If you or your child sustains an injury during athletic activity, it is important to assess the severity of the injury. Severe sports injuries that include extreme pain, numbness, swelling, and an inability to put weight on the injured area should receive emergency medical care immediately. For all other injuries, it is important to rest, ice the injured area, use compression, and elevate the injury above your heart. For further steps to recovery, you can work with our sports medicine team.
