What Is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine is a concentration of medicine dedicated to physical fitness as it pertains to the treatment and prevention of sports and exercise-related injuries. Many aspects of sports medicine are related to the musculoskeletal system, which provides the body with form, stability, and support.
Our team is led by Dr. Todd Olsen, D.O., a doctor of osteopathic medicine. Osteopathic medicine focuses greatly on the musculoskeletal system, providing him with a deeper understanding of how aspects of the body should work together for support and smooth movements.
How Could I Benefit from Sports Medicine?
While sports medicine is largely dedicated to the treatment of injuries, it is also focused on the prevention of those injuries. Common causes of these injuries include:
- Flawed technique
- Improper equipment or equipment use
- Not practicing proper conditioning, such as stretching or warming up
- Poor training or practice
While receiving the proper preventative care advice during a consultation with our team in Oklahoma can be helpful, accidents do happen. If necessary, Dr. Olsen is board-certified and qualified to perform surgery. He or a member of our team may also recommend other treatment options or a physical therapy or rehabilitation plan.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Sports medicine treatments are helpful for injuries, and sports injuries frequently happen in the hip, knee, and shoulder. Common sports-related injuries include:
- Knee injuries
- Shin splints
- Stress fractures or skeletal injuries
- Strains and sprains
Dr. Olsen specializes in injuries related to the knee and shoulder joints. Treatment options will depend on you and your injury, and results from treatment will vary. A consultation with our team in Oklahoma City is the best way to understand how sports medicine could benefit you.
