The immense strain and impact of sports puts your body at risk of a wide range of injuries, especially your knees, shoulders, ankles, and back. Without proper treatment, a serious sports injury can sideline you for the rest of your life. At Long Beach Orthopedic Center, we take great care to provide treatment for athletes of all ages and all activity levels. Some of the most common injuries we see at our center are:
- Dislocations – Bone ends that are forced away from their normal positions
- Fractures – Breaks or cracks in bone
- Sprains – Stretched or torn ligaments
At our center, you will find that our doctors place a primary focus on non-invasive treatment approaches. This is so you can achieve your previous level of activity without the need for lengthy recovery times. Some of the best non-invasive treatments for sports injuries are rest, compression, ice therapy, and physical therapy. If surgery is necessary for a more serious injury, we utilize modern techniques that allow for more minimally-invasive techniques than ever before.
