Orthopedic Sports Medicine Treatment

Meet our team and learn about sports medicine treatments.

Sports medicine deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of sports-related injuries incurred by recreational and professional athletes. Some common sports-related injuries that we see at Mid-America Orthopedics Kansas City include ACL tears, ankle fractures and sprains, and rotator cuff tears. However, our sports medicine physicians can address any pain or injury throughout the body, even if that pain isn’t acute or chronic yet. Our goal is that you’re able to return to competing and performing at a high level again.

In our experience, minor to moderate sports-related injuries are often treatable with home treatments such as rest, ice, elevation, compression, and over-the-counter anti-inflammatories. If these treatments fail, it may be beneficial to consult one of our orthopedic sports medicine specialists for further evaluation. During your consultation, a physician will identify the root cause of your pain and provide a treatment plan specific to you. This also gives them an opportunity to ask you questions regarding when the injury first presented itself and the circumstances in which it occurred. This type of information is critical when dealing with sports-related injuries, so the consultation is an important first step in a patient’s recovery.

The practice of sports medicine involves a large array of treatment options which may include activity modification, neuromuscular retraining, autologous blood product injections, steroid injections, advanced imaging, and as a last resort, surgical treatment. In the event you require surgery, Mid-America Orthopedics Kansas City has a team of the best orthopedic surgeons in the area with decades of combined experience. Once your surgery is complete, we can guide you through the next steps of rehabilitation and physical therapy. It’s important to us that we not only heal your sports-related injury, but take the precautionary steps to ensure that you don’t get injured again. This usually entails taking a slow and measured approach to physical activity so that your body can appropriately heal.

Today, many more patients living in the Kansas City area are seeking out treatment from sports medicine specialists so that they may continue performing at the highest level. Our team at Mid-America Orthopedics works with all levels of athlete at any age. If you’ve incurred an injury while playing competitive sports or other physical activity such as weight lifting or running, we encourage you to get in touch with us. Pushing through the pain could increase the severity of the injury, which may lead to you needing more extensive treatment.

Reach out to our team at Mid-America Orthopedics Kansas City to set up a consultation for your sports-related injury today. For the convenience of our patients, we are typically able to provide same day or next day appointments for examinations.
