Millions of Americans play sports everyday. Some go for a run before work in the morning. Others enjoy a round of golf or a competitive game of basketball on the weekends. Over eight million young men and women play high school and college sports according to reports by the NCAA and the National Federation of State High School Associations. It’s natural for injuries to happen with physical activity—whether it’s stopping and changing direction too quickly on the soccer field or stretching improperly before a run. No matter the injury, immediate treatment is always the best solution.
At Brookwood Baptist Health, we deliver world-class orthopedic care for athletes of all ages. Our sports medicine specialists are skilled and experienced in treating all types of sports-related injuries, from fractures and sprains to tears and concussions. We use state-of-the-art equipment and procedures that enable fast and precise diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
We understand that each sports-related injury requires a different and exact treatment plan. In addition to developing different approaches to injuries in youths versus adults, we also understand that women and men are prone different athletic injuries. For example, young women are 2-8 times more likely to tear their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) than men, according to the National Institute of Health. We provide advice and care based on the widest range of knowledge, so you receive the most personalized treatment plan.
Physical therapy is also a top priority at Brookwood Baptist Health. Our orthopedic doctors work closely with physical therapists and certified athletic trainers to prevent future injuries and to ensure you stay physically active. The medical professionals at Brookwood Baptist Health are dedicated to facilitating a healthy, active lifestyle before, during, and after an injury.
