Ask the Doc: Common Injuries in Student Athletes

Fall sports are in full swing for student athletes ranging from Pre-K to college. In this interview from a webinar at WLTX this month, Dr. Justin Knight, orthopaedic surgeon at Southeastern Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine, talks about the most common injuries he sees in young people who play sports – and what we can do to prevent them.

 

Notes from the Doctor:

~Dr. Knight says he treats a wide variety of injuries from strains and sprains to more complex ligament injuries involving the knee, shoulder and ankle.
~For injuries related to overuse, Dr. Knight advises giving it a few weeks to feel better and use anti-inflammatory medications. If it doesn’t improve, call an orthopaedic specialist.
~Injuries that involve a “pop” or “snap” may need more immediate attention.
