#1: Knee Injuries
Outdoor sports and activities are popular in the summer. Walking, running, jumping and playing sports can sometimes lead to knee pain or an injury.
Our specialists see all types of knee injuries, including sprains and strains, tendonitis, ligament tears and fractures. Our specialists obtain a medical history and perform a physical examination to diagnose knee injuries. If X-rays are needed to assist with a diagnosis, we have onsite X-ray to make this process faster and more convenient.
#2: Back and Neck Injuries
More time outdoors calls for more use of the back and neck and overuse and lifting heavy objects are two main causes of back and neck injuries and pain.
Our specialists are able to diagnosis all acute and chronic back and neck injuries, including sprains and strains, herniated discs, osteoarthritis, and spinal stenosis. They prescribe treatment options that decrease pain and treat the condition that is causing it.
#3: Ankle Injuries
Ankle injuries frequently happen in the summer as we spend more time walking to our favorite parks, beaches or restaurants.
