Why is age-appropriate care for sports injuries essential?
Daniel J. Gurley, MD, Orthopedic Surgery, answered on behalf of Overland Park Regional Medical CenterOne of the benefits of sports medicine doctors is they have the training and experience to know when an athlete should continue playing versus when they need to be removed from competition for rest, diagnostic tests or further care.
How does flaccid paralysis affect the body?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Flaccid paralysis can be painful, and typically the pain is centered in your arms, legs, or back. If you have this condition, you would feel extreme weakness in your limbs. It could also affect the muscles in your lungs. Flaccid paralysis is often seen after strokes (CVA’s).
When should a young athlete see a sports medicine physician?
Daniel J. Gurley, MD, Orthopedic Surgery, answered on behalf of Overland Park Regional Medical CenterIt’s not uncommon for young athletes to experience stiffness and soreness. However, when a young player starts opting out of playing, avoids putting weight on the injury or stops sleeping because of pain, a doctor’s visit is in order.
