Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is an area of medicine focused on helping active people recover from their injury as quickly as possible so they can get back to doing what they enjoy. The team at McKenna Orthopedics received specialized training in sports medicine and has helped both world-class athletes and amateur sports enthusiasts recover from their injuries, and prevent future injuries.  

What are common sports injuries?

You can injure any part of your body when you participate in a sport or physical activity. Some of the common sports injuries managed at McKenna Orthopedics include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Patellofemoral syndrome
  • Runner’s knee
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Lower back pain
  • Ankle injuries

The orthopedic experts manage any injury that affects your musculoskeletal system, which includes your muscles, ligaments, bones, cartilage, or tendons.

What type of treatment can I expect from sports medicine?

Your sports medicine specialist at McKenna Orthopedics develops personalized treatment plans to help you recover from your injury. The type of treatment you need may depend on your injury, sport, and overall health. Your treatment plan may include:

  • Over-the-counter pain medication or anti-inflammatories
  • Physical therapy
  • Injections
  • Surgery

The team at McKenna Orthopedics also offers stem cell therapy to accelerate the healing process and may recommend it as part of your treatment plan to help you recover from your sports injury.

What is stem cell therapy?

The team at McKenna Orthopedics offers a more advanced form of stem cell therapy that combines the stem cells from your bone marrow with an amniotic transplant to create a stem cell treatment that contains more growth factors and prostaglandins than traditional stem cell therapies. The prostaglandins in the treatment inhibit inflammation, which allows your body to move on to the regenerative stage of the healing process a lot faster.

The orthopedic specialists may use stem cell therapy as a nonsurgical injection to help heal injured tissue or combine it with a surgical procedure to help you recover faster.

Sport injuries require care from sports medicine specialists who can provide the treatment you need so you can get back to your activities. For management of your injury from a team who offers cutting-edge treatments, call McKenna Orthopedics today or book an appointment online.
