Board-Certified Physicians Practicing Orthopedic Medicine in Freehold, NJ
At New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, NJ, we practice orthopedic medicine, which focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions. These injuries can result from a number of causes, including direct and indirect trauma, overuse and repetitive stress, and poor body mechanics. Because sports are all about movement, it’s probably not surprising that athletes are especially susceptible to these types of injuries, and some of the hardest hit areas of the body are the joints. The goal of orthopedic medicine is to keep active bodies in motion.
When practicing orthopedic medicine, the team of sports medicine specialists at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold uses the latest conservative and surgical techniques to help our patients heal quickly and comfortably. Some of the most common joints and conditions that can be addressed with orthopedic medicine include the:
- Shoulder – Rotator cuff tears, labral tears, and damage to the ring of cartilage that surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint, such as a SLAP tear, bursitis, or tendonitis
- Elbow – Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and little leaguer’s elbow
- Hip – Labral tears, femoro-acetabular impingement, and bursitis
- Knee – Torn meniscus, torn ligament (ACL/MCL), and cartilage damage
- Foot and ankle – Tendonitis and ankle sprains
At New Jersey Sports Medicine, we firmly believe that sports, exercise, and general physical activity are essential to good health and overall well-being. Therefore, it’s important to not allow an injury to affect an athlete’s ability to stay active or diminish his or her overall quality of life. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of orthopedic medicine services. Our goal is to provide personalized treatment and rehabilitation to restore pain-free function. To do so, we emphasize nonsurgical therapies over surgery whenever possible.
Of course, preventing accidents before they happen – both in sports and in general life – is ideal. But, when an injury strikes, you’ll want a trusted, sports medicine-trained physician who practices orthopedic medicine on your side to provide appropriate care for your unique condition.
