Sports Medicine

The Arizona Specialty Hospital team offers some of the latest treatment options for sports injuries. Many conditions can be managed with simple treatment plans, medication, and physical therapy; however, some injuries may require surgery. Our primary goal is to get you back on your feet and back in the game.

Sport medicine conditions may include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament tear (ACL tear)
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Meniscus tear
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Athletes ask more of their bodies than the average person. So, an injury comes with higher stakes. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can help athletes return to full function as soon as possible.

On the other hand, continuing to train through an untreated injury can cause further problems. Evaluation by an orthopedist experienced in sports medicine can help identify injuries that won’t simply get better with time.

For example:

  • Is your knee just strained, or is the pain caused by a torn meniscus?
  • Did you sprain your ankle, or do you have a hairline fracture?

After a sports injury, it may take an X-ray, MRI or other imaging studies to determine if the injury is only a strain or sprain, or if it is something more serious, such as a fracture or torn ligament or meniscus that could lead to future problems if not addressed.

Talk with an experienced team who can diagnose and recommend options to help you continue your active life.
