Whether you’re engaged in high-intensity sports or regular exercise, both indoor and outdoor activities can lead to sports and musculoskeletal injuries. These can stem from unforeseen accidents, improper training practices, inadequate use of safety gear, or insufficient pre-activity stretching and warm-ups. Common injuries we encounter include sprains, strains, tendonitis, overuse injuries, fractures, and dislocations. Intricacies of musculoskeletal and spine injuries can often present overlapping symptoms, with conditions such as back and hip pain potentially interrelated. At Pacific Sports & Spine, our expert team is adept at discerning and diagnosing these complex conditions, ensuring you receive the right treatment for your specific injury.

Foot & Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries include the injuries in the leg below the knee. They are common in athletes who play sports, such as football, hockey and skating. Common sports injuries to the foot and ankle include sprains, strains, ankle fractures and Achilles tendinitis. Treatment for these conditions may include orthotics, braces, physical therapy, injections or surgery.

Shoulder Injuries

Severe pain in your shoulders while playing your favorite sport, such as tennis, basketball and gymnastics, may be caused by a torn ligament or dislocation of the shoulder bone. This may result from overuse of your shoulder. For shoulder pain, sports medicine doctors may treat an acute injury or one causing minor pain with conservative treatments, while chronic injuries may require interventional or surgical treatment.

Hip Injuries

Fractures of the femur bone, labral tear and hip dislocation are some of the common sports injuries affecting the hip. The hip joint bears more weight and is more susceptible to injuries while playing sports. Hip injuries require immediate medical intervention to avoid further complications. Rehabilitation and physical therapy is often recommended following medical intervention to strengthen muscles and improve movement.

Knee Injuries

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a major stabilizing ligament in the knee, which may tear with overuse. The ACL has poor ability to heal and may cause instability. Other common sports injuries of the knee include cartilage damage and meniscal tear. Sports-related knee injuries may require surgical intervention, which can be performed using open surgical or a minimally invasive technique. Physical therapy may also be needed to strengthen muscles and improve elasticity and movement of the bones and joints.
