Basketball is a game of speed, agility and precision — not to mention strategy. You’ve always got to be one step ahead, both physically and mentally. To be at your best, you need to pay attention to the signals on the court — including the signals that your body gives you when something isn’t right.
Basketball injuries tend to strike the knees and ankles as a result of hard sprinting, landings and quick pivots, although finger injuries caused by impact are also common. These injuries are usually caused by trauma, but knee injuries may sometimes start with a mild strain that escalates quickly.
At Andrews Sports Medicine, our sports medicine physicians provide state-of-the-art surgical and nonsurgical treatment for orthopaedic conditions affecting basketball players of all ages, including:
- Sprained Ankle
- Knee Ligament Injuries, including ACL, PCL and MCL
- Meniscus Tear
We’re also at the forefront of sports injury prevention research and education. Each of our patients receives injury prevention counseling as part of their treatment plan to help protect them in the future and reduce injury recurrence.
