A sports or exercise injury can be painful and debilitating enough to take away one’s quality of life. Wear and tear of soft tissues and joints stem from sporting activities and exercises. Acute sports and exercise injuries are then caused by the weakening of soft tissues and joint – resulting in posture imbalances and instability. At Spine and Sports Medicine, our acclaimed professionals treat sporting injuries and conditions from a Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Team Approach.

It is imperative for athletes to seek diagnosis and treatment immediately following an injury from a Sports Medicine Doctor. Dr. Brian Kessler – Medical Director of Spine and Sports Medicine – advises prompt medical care to reduce the duration of your injury and restore pain-free function.

Overuse and General Wear and Tear
Poor conditioning and/or constant strain over a prolonged period of time may result in an injury or condition going unnoticed until pain sets in. Once pain arises, an overuse and general wear and tear injury will become debilitating without treatment. Sports Medicine gives a body the chance to recover without taking an athlete out of the game for an extended period of time. At Spine and Sports Medicine, our Sports Medicine Doctors will accurately diagnose the root cause of a sport or exercise injury before designing a customized treatment plan for expedited recovery and pain relief.
