It’s easily the most beloved game on the planet. Whether you call it soccer or football, whether you play on a green field or in a gravel lot, it’s a rush of excitement and glory that you and your teammates wouldn’t miss for the world. But if that feeling is replaced by a sharp pain and a loud snap or pop, it’s time to call in a new team: your sports medicine doctors.
Soccer injuries most commonly affect the lower extremities. The intricate footwork, hard sprints and quick pivots of the sport put a lot of pressure on the knees and ankles in particular. However, injuries may just as easily occur in other parts of the body as a result of hard falls. At Andrews Sports Medicine, you’ll team up with nationally recognized sports medicine doctors at the pinnacle of their fields. We offer surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for soccer injuries of all types, including:
- Achilles Tendon Rupture
- Foot and Ankle Fractures
- Sprained Ankle
- Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
- Knee Ligament Injuries, including ACL, PCL and MCL
But your care doesn’t end there. Our sports medicine physicians work extensively in the field of injury prevention research and education. Your orthopaedic treatment plan will include detailed injury prevention counseling to help you avoid future orthopaedic problems, including repeat injuries.
If you’ve been sidelined by soccer injuries, call us today at (205) 939-3699 or request an appointment using our online form. You can also look for a sports medicine doctor that focuses on your specific type of injury using our Physician Finder.
