Sports Medicine includes the prevention and treatment of conditions as a result of sports-related injuries. These types of injuries can occur during both moderate and intense forms of exercise. The sports medicine specialists at Carle McLean County Orthopedics treat weekend warriors, athletes, and non-athletes who experience orthopedic injuries or pain. Our professional team is dedicated to helping patients recover from current injuries, preventing future complications, and improving athletic performance.
Sports-related injuries can encompass a variety of orthopedic issues such as ACL tears, torn ligaments, torn rotator cuffs, sprains, strains, fractures, dislocations, overuse injuries, and more. These injuries can also include joint pain in the knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, hand, wrist, foot, and ankle. There are many factors involved in diagnosis, including physical examination, medical history, and imaging tests. Patients can benefit from Carle MCO's state-of-the-art imaging equipment, allowing for quick and easy MRIs and x-rays.
