SPORTS MEDICINE, Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Services
Sports medicine, also known as sport and exercise medicine (SEM), is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.
At Pinehurst Surgical our orthopaedic team is complemented by several physician assistants who work closely with the doctors to provide a continuum of care, along with our well-trained nurses, certified medical assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers and supporting staff to provide care for a wide range of sports-related conditions.
Our goal is to optimize activity and quality of life for patients both of the physically active and sedentary population encompassing the prevention, diagnosis and intervention of emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions to include:
Concussion – caused by severe head injury where the brain moves violently within the skull so that brain cells all fire at once, much like a seizure.
Muscle cramps – a sudden tight, intense pain caused by a muscle locked in spasm. Muscle cramps are also recognized as an involuntary and forcibly contracted muscle that does not relax.
ACL sprains – The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a ligament involved in knee stabilization. An ACL rupture can occur when the foot is planted and the knee twists to change direction.
ACL tears – The anterior cruciate ligament; one of four major knee ligament necessary for comfortable knee movement, tears, causing major pain and causes the knee to "give out". The knee ACL can tear for a number of reasons.
Ankle sprain – The ligaments that hold the ankle bones in place can easily be overstretched.
Shin splints – The tissue that attaches the muscles of your lower leg to the shin bone may be pulling away from the bone, or it may be inflamed from overuse.
Muscle strains – tears in muscle that cause pain and or loss of function
