What to Do When You Have a Sports Injury
(http://ow.ly/IbDA30mXJwU)

Sports injuries happen most often because of overuse. Your bones, muscles, and joints become fatigued with repeated use and then give out, causing damage. When you have a sports injury, talk to your doctor immediately. If it’s something minor, like strained muscles, he might recommend hot/cold packs and anti-inflammatory pain meds. More serious injuries need to be addressed at the office. Call us when you have sports-related injuries. (http://ow.ly/2wzo30mXJwV)

The Benefits of Knee Arthroscopy
(http://ow.ly/U6Fj30mXJwI)

Knee arthroscopy is one of the most common types of arthroscopic surgery. It involves inserting a tiny scope called an arthroscope, into small incisions on either side of the knee. The surgeon can see the inside of the knee and make repairs using those tiny incisions. There are a ton of benefits to this type of surgery, including smaller scars, less pain, faster healing, and less downtime.
