Sports medicine involves the treatment of pain and injuries that occur through participation in sports. Treatment and therapies for sports injury pain can enhance performance, reduce the risk of injuries before they happen, and aid in faster recovery. Sports injuries can be the result of accidents, improper training, or insufficient stretching. Some of the most common sports injuries are sprains and strains, fractures, and dislocations.
No matter the sport, the body is prone to a sports injury. Many sports injuries are the result of damage to muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. Some of the most common sports injuries treated at Advanced Wellness of Westfield include:
