Get Back in the Game Faster with Our Multifaceted Approach to Sports Injuries

Sports medicine aims to help athletes achieve or regain peak performance by helping their bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments work well together. It also focuses on injury prevention and whole body wellness.

At CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center, with multiple locations in Maryland, our board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists treat a wide range of sports-related injuries by using a broad spectrum of therapies tailored to each patient. In this blog, our providers talk about the multifaceted approach our practice offers.

Sports medicine treatment options

Our multidisciplinary approach to pain management and rehabilitation includes many noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments, which can help you recover without needing to resort to surgery. We can also help with pain management and strength and flexibility training to help you avoid injuries in the future.

Your specific condition or injury will determine which treatments we make a part of your recovery plan. Here are some of the treatments we often recommend for our patients:

Chiropractic care and/or osteopathic manipulation

These manual therapies focus on the musculoskeletal system, seeking to align the bones, muscles, and connective tissues for maximum comfort and performance. These therapies, which are gentle, can also provide pain relief.

Injections to reduce inflammation and/or relieve pain 

If you have pain that makes it difficult to undergo therapies aimed at helping your body heal, we may recommend getting injections of corticosteroids or other substances. These injections can provide fast relief, and they can last for days or weeks. These soft tissue injections are usually reserved for spine or joint pain.

Relaxation therapies and techniques to reduce pain

There are many relaxation treatments that can be used alone or in combination with other therapies to reduce pain and relax muscles. Some of these treatments include the following:

Our team at CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center also offers medication management for continued care at home. Furthermore, we can recommend exercises to help increase strength and flexibility and help keep you from getting injured in the future.

If you’ve suffered a sports-related injury, or if another health issue is keeping you from realizing your full potential as an athlete, we can help. Our providers will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss your next steps. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with CHOICE Pain & Rehabilitation Center today.

Our Maryland offices are located in Hyattsville, Gaithersburg, Lanham, Dundalk, Oxon Hill, Rosedale, and Olney, and we have two offices in Baltimore.
