Knee injuries are by far the most common problems we treat at APMI Ortho Sports. From mild injuries like tendonitis and iliotibial syndrome to more serious ones like an ACL or Meniscus tear, our knee specialists have seen and treated it all.
STRAINS AND SPRAINS
Every athlete experiences a strain or sprain at one point or another. A sprain occurs when a ligament tears or overstretches, while a strain develops due to damage that’s sustained by your muscles or tendons. Whether your injury is minor or severe, you can rest assured that our sports doctors will treat the issue and get you back on your feet as quickly as possible. With our non-surgical philosophy, we explore all reasonable options to keep you active in sport.
If your sport requires repetitive overhead movements – such as swimming, tennis and baseball – your shoulder is at risk. At APMI Ortho Sports, our shoulder specialists are fully qualified to diagnose, treat and prevent shoulder injuries for athletes of all levels, so our patients in Chevy Chase and surrounding areas can stay in the game.
Tennis elbow and golfers elbow are extremely common overuse sports injuries. They cause pain around the elbow joint and are generally seen in athletes who participate in sports that require repetitive wrist extension and twisting, such as tennis, golf, and baseball. Fortunately, our sports medicine provider Dr. Christina Cervieri is highly skilled in treating these conditions, so you can continue performing at your optimal level.
