Sports & Rehabilitation Medicine


Sports injuries are not exclusive to athletes and can occur during various physical activities, both indoor and outdoor. Factors contributing to these injuries include accidents, inadequate protective gear, insufficient training, and the absence of proper warm-up routines.

Common symptoms of sports injuries include various types of pain (sharp, stabbing, cramping, burning, dull, achy, or throbbing), bruising, swelling, joint stiffness, limited range of motion, muscle spasms, difficulty using a limb, numbness, tingling, weakness, redness, and increased temperature at the site of injury.

Serious symptoms that warrant immediate medical attention include severe sports injuries like fractures and dislocations, deformity or lump on the injured joint, inability to move a joint, open wounds, severe pain or swelling, and unusual sounds during the injury.

Sports medicine physicians offer specialized medical care for sports- or exercise-related injuries, performance enhancement, overall fitness improvement, sports injury prevention, and maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.

Common injuries treated by sports medicine physicians include shoulder injuries (torn rotator cuff), knee injuries (torn ACL, PCL, or meniscus), ankle injuries (sprains, strains, or instability), fractures, elbow injuries (golfer’s elbow, pitcher’s elbow, tennis elbow), and dislocated joints.

Orthopaedic surgeons or sports injury specialists are consulted when individuals experience sports-related injuries, seek performance improvement, undergo routine check-ups, or require guidance on using safety gear for specific joints. Orthopaedic surgeons may choose to specialize in specific branches known as subspecialties, such as hand and upper extremities, trauma surgery, foot and ankle (podiatry), pediatric orthopaedics, sports medicine, orthopaedic oncology, spine surgery, and joint replacement surgery.
