What is bracing?

Broken bones or fractured bones often benefit from being held in place with a brace. This is why many doctors recommend wearing a brace if the bones in your leg, arm or another part of your body are broken or partially fractured.

Wearing a brace is a common, non-surgical treatment option for many sports-related injuries. From bone misalignment injuries to shoulders or knees being dislocated, a brace may be the best way to treat your specific injury.

What is casting?

Wearing a cast remains one of the most common, non-surgical treatment options for a broken bone. That’s why it’s common for many injured athletes to wear a cast to hold a broken arm, leg or another injured body part in place.

By wearing a cast, the broken bones are held in place and should grow back together naturally. Wearing a cast is often advised for people with a partial bone fracture, stress fracture or clean break in the bone. A compound fracture may require a different treatment option.

What is pain medication treatment?

Serious pain caused by a severe sports injury is a very significant issue. That’s why we take complaints about pain due to a sports-related injury very seriously. Our doctors have extensive pain management experience. We can prescribe pain relief medications for your injury or if you are still in pain while recovering from a surgical procedure.

If you have severe back pain – especially in the lower back – due to a sports-related injury, an epidural (pain-relieving shot) may be the most effective way to relieve your back pain. That’s why it’s important to consult with an experienced doctor at IMC Bone Doc if you are in pain due to an athletic injury.
