Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Information
Sports medicine is a relatively new discipline that has evolved out of the need to diagnose and treat the ever increasing injuries suffered by countless fitness oriented people, amateur athletes and professional athletes worldwide. A combination of surgery, rehabilitation, and preventive conditioning has allowed athletes to return to the playing field after seemingly "career ending" injuries.
Many orthopedic injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome are caused by repetitive tasks such as typing and not by sports or exercise related activity. Sports medicine and orthopedic doctors have also become very skilled at diagnosing and treating such conditions. With the help of magnetic resonance imaging, arthroscopic surgery and new rehabilitation techniques, nagging orthopedic injuries can be diagnosed and treated with more accuracy than ever before.
