You don’t have to play at the professional level to need a good, local sports medicine practice. In fact, approximately 3.5 million sports injuries per year are suffered by our youngest athletes – those under the age of 14. So, whether your children are involved in rec league or school sports, or whether you, yourself, are an amateur athlete, make sure you have a Houston sports medicine physician you can call when you need one. Here are a few of the sports medicine services offered at Houston Institute for Sports Medicine and Orthopedics.
Total Hip Replacement
Whether you suffer from osteoarthritis or were injured on the playing field, hip pain may be a part of your daily life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Advanced surgical treatments at Houston Institute for Sports Medicine and Orthopedics are helping hundreds of Houstonians get back up and on their feet again.
Total Knee Replacement
Knee pain is one of the most commonly reported types of pain. In fact, a recent National Health Interview Survey reported that 18% of U.S. adults have experienced knee pain in the last 30 days. Knee pain can be caused by osteoarthritis, sports injury or trauma, and even obesity. (It might surprise you to learn that two out of three obese individuals develop symptomatic osteoarthritis at some point in their life.) Learn more below about the causes of knee pain and the treatment options available to you.
Did you know that the body has 206 bones, each of which plays an important role in providing structure and stability? As an intricate network of bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons, a stress fracture or injury to one bone can cause pain and misalignment in other areas of the body, as well. Dr. Rosemary Buckle of Houston Institute for Sports Medicine and Orthopedics treats adult and pediatric fractures with a holistic mindset that aims to get you back to the activities you love.
