Sports Medicine Q&A
What is sports medicine?
Sports medicine is medical care for sports-related injuries, which affect your musculoskeletal system. This includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bones, and joints. The European Wellness Cosmedical team offers a wide array of treatments to help you recover quickly, so you can resume training and get back out on the court or field.
What are common sports injuries?
Sports-related injuries common among athletes include:
- Torn meniscus
- Joint injuries
- Tendon tears
Signs you have an injury requiring treatment include swelling, stiffness, redness, warmth, severe or long-lasting pain, reduced mobility, and limited range of motion. You might hear cracking or popping sounds during some injuries.
How are sports injuries diagnosed?
To find out more about your injury and its severity, your provider asks questions about your symptoms and examines the site of the injury. They might use blood tests, X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to diagnose your condition and develop a treatment plan.
Which sports medicine treatments are available?
Some of the sports medicine treatments the European Wellness Cosmedical team might include:
If your injury is minor, your sports medicine specialist may suggest resting the injury, applying heat or ice to it, or wearing a brace until the injury heals.
Your European Wellness Cosmedical provider can refer out for physical therapy as part of your sports injury treatment plan.
Regenerative medicine is a revolutionary, nonsurgical treatment in which your provider injects biological materials into the site of injuries to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. They offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections sourced from your blood, exosomes, and mesenchymal stem cells.
NovaTHOR uses red light energy to reduce joint pain and inflammation, redevelop muscles, restore joint motion, and accelerate healing without discomfort or downtime.
Cryotherapy consists of cold energy that decreases pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with sports injuries. It can optimize recovery with deeper penetration and faster results than ice packs alone.
