Sports and injuries pretty much go hand-in-hand, even if we don’t want them to. While everyone wishes they could run, swim, and play while constantly and completely pain-free, this just isn’t a realistic wish. If you do happen to be experiencing some nagging pain or think you seriously injured yourself, you should turn to the sports medicine physicians at Premier Bone & Joint Centers. Our satellite clinic is conveniently located in the Gillette, Wyoming, area, allowing us to serve residents from this and surrounding communities.
Trust Our Team for Your Injuries
Maybe you spend your weekends hitting the tennis courts or hiking every peak across Wyoming. However you keep active, the Premier Bone & Joint Centers team wants to help you continue doing it pain-free. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors can treat virtually any type of sports injury, from sprains and strains to bone fractures. Depending on the nature and severity of your ailment, we may treat it using:
A number of injuries can be treated with physical therapy, especially if they were caused from joint or muscle overuse. Physical therapy is also generally used as a secondary treatment after surgery or illness.
Sometimes a prescription of NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can relieve some pain and swelling, and other times an option like steroid injections can provide you with the relief you need.
We generally try to use surgery as a last-resort treatment option, unless of course you suffer a severe break or a rupture. If you do qualify for surgery, you can feel confident having the procedure done by one of our highly trained and experienced orthopedic surgeons.
