How to Tell if You Have an Athletic Injury
It is easy to know if you have a serious injury such as a torn meniscus, a knee fracture or an achilles tendon rupture, but sports injuries come in all shapes and sizes. An injured ankle joint might impact your range of motion and need a specialist to start reducing swelling and pain.
If you are dealing with pain when bearing weight on the heel bone, knee joint or patellar tendon, this could mean that you need to just apply ice, but it could also mean you need to get surgery. Getting in front of a sports medicine specialist who understands your injury and what to do next is key.

The medical team also coordinates appointments for the athlete, such as physical therapy and post treatment therapy, to make sure the athlete has made a full recovery before heading back into the field.
