Sports and exercise are great for your physical well-being, but sometimes injuries happen. Whether you’re a high school, collegiate, or professional athlete or a weekend warrior, DFP’s sports medicine experts are here to help get you back into action.
When accidents happen, the most important thing to remember is to stop playing or exercising. By continuing, you can cause more harm. Treatment often begins with rest, ice, compression and elevation to relieve pain, reduce swelling and promote healing. Other possible treatments can include pain relievers, long-term demobilization, and sometimes surgery.
