What are the most common sports injuries?

Though many sports injuries are accidental, your risk of sustaining an injury is higher when you don’t get the right training, develop fatigue from overtraining, or you don’t wear the proper gear.

The Daniel Loder, MD, team helps people recover from many types of sports injuries, including common problems such as:

  • Hip injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Meniscus injuries
  • Labral tears
  • Tennis or golfer’s elbow
  • Runner’s knee
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tendon injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis

The sports medicine specialists at the office of Daniel Loder, MD, support your recovery using regenerative medicine. They also offer safe and effective pain management so you can participate in your rehabilitation.

What symptoms develop due to sports injuries?

Injuries to your ligaments, tendons, muscles, and bones cause a group of symptoms, including:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Joint instability
  • Limited movement
  • Muscle weakness
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Inability to use the affected limb

If you have any questions or concerns, your symptoms get worse, or you can’t use the affected limb, you should see a doctor. Continuing to use injured tissues and joints can lead to more severe damage and chronic weakness or instability.

What sports medicine treatments might I receive?

Your provider at the office of Daniel Loder, MD, determines the source of your pain and creates an individualized sports medicine treatment plan that supports your recovery and rehabilitation with treatments such as:

Regenerative medicine

Your body depends on its supply of orthobiologic treatments to heal your injury. Platelets accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and support new cell growth. Orthobiologic treatmentsregenerate the new tissues you need to repair the damaged tissues.

But sometimes your body’s supply falls short, and you heal too slowly. If your injury is severe, it’s healing slowly, or the damaged tissues don’t have a good supply of blood, you can speed up your recovery with orthobiologic treatments.

When your provider injects orthobiologic treatments, they use real-time imaging to view the tissues and guide the needle. This allows them to inject your treatment precisely at the damaged tissues.

Interventional medicine

Nothing is more important for your recovery than physical therapy and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, sports injuries often leave you in too much pain to fully participate in your therapy.

The Daniel Loder, MD, sports medicine team offers pain management services. They use safe interventional therapies such as nerve blocks, epidural injections, joint injections, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulation to provide the pain relief you need to rehabilitate.
