Sports and Active Lifestyle

 

Playing Sports and Maintaining an Active Lifestyle

Getting regular exercise is essential for good health. Physical activity helps maintain a strong heart and a healthy weight. But sometimes injuries can leave you sitting on the sideline.

As you age, your risk for joint and muscle injuries increases. Weekend warriors and casual exercisers alike may experience strains, sprains, ligament tears and broken bones.

Whether you experienced a sudden injury or your pain has been developing over time, it’s important that you seek out expert medical care. It’s also wise to develop a preventive care plan with your orthopedic doctor as well.  

Treatment Options for Bone and Muscle Injuries

If you’re experiencing any kind of activity-related injury, such as those to your bones or muscles, turn to an orthopedic doctor. Many injuries can be treated by resting the area, icing it at different times throughout the day, wrapping it in a bandage and elevating it. Your orthopedist can teach you how to wrap the injured area and help you determine how often to ice it.

In some cases, your orthopedist might also advise you to wear a splint or brace. Many people benefit from physical therapy.

If the injury is severe enough, an orthopedic surgeon may be your best ally. For some people, orthopedic surgery is needed to replace a joint or repair a ligament, for example.
