How To Treat Chronic Pain From Sports Injuries

The long-term effects of serious sports injuries are diverse, but the most common side effect that occurs is chronic pain. People who have suffered physical sports-related traumas may experience mild, moderate, or severe pain, and this can affect all aspects of their lives. Chronic pain often means taking time off from work, less participation in family life, and even the loss of independence when performing basic daily tasks.

The fact is, many people suffer from pain resulting from sports injuries. If you have been injured while playing sports, the doctors at Advanced Pain Medical Group can offer life-changing solutions for your unique condition. With locations in Burbank, West Hills, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, and Oxnard, we are proud to be the leading pain management specialists in the Los Angeles, CA area.

Common Side Effects of Sports Injuries

Our highly specialized team of physicians offers years of training and practical experience treating patients with sports-related injuries and pain. Whether you are suffering from an ACL tear or groin strain, a shin splint or sciatica, the one thing that all sports injuries have in common is the resulting pain. Some people are fortunate to have that pain subside naturally, but for most patients, additional treatment is needed to help alleviate the pain incurred from sports accidents.

Along with chronic pain, other side effects of sports injuries include decreased movement and motor ability, an inability to participate in sports or complete regular daily activities, and even depression or anxiety. Our doctors are sensitive to these side effects, and are here to offer solutions.
