When you think about “sports medicine,” you probably picture athletic trainers on the sidelines of a football game, or a fitness program developed specifically for college or professional athletes. But while the word “sports” admittedly suggests a connection to exercise and fitness, the unique care offered by sports medicine professionals is equally available to all of us–whether you’re a weekend warrior or just a “regular Joe” dealing with pain in your bones, joints, or muscles.
The orthopedics and sports medicine team here at Southeastern Med works with patients of all ages and backgrounds. Along with helping to treat common on-field sports injuries like sprains, strains, and fractures, they’re extremely skilled in diagnosing and treating a wide range of less obvious conditions. Specifically, they can help patients find solutions for reducing the type of chronic pain that might be hindering their ability to work, exercise, or sleep.
As we get older, many of us simply accept nagging joint or muscle pain as an unavoidable fact of life. This is problematic in two ways. For one, there are often helpful treatment options that can help limit our pain and allow us to live more comfortable, active lives. Secondly, by avoiding treatment in the earlier stages of pain, we might be increasing the risk of a more serious problem developing over time. Persistent pain can also, in some cases, be a symptom of a more immediate medical concern.
Fortunately, sports medicine provides a simple catch-all for everything from an aching ankle to a sore shoulder. By meeting with a member of our team, you’ll have the benefit of a world class facility and state-of-the-art equipment right here in your own neck of the woods. We’ll help determine the likely cause of your pain or injury and guide you through a helpful treatment plan, whether it involves a surgical procedure, a training/rehab regimen, diet changes, or some combination of all of these. So GET MOVING today and don’t tolerate another day with unnecessary pain. Contact Southeastern Med to arrange an appointment with our Orthopedics and Sports Medicine team!
