Exercising and sports activities are good for you, but sometimes you can injure yourself when you play sports or exercise. Accidents, poor training practices, or improper gear can cause them. Some people get hurt because they are not in shape. Not warming up or stretching enough can also lead to injuries. The most common sports injuries are:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Knee injuries
  • Swollen muscles
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Pain along the shin bone
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations

If you get hurt, stop playing. Continuing to play or exercise can cause more harm. Treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery.

Dr. Sean Tracy, and the orthopedic specialists at Wisconsin Bone & Joint, bring a very deep clinical knowledge to every sports injury assessment.

Dr. Tracy, in addition to his clinical orthopedic training, has obtained additional clinical board-certification in Sports Medicine.   Sports Medicine board certification training focuses on the unique injury groupings found in athletes.
