Finding Healing in Sports Medicine
Spring in North Carolina is an exciting time. As the weather gets warmer, people begin to move outside more. Little league sport seasons begin, adults tend to take advantage of better weather by exercising outdoors, and in our city of Fayetteville, NC, the Soldiers of the 82nd Airborne continue their regular training schedule, jumping out of the Carolina sky. While most residents welcome the warmer weather by spending more time being physically active outside. This increase in physical activity means an increased chance of sports injuries. When these injuries happen, the team at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is here to help you heal.
The highly trained staff at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are experts in treating any sports related injury that may occur. While some may think that sports medicine and rehabilitation applies only to the more serious sports injuries, like a torn ACL or MCL, Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine also treats more common sports injuries, such as bone fractures or muscle sprains. Our sports medicine doctors offer treatment in the form of medical consultation and advice, orthopedic surgery, physical therapy and more.
The most important element to healing your body after a sports injury is to seek the proper medical treatment before the injury progresses. Waiting until an injury becomes worse than it initially was only complicates the healing process. Many patients could avoid delaying their healing if they would seek out medical attention early on. If you or a loved one has sustained a sports injury and has severe pain, numbness, significant swelling, and/or cannot bear weight on the affected area, give Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine a call. If you believe that the orthopedic sports injury is an urgent matter, our office located at 4140 Ferncreek Drive offers urgent care appointments on Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm, and walk-in appointments from 5pm to 7pm and on Saturdays from 10am to 1pm.
At Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we hope that you will be physically active this spring and enjoy the warmer weather. However, if you experience a sports injury and need orthopedic care, we are here to help you heal as quickly as possible.
