Athletes put their bodies through rigorous training and often push their bodies to the max. Over the years, the body can start to wear down, casing aches and pains, and other ailments that can decrease an athlete’s performance and ability to enjoy their sport. Sports-related injuries occur often, leaving an athlete in a difficult position to sometimes leave behind the sport they love. At OC Medical we believe that age is just a number! We have effective sports medicine treatments that will help to improve mobility, decrease pain, and bring your body back to its optimal performance level.
Sports Related Injuries
Did you know that approximately 775,000 children end up in the ER annually with a sports-related injury? Many of these children do need medical care, but the large majority need simply modality changes to prevent additional injuries, and to help treat their existing injury. Quite often younger sports patients will have too much stress placed on the spine, which can lead to serious problems as they grow up.
We treat patients with a variety of sports related injuries. Here are some of the most common injuries we treat:
- Neck Pain

- Ankle Sprain
- Knee Pain
- Joint Pain
- Disc Injuries
