Your diagnosis depends on the location, type, and severity of the injury. Our medical team will start with a comprehensive physical exam to test your range of motion and look for signs of trauma such as swelling, fracture, tearing, redness, and bruising.
We will ask detailed questions concerning how your injury occurred, whether it just began or came on gradually, and what activities create pain.
Many injuries will require imaging to get a better understanding of how your bones or connective tissues are affected by the trauma. Imaging scans for sports injuries depend on the type of injury and location in your body, they may include x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and ultrasounds.
