Sports Injury Treatment at New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, NJ
A full range of sports injury treatment options is available at New Jersey Sports Medicine. Trusted for years by active individuals in Freehold, NJ, our accomplished team includes several board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians who are also orthopedic surgeons. We are committed to helping all active individuals – regardless of their age, physical condition, sport, or competitive level – minimize their risk of injury while maximizing their athletic potential.
At New Jersey Sports Medicine in Freehold, we believe that the single best way to avoid sports injuries is to learn and practice prevention strategies. Toward this end, we encourage all athletes to schedule a physical examination prior to the start of each season. Among other things, this provides an opportunity for a physician to detect and address movement limitations and other issues before they become problematic and require sports injury treatment. This is one important step in reducing an athlete’s risk of injury throughout the upcoming year.
New Jersey Sports Medicine offers sports injury treatment services to help our patients address many common sports-related conditions, including those affecting the:
- Shoulder – Rotator cuff tears, labral tears, cartilage damage, SLAP tears, bursitis, and tendonitis
- Elbow – Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and little leaguer’s elbow
- Hip – Labral tears, femoro-acetabular impingement, and bursitis
- Knee – Meniscal tears, ligament (ACL/MCL) tears, cartilage damage, runner’s knee, and jumper’s knee (patellar tendonitis)
- Foot and ankle – Tendonitis and ankle sprains
Through the use of proper techniques (which can vary among sports), an athlete can effectively reduce his or her likelihood of developing these and other injuries. With this goal in mind, the experts at New Jersey Sports Medicine provide athletes with individualized and sport-specific advice. And, in the event that a sports injury occurs and treatment is required, our team can recommend conservative approaches, such as medication, physical therapy, bracing, massage, hyaluronic acid injections, and stem cell therapy, or minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, as appropriate.
