Sports injuries are common, but they can also be serious. The experienced doctors at Innovative Medical Center provide customized, comprehensive treatment programs to patients who have suffered sports injuries. The goal of treatment is to rehabilitate the affected area and alleviate pain. This service is available to patients throughout Fresno, California, and the surrounding area.
Sports injuries are injuries sustained by people while participating in sporting events. Some of the most common sports injuries include:
The symptoms of sports injuries vary based on the type of injury. In general, patients with sports injuries may experience pain, redness, swelling, limited mobility, and stiffness after experiencing a sports injury.
Innovative Medical Center offers medically directed rehab programs to patients who have experienced sports injuries. This program is designed to promote healing and optimize the patient’s wellness following one of these injuries. The program includes medically-directed exercises, health education, and therapy services customized to meet the needs of each individual patient.
The medically directed rehab program can reduce the pain associated with both acute and chronic conditions. It can also improve the patient’s overall function, allowing them to gain strength and stability. When a patient has suffered a sports injury, beginning medically directed rehab quickly helps the patient to restore function to that part of the body and limit any permanent disability related to the accident.
When a patient comes in with a sports injury, the doctors at Innovative Medical Center will begin by evaluating the patient thoroughly so they can create a customized medically directed rehab program. Depending on the situation, this program may include exercises to improve strength, endurance, and flexibility as well as more advanced exercises to improve balance and coordination. Patients participating in a medically directed rehab program may also undergo trigger point injections, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and electrical stimulation.
Many sports injuries will heal over time, but others may cause chronic problems. The purpose of the medically directed rehab program is to promote healing and help the patient optimize their function, strength, and mobility. Most patients notice they continue to improve with multiple sessions at Innovative Medical Center.
