Sports Medicine Physicians in Delray Beach, FL
Physically active and athletic people can be especially susceptible to orthopedic injuries and problems. The specialty of sports medicine relates to improving the performance and well-being of the physically active person.
No matter what sport you play or physical activity you pursue, exercise can take its toll and injury can happen all of a sudden or gradually over time. Tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones are susceptible to injury from twisting, jumping, throwing, impact, or overuse. You can injure yourself if you don’t warm up, have poor training habits, or use ill-fitting or improper equipment.
At South Palm Orthopedics in Delray Beach, we treat athletes of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re an amateur baseball player or a professional golfer, a gym rat or a weekend warrior, our sports medicine specialists will diagnose and treat your injury so you can get back to doing what you love as quickly and safely as possible.
Most sports injuries heal with conservative treatment such as rest, ice, medication, injections, and physical therapy. Injuries such as completely torn ligaments or tendons, however, may require surgery and post-operative rehab to help you return to your sport. Our sports medicine doctors will discuss your treatment options in detail so you can make the decision that will best accommodate your goals.
If you’ve suffered any kind of injury that is hampering your ability to exercise, play, or compete, contact our sports medicine physicians in Delray Beach today at (561) 496-6622 to schedule an appointment, or you can request one online.
