Injuries

Assessing the Damage

Injuries affecting the joints of the body can be caused by stress, strain, over-use or even by accident. Determining exactly how you are injured has a tremendous impact on how we treat the damage and prevent it from reoccurring.

Patients have relied on Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine for over 25 years to correctly diagnose and individually treat the full spectrum of joint-related injuries, whether caused athletically or through everyday active living. We work closely with every patient to understand how it affects their lives and to ensure that they reach their personal goals safety over the long-term.

Here are the most common injuries we encounter and treat frequently:

  • Overuse Injuries: Overuse of a joint isn't just caused by sports or exercise - it can also be caused by everyday activity at home or at work. Rotator cuff tendonitis of the shoulder from repeated overhead use is just one example.
  • Acute Athletic Injuries:  Whether on the field, the slopes, or in your own back yard, we realize that a fresh injury may not only be painful physically, but can create considerable anxiety and concern with the uncertainty of your prognosis and future. That's why we pledge to have you evaluated at our clinic as efficiently and quickly as possible, frequently within 24 hours.
  • Chronic Injuries: Reoccurring injuries can be very hard on the body, and demoralizing to the patient. That's why we work closely with each patient to understand why an injury keeps occurring. Once the injury has been diagnosed and treated, education, conditioning and physical therapy are crucial to ensuring that the chances of that injury reoccurring are low.
  • Exercise-related Injuries: As with sports, the joy of exercise can often be found in pushing your body to its limits. Reaching those limits can mean an injured knee, shoulder, ankle or other joint.
  • Wintertime Injuries: Many wintertime injuries can be caused by the high-impact of sports such as skiing or hockey. However, even low-impact activity in winter can also be hard on the body's joints; simply because of the strain that cold places on ligaments and muscles. As winter sports enthusiasts ourselves, we specialize in treating these types of injuries, no matter how they are caused.

These are just a few of the common joint-related injuries we work with patients to treat on a daily basis.
