Ankle and Knee Injuries in Sports

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Schools are back in session and that means kids athletics are here again as well. Unfortunately, what also comes along with sports are injuries. We have experience evaluating both kids and adults for sports injuries involving both the upper and lower extremities.

In football season we see a significant number of ankle and knee injuries as well as foot injuries.

It is always best when you are concerned that your child has pain in the knee, ankle or foot after a sports injury to have it evaluated. If they have swelling of the area and difficulty putting weight on the leg this could signify a broken bone. Kids also have growth plates, areas in the bone where growth is occurring. These are very susceptible to injury and damage if injuries go undiagnosed. The outcome can be abnormal growth of this bone following an injury.

Do not wait for pain in an extremity to go away if your child has difficulty putting weight on it. Come to us and let one of our physicians examine the joint and decide whether an x-ray is necessary. We have digital x-ray on site and our physicians have extensive experience reading these x-rays. If there is a fracture or concern about a broken bone we will place the patient in a splint to keep the injury safely immobilized until further specialist evaluation can be obtained.

With locations in Spring Hill and New Port Richey we have you covered.
