Sports-related injuries need quick, careful evaluation and treatment, whether you’re a professional, student or recreational athlete.
Sports injury evaluations can be initiated by your coach or doctor, another health care professional, a family member or yourself. During the evaluation, an athletic trainer will assess your injury and any need for further treatment. For treatment to begin, a physician referral is required.
If you’ve been injured while playing a sport and you have swelling around a joint, can’t move a joint or have decreased motion in a joint, have a bony deformity, can’t walk without limping, or have extensive bruising–seek medical attention quickly.
