Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine Doctor in South Austin

Injuries such as torn ligaments, tendons, and muscles can occur while playing sports like basketball or softball; these injuries often require surgery to repair and reattach the damaged structures to enable you to return to athletic activities. Because of their wide range of motion, the knee and the shoulder are two of the most frequently injured joints in sports.

Sports medicine utilizes treatments such as physical therapy, alternative training, medication, and sometimes surgery, including arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgery that can lead to a faster recovery. After surgery or injury, physical therapy can help you return to your sport of choice more quickly.

Dr. Joel H. Hurt of Texas Orthopedics is fellowship trained in sports medicine, and he is an avid biker and exerciser himself. Whether you’re a professional or an amateur athlete, if you’ve experienced a sports-related injury, Dr. Hurt will discuss the optimal treatment to get you back into sporting form.
