Professional sports figures are consistently reaching new heights in their professional careers. With each passing year, new records are shattered and the human body is pushed to its limits. Everyday athletes follow suit by pushing themselves harder, choosing rigorous training patterns, and taking their diets to a new level. Despite the meticulous care and training that athletes take, they experience musculoskeletal injuries.
Pain Specialists are to athletes, just as Cardiologists are to those who suffer with cardiovascular disease. Pain Specialists have specific training in evaluating and treating the injuries and ailments of athletes. In addition to treating athletic injuries, the Pain Specialist is skilled in aiding the athlete in injury prevention.
It has been said that pain management care most closely relates to the needs of the athlete because special attention is given to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves. The focus of pain management is to treat the body as an integrated system, ensuring that all parts of the musculoskeletal system are working in harmony and in their healthiest, most natural state.
Professional athletes see such a great value in pain management treatment that they regularly have pain management wellness visits to prevent injuries. If you are an athlete or weekend warrior, pain management care will enable you to reach peak performance, without breaking yourself. Make an appointment to see our Pain Specialists today!
