Sprains and strains are common injuries that share similar signs and symptoms, but involve different parts of your body. Severe sprains and strains sometimes require surgery to repair torn ligaments, muscles, or tendons. At URCare sports medicine in Miami and Pinecrest, we take pride in effectively and efficiently identifying and treating both sprains and strains.
The approach for patients with acute pain begins by identifying the underlying causes and creating a disease-specific treatment. At URCare, patients are assessed by an experienced sports medicine doctor in Miami for underlying conditions. Acute pain can be controlled using regular evaluations of pain by our physician to monitor treatment effectiveness and determine when changes are warranted.
Dislocations are joint injuries that force the ends of your bones to slip out of position. The cause is often a fall or a blow, sometimes from playing a contact sport. Prompt medical attention from the doctors and staff at the UR Sports Medicine Clinic is needed to position the joint back in place, followed by several weeks of rest to avoid any further complications.
Lower, Mid-Section, Upper Back Pain:
There are any numerous reasons why the upper, middle, and lower back might be in pain. Strain or injury to the muscles and ligaments that support your spine is sometimes the problem. This can come from overuse or a pinched nerve, a fractured vertebra, a herniated disc, or osteoarthritis. An evaluation by a sports medicine doctor at URCare can help you rule out possible causes and efficiently treat back-related pain.
Everyday activities like typing, sports, and accidents can cause wrist injuries and pain. Wrist pain with bruising and swelling can be a sign of injury. When a wrist injury occurs, the exact nature of the injury may not be immediately evident. In most cases, an imaging test such as an x-ray is the only way to confirm whether a wrist is sprained or broken. It is important to begin treating the injured wrist right away to avoid further complications and delayed healing time.
Shoulder Pain & Injuries:
Shoulder injuries can be either acute or chronic, depending on when they are diagnosed and how long the pain or disability has been felt for. Without treatment, shoulder injuries may lead to permanent stiffness or weakness and may result in progressive degeneration of the shoulder joint. Early detection is key to preventing serious shoulder injuries. If you experiencing any shoulder pain, schedule an appointment at our Sports Medicine Clinic in Pinecrest.
Foot & Ankle Injuries:
Injury to any of the ankle and feet bones, ligaments, or tendons can cause pain and loss of movement. A medical evaluation is necessary to diagnose the severity of the injury and determine the appropriate treatment.
About 60% of our body weight is made up of water. If you don’t get enough water, you can become dehydrated. Severe cases of dehydration can cause dizziness, confusion, even seizures, and affect athletic performance. Left untreated, dehydration increases the risk of other heat-related illnesses, including heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heatstroke. At URCare, we administrate patients with electrolytes and IV fluids to combat dehydration and dehydration symptoms.
