Sports Injuries Q & A

What are the main causes of sports injuries?

The most common sports injuries treated by doctors are:

  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Ankle sprain
  • Lower back pain
  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Dislocations and fractures

How are sports injuries diagnosed?

The doctors at Garden State Pain Control have a full range of advanced diagnostic technologies available in-house, so they can accurately diagnose injuries and the cause of pain. But when it comes to sports injuries, they frequently perform a diagnostic ultrasound.

Diagnostic ultrasound evaluation is the first choice for musculoskeletal injuries because it produces detailed images and uses sound waves, so you’re not exposed to radiation. It also shows areas of inflammation and bone erosion, which aren’t visible using X-rays.

How are sports injuries treated?

After you sustain a sports injury, the goal is to prevent further damage to the area, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. Initially, you may use rest, ice, compression, and elevation of the affected area to reduce inflammation and swelling. Immobilization is sometimes needed to prevent further damage while the injury heals.

Two key elements of treatment for sports injuries are:

Peripheral joint injections

When you have pain in a peripheral joint -- the hip, shoulder, elbow, wrist, foot, or ankle -- joint injections can be used to diagnose the precise source of your pain, then to provide pain relief. Your doctor at Garden State Pain Control injects steroid medication using ultrasound to guide precise placement of the needle. Steroids reduce inflammation and stop pain for several weeks to months.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy, including a comprehensive rehabilitation program, is a vital component of treatment for sports injuries. It helps the injured area regain normal strength and function, and reconditions your body so you can safely return to your athletic activities.

How does platelet-rich plasma heal sports injuries?

Your blood contains tiny solid components called platelets. Platelets are packed with proteins called growth factors, which promote healing by triggering the growth of new cells and tissues.

Platelet-rich plasma is developed by drawing blood from a patient and separating platelets from the blood sample. When all the platelets are added back to a small amount of liquid plasma, you have highly concentrated, platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

Your doctor at Garden State Pain Control uses ultrasound to guide needle placement, then injects your own PRP into your sports injury. The PRP helps muscles, tendons, and ligaments heal faster, it reduces inflammation and encourages the growth of new tissues to replace damaged tissues.
