Nonsurgical Musculoskeletal Treatment in Boerne
The sports doctors at Sports and Family Medicine in Boerne specialize in nonsurgical musculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment. If a physical examination doesn’t elucidate the problem, our sports medicine physicians will undergo diagnostic studies to pinpoint the problem. Treatment options then range from exercise and stretching to injections with anesthetic or anti-inflammatory medications.
X-rays, Casting and Fracture Care in Boerne
When you or your child experiences a broken bone, it’s a painful experience. In our Boerne sports clinic, our sports doctors can conduct x-rays, provide splints, mold a cast, and even provide a surgical referral if necessary. Most of the time, fractures and breaks don’t require surgical referrals, but every case is different, and if it turns out that you do, our sports medicine physicians will walk you through it.
Ultrasound Guided Injections in Boerne
There are some treatments for arthritis, tendonitis, or other joint and muscle pain that involve injections. These injections can be done in various ways, but our sports medicine professionals will, in some cases, use ultrasound to guide the injections. The benefit of this practice is to see the needle as it goes into the skin to pinpoint the correct area and ensure the injection reaches it. The accuracy of ultrasound guided injections is much greater than injections done blindly.
Viscosupplements in Boerne
The sports medicine physicians at Sports and Family Medicine in Boerne sometimes use viscosupplements to treat arthritis. Viscosupplements are injections consisting of hyaluronic acid, which is part of your native joint fluid. Examples of viscosupplements are Synvisc, Synvisc One, Hyalgan, and Euflexxa. These supplements are used in the treatment of arthritis because they lubricate the affected joint and temper the friction between adjacent tissues within the joint. Viscosupplement injections can provide relief from arthritis symptoms anywhere from several months up to a year.
Regenerative Medicine in Boerne
Sports and Family Medicine in Boerne practices regenerative medicine, like stem cell therapy, to grow new cells or tissues to reestablish function in your muscles and tendons. Our sports medicine physicians are licensed and trained to perform these treatments and will run tests to see if this is the right solution for you. These practices are most commonly used in patients who experience arthritis, muscle injuries, or tendon injuries.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatments in Boerne
If you experience arthritis, tendonitis, or some tendon injury, the sports doctors at Family and Sports Medicine in Boerne might recommend platelet-rich plasma treatment. This treatment is done to accelerate healing in affected tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. This doesn’t interfere with your body’s natural way of healing; it just gives it more material to do the job. This sports injury treatment may be what our sports medicine physicians recommend for a speedy recovery.
Young Athlete Care in Boerne
A child’s body is different from an adult’s in that it is still growing and changing constantly. Therefore, the professionals at our sports clinic treat young athletes differently than adult patients. A big difference in children is that they have open growth plates and are therefore susceptible to conditions like Osgood Schlatter’s disease, little leaguer’s elbow, little leaguer’s shoulder, and Sever’s disease, which are all caused by an injury to an open growth plate. We treat these conditions and clear players for sports participation again, but only when it’s safe.
Sports Physicals in Boerne
From little league to the professional league, and every league in between, our sports medicine professionals can conduct a physical exam to make sure you’re in the right physical condition to participate. We’ll test reflexes and make sure your bones and muscles are up to the challenge. If you need a sports physical for any reason, our sports doctors in Boerne are available to do your check-up to clear you to play.
