Sports Injuries Can Affect All Fitness Levels
May 15, 2017
Sports injuries are the kinds of injuries that most commonly occur during sports or exercise. It is estimated that seven million Americans receive medical attention for sports and recreation related injuries annually.
“No matter if you’re a weekend warrior, school gymnast, football player, fitness center enthusiast, or just a casual biker or walker, you can experience pain or injury from an activity,” says Dr. Jeffrey Padalecki, ARC Orthopedic Surgeon and Sports Medicine specialist. “Injured areas can include muscle, ligament, tendon, and bone problems.”
In this recent podcast, Dr. Padalecki says “If you have any signs of sports injury, make an appointment with an Orthopedic Surgeon like myself who can evaluate and treat the issue, and help you get back to your active lifestyle.”
If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Padalecki, you have your choice of three locations to be seen. You can make an appointment online or by calling the clinic that is most convenient to you.
