Sports & Workplace Injuries Q&A

Why are sports injuries so common?

Sports injuries are common because physical activity pushes your body, sometimes beyond its capacity. Exercise is good for your health, but you may injure yourself if you do too much too soon or use the wrong equipment. 

Athletes may also develop sports injuries from overuse, a bad fall, or a high-impact collision. Sports injuries may affect any part of the body and include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Concussions
  • Tendonitis
  • Tendon tears

Riverhills Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary practice that includes specialists from many areas of medicine who can manage any sports injury. 

Though you may care for a minor sports injury at home, you should get expert help if your sports injury causes severe pain or fails to improve within a day or two of at-home care.

When do workplace injuries need medical care?

You should get medical care for a workplace injury right away. Early diagnosis and treatment may prevent your injury from getting worse. Riverhills Neuroscience treats workplace injuries.

The specialists at Riverhills Neuroscience review the details of your injury and symptoms. They ask about your medical history and perform a physical exam. 

Riverhills Neuroscience also performs numerous diagnostic tests onsite, including MRI scans (only at the Norwood location), electromyography (EMG) testing, and diagnostic pain injections.

The specialists at Riverhills Neuroscience provide all of these diagnostic tests onsite to ensure you get a diagnosis and treatment plan right away.

What treatments benefit sports injuries?

The treatments you need for your sports or workplace injury depend on injury type, location, and severity. Taking a collaborative approach, the specialists at Riverhills Neuroscience customize your plan for a quick and safe recovery.

Treatment for sports or work injuries may include:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
  • Activity modification
  • Bracing, splinting, or casting
  • Physical therapy
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Joint injections
  • Spinal injections

For spine injuries, early nonsurgical spine care may speed up the healing process.

Some injuries may not heal on their own and require surgery. Riverhills Neuroscience provides postoperative rehabilitation to support your recovery. 

When left untreated, sports injuries may worsen and delay healing.
