    NORCROSS, GA, January 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- OrthoAtlanta would like to discuss some of the most common injuries that can result from a football game, whether you are a professional or tossing the ball around with friends.

Wrist tendonitis is a painful condition that can develop either from an arm injury or simply overusing your arm. If you feel a swelling and pain in your wrist, it may be the result of an irritation of the tissues around the tendons of your thumb. Treatments, in addition to plenty of rest, can include physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medication.

Injuries of the posterior and anterior cruciate ligaments (PCL and ACL) are two very common results of a rough football game. If you hurt your knee and you hear a popping noise, you probably have a PCL or ACL injury. The first thing you should do, then, is to rest, elevate your leg, and ice and compress your knee. Then, seek out an Atlanta physical therapist to help yourself to heal as quickly as possible.

"Football is the perfect way to get outside and enjoy the crisp fall air with family and friends, but unfortunately it is always going to be a risky sport," explains Dr. Richard Johnston, Atlanta orthopedic surgeon at OrthoAtlanta. "Play hard, but make sure that if you do injure yourself, you take care of the problem quickly, so you can get back in the game."

OrthoAtlanta have many years of experience in Atlanta sports medicine, and will be there for you this football season. With a wide range of treatments and therapy their expert team can help you stay active and performing at your very best.
