Sports Injury Treatment Options
Our New York orthopedic sports medicine surgeons explain your options
Getting the right medical treatment for your sports injury can make a dramatic difference in your recovery. When done right, you will hopefully be able to do everything you did before your sports injury. That’s why it’s critical that you receive your medical care from an experienced, sports medicine doctor familiar with the most effective treatment options.
Our doctors at Island Musculoskeletal Care (IMC Bone Doc) in New York know exactly what to do. That’s because our New York orthopedic sports surgeons have more than 100 years of combined medical experience. We know what different symptoms mean. We know how to diagnose what’s wrong. We know what treatment options work. We can explain which approaches make the most sense for you.
Don’t underestimate the seriousness of your sports injury. If you’re in pain and cannot do many of the things you may take for granted, you may need extensive medical care. Otherwise, your medical condition may get worse. Your recovery may take longer or you may not fully recover at all. That’s why it’s important to schedule an appointment right away with one of our doctors. Many of our physicians have immediate appointments available the same day.
What treatment options are available for sports injuries?
In general, there are three main types of medical treatment available for people with sports injuries:
- Surgical sports medicine procedures
- Non-surgical sports medicine procedures
- Sports medicine physical therapy
Sometimes, you may only need one type of treatment. Other times, you may need both or a combination of all three listed above.
Our surgeons know how to diagnose what’s wrong. We also understand the urgency of these medical issues. That’s why each one of our seven office locations has advanced diagnostic equipment – including an MRI machine in each office.
If your treatment plan includes physical therapy, we can help you as well. That’s because each one of our seven offices has a licensed physical therapist on staff. That way, you can get the treatment you want for your sports injury at an office close to you.
