Orthopedic Sports Medicine Q & A

How is sports medicine different than other medical fields?

At Town Center Orthopaedics, our board-certified, fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians focus on preventing, diagnosing, and treating injuries that occur due to sports or other energetic activities. We also work closely with physical therapists, athletic trainers, and team physicians to optimize your recovery.

What conditions can sports medicine physicians treat?

Sports medicine physicians are experts in treating all musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries, including:

The Town Center Orthopaedics team has expert skills in both diagnosing and treating these and many other types of sports injuries. They also use their knowledge to help prevent these kinds of injuries. Our orthopedic surgeons have held team physician roles for US Figure Skating, Washington Commanders, Special Olympics, Reston Triathlon, and a number of local high schools.

What treatments does sports medicine offer?

For most issues, nonsurgical treatment will fix your problem. Physical therapy is often a very important component of this treatment. As a result, the sports medicine team at Town Center Orthopaedics combines an extensive selection of physical therapies with the most innovative and advanced interventions. They have exceptional facilities providing services such as:

  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization
  • Trigger point dry needling
  • Sportsmetrics™
  • Functional movement assessment
  • Joint mobilization
  • Manual manipulation
  • Corrective exercise regimens
  • Walking and running mechanics
  • Balance training
  • Core stabilization
  • Sport taping
  • Splinting

In addition to active physical therapies, you might require a brace or orthotics, or passive treatments like therapeutic ultrasound. Your team at Town Center Orthopaedics can take care of it all for you.

What other interventions does sports medicine use?

When physical therapy isn’t enough, you can benefit from a range of other interventions.

Various injections, such as cortisone, gel injections, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections, and stem cells can sometimes be beneficial for reducing persistent tissue inflammation. Surgery also may be necessary. If so, the skilled sports medicine surgeons have specialist training in performing minimally invasive procedures, including arthroscopic approaches, that optimize your recovery.
