Sports Injuries

Sport injuries can range from mild to severe. Common sports injuries and conditions include contusions, cramps, concussions, hernias, sprains, strains and fractures. They occur in all parts of the body and a orthopedic surgeon should evaluate the injury to determine the best treatment and rehabilitation.

Among teenagers that participate in high school sports, injuries occur at about the same rate as pro athletes. Injuries that affect this group, however, are often different from those that affect adult athletes. Growth plate injuries and spondylolisthesis, stress fractures of the spine, are just two injuries most prevalent in high school athletes.
