The orthopedic physicians on the medical staff at Baylor Waxahachie have extensive experience working with athletes at the high school, college and semi-pro levels. They can treat most sports injuries here locally, especially those affecting the knees and shoulders.
From ACL reconstruction and meniscus repairs to rotator cuff injuries and routine fracture care, the sports medicine team at Baylor Waxahachie can help get athletes back in the game.
Athletes ask more of their bodies than the average person. So an injury comes with higher stakes. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can help athletes return to full function as soon as possible. On the other hand, continuing to train through an untreated injury can cause further problems.
Evaluation by an orthopedist experienced in sports medicine can identify injuries that won’t simply get better with time. For example, is your knee just strained, or is the pain caused by a torn meniscus? Did you sprain your ankle, or do you have a hairline fracture?
After a sports injury, it may take an X-ray, MRI or other imaging study to determine if the injury is only a strain or sprain, or if it is something more serious, such as a fracture or torn ligament or meniscus that could lead to future problems if it is not addressed.
