Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is a field of health care that focuses on common injuries and conditions that develop because of sports.

The providers at Congress Orthopaedic Associates diagnose and treat common sports-related injuries in adults and children. They specialize in conditions like:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Achilles tendon injuries

The physicians also address painful overuse injuries, such as runner’s knee and tennis elbow, that are common in athletes who play certain sports.

You should schedule a diagnostic evaluation with the orthopedic specialists at Congress Orthopaedic Associates if you have persistent pain or mobility issues that prevent you from staying physically active.

What can I expect during a sports medicine consultation?

During your initial consultation for a sports-related injury, the providers at Congress Orthopaedic Associates review your medical history, the type of sports you participate in, and your symptoms. The physicians physically examine that area of your injury to test your flexibility and strength. They also assess your range of motion and your mobility.

To confirm your diagnosis, your provider may request X-rays or other diagnostic imaging tests. Congress Orthopaedic Associates also offers a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) center on-site in both the Pasadena and Arcadia offices.

Based on the results of your testing, your orthopedic specialist will design a treatment plan to relieve your pain and improve the function of your shoulder joint. They may recommend medications or physical therapy to restore your physical function.

The Pasadena, California, office also has a state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center where practice surgeons repair joint damage, soft tissue tears, and other common sports injuries.
