Sports Injuries

If you are recovering from a sports-related injury such as an ACL tear, ankle fracture or concussion, Good Shepherd’s expert care team can help. We treat athletes of all ages and skill levels suffering from pain related to a sports injury.

We use some of the most advanced clinical resources and technologies to diagnose and treat a wide range of sports injuries. Good Shepherd’s unique, multidisciplinary approach has helped in the recovery of athletes across all levels of competition – high school, college and professional. Our goal is to help you get back in the game as quickly as possible.

Treatment for Sports Injuries

At Good Shepherd, we understand that each sports injury – and each patient – is unique.  That’s why we develop specific treatment plans to help you achieve your specific goals.

The most frequent sports injuries are:

  • Concussion
  • Muscle strains and pulls
  • Joint sprains and ligament tears
  • Fractures
  • Overuse problems like tendonitis and bursitis 

Depending on the severity of the injury, the initial phase of recovery often involves protection and stabilization of the injured area, which may include wearing a sling, using crutches, splinting or even surgical repair.  During this period we work on controlling pain, swelling and inflammation, maintaining motion, preventing muscle atrophy and creating an environment to allow the body to promote its own healing, which takes time and rest. 

Following this initial phase of recovery, we work on regaining strength, flexibility, muscular balance and coordination.  We also design sport-specific drills to retrain body and position awareness to allow athletes to regain the skills and conditioning they’ll need to return to their sport safely.

Sports Injury Recovery

Recovery times vary depending on your injury.  But it is unwise to rush the process and risk re-injury.  Re-injuring the tissue can chronically weaken joints or muscles, making you more susceptible for repeat problems and extending the cycle of injury.

Most athletes do return to their sport, even after serious injury.
