You’re fast. You’re tough. You’re a lacrosse player. No other game tests your skill quite the same way. But sometimes, even the toughest athletes can push too hard — or take an accidental slash to the head. When that happens, don’t make the mistake of sticking it out until the injury gets worse. It’s better to step off the field and get checked out.
Some of the most common lacrosse injuries are caused by trauma, often to the hands, arms, shoulders or ankles. Overuse injuries may be caused by the quick pivots and hard throws that characterize the game. At Andrews Sports Medicine, you’ll work with leading sports medicine doctors to combat your injury and get back on top. We offer advanced surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for lacrosse injuries, including:
