Sports Injuries Q & A

What are the most common sports injuries?

There are a number of sports injuries that are common to both athletes and fitness enthusiasts. Some common injuries include:

  • Sprains, strains and fractures

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury

  • Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury

  • Tennis elbow

  • Achilles tendinitis

  • Shin splints

  • Meniscus tears

  • Golfer's elbow 

These are just a few of the many common sports injuries, but there are much more. 

What treatments are available for sports injuries?

The Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics team offers some highly effective therapies for sports injuries. They develop a personalized treatment plan for you that combines these options, helping you manage your condition better.

Some of the treatments available include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication

  • Physical therapy

  • Activity modification

  • Steroid injections

These conservative treatments often provide great benefit to patients with sports injuries. However, if you find your condition isn’t improving with conservative treatments, you may want to discuss surgical options with the team at Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics.

What are the surgical options for sports injuries?

In some situations, the body will not be able to repair itself, and that is when surgery may be the next best option. There are a number of surgeries that can address specific sports injuries. For example, a patient who suffers from a severely torn and damaged anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), may need a surgical procedure that will reconstruct the ACL entirely. 

Injuries like fractures often require surgical intervention as well. After a consultation at Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics, the team will consider whether surgery is truly the best option for full healing.

How long is recovery for sports injuries?

Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts are anxious to get back to their favorite activities, and they often ask how long they must wait before they can participate in competitions or workouts. 

It’s important for patients with sports injuries to understand that the recovery period is an essential part of the healing process. 

In order for your body to heal completely and prevent future complications, the team at Las Vegas Concierge Orthopedics recommends a treatment plan that allows you to achieve the best recovery possible without risking future injury. Depending on your unique condition, the recovery process will vary from person to person.
