Sports injury is a broad term that is used to describe a type of injury that most commonly occurs during physical activity. Skeletal muscle injuries are the most common injury in sports.
Engaging in regular physical activity improves overall health and well-being; however, there is also the potential for injury to occur. Common sports injuries include muscle strains and sprains, knee injuries (ACL), swollen muscles, Achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, rotator cuff injuries, dislocations, and fractures.
In rare cases, surgery is needed to repair severe injuries; however, most cases resolve with conservative, comprehensive care. Athletes should be advised to stop engaging in activity immediately after suffering an injury and should allow ample time to recover in an effort to reduce the damage and severity of their injury.
The Colorado Pain Care Team has created a special division dedicated to preventing injury, repairing structural wear and tear and accelerated healing by using cutting edge therapy such as stem cell or regenerative therapies. Athletes from amateur to professionals utilize this therapy to enhance their probability of healing and repair.
