Sports Medicine

Sports injuries could be new or recurring musculoskeletal complaints or concussion that occurs during training or competition. Traumatic sports injuries are common and mainly happen due to poor or improper training practices, poor health conditions, improper sports gear, and improper stretching practices before the exercise or sporting event. Overuse sports injuries occur when a person is pushed beyond their physical limits, or poor techniques, or training errors. The most commonly occurring sports injuries are strains and sprains. Strains are injuries to tendons or muscle fibers, whereas sprains are injuries to the ligaments. 

The Sports Medicine Service at UMMC has a unique tea of physicians, athletic trainers, sports scientists, and physical therapists who work collaboratively and provide the best medical care for athletic illnesses and injuries. We have a state-of-the-art advanced clinic that helps in faster rehabilitation and a smooth return to activity and sports. We are equipped with all diagnostic facilities like pathology and imaging under one roof. Our surgeons not only offer to join preservation surgeries but also focus on avoiding surgery whenever possible by using cutting-edge, non-operative treatments. 

A sports injury specialist is assigned to each patient who recommends more advanced management by orthotics, bracing, immobilization, medication-protected weight-bearing, injections, and surgery. The specialist communicates with athletic trainers, coaches, and family if necessary. They device rehabilitation protocols based on the sport, injury, and player position. Also, they offer nutrition guidelines, dietary supplements, and injury prevention for exercise enhancement and sports.
