Common Injuries

Work hard. And smart, too.

We want you strong, fast, and agile. Not injured. We can help.

Accidents happen to the best of us. But, there are many sports injuries we can avoid, too. Poor training techniques and improper gear can cause injuries. Some people get hurt because they are not not fully trained. Inflexibility, muscle imbalance, and overuse can also lead to injuries.

We help athletes prevent injuries through both The EDGE and our athletic training services at area schools. We also help athletes find the best and fastest path to getting back to their sport.

injury smThere are many types of sports injuries to the bones, muscle and other tissues in the lower and upper bodies as well as to the back and head. Here are a few of the most common:

If you get hurt, stop playing. Continuing to play or exercise can cause more harm. Injuries often respond well to the RICE treatment (Rest, Ice, Compression, s Elevation). RICE relieves pain, reduces swelling, and speeds healing. Even if you need more advanced care, RICE can help at the onset of injury. Other possible treatments include pain relievers and keeping the injured area from moving. Many injuries can benefit greatly from rehab therapy. Sometimes they also require surgery.

If you’re injury limits your mobility or your ability to play your sport, or if your injury is persistent or nagging, the trained professionals at the Orthopedic Institute are here to help. Call 608-342-4748 for an appointment.

Your injury and recovery are important to us. We will get you in on a priority basis, evaluate and diagnose your injury, and help you find the fastest path to getting you back in the game.
