TYLER, TX, August 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- East Texas students and parents are getting ready to begin another school year. This means competitive sports will be in full swing throughout the year. Participation in organized sports continues to rise each year in the Tyler, Texas area. Unfortunately, this increase in participation has also led to a rise in acute and chronic youth sports injuries. If a young athlete becomes injured this school year, Pain Recovery Center of Tyler is available to treat a number of common sports injuries and help return athletes to the game they love.
School-related competitive sports provide a number of physical and social benefits, but they also present the risk of sports injuries. It is estimated more than 3.5 million children under the age of 14 years receive medical treatment each year for a sports injury, and high school athletes account for approximately 2 million youth sports injuries per year. The most commonly diagnosed injuries include ligament sprains, muscle strains, overuse injuries and growth plate injuries.
Prevention is key when it comes to many youth sports injuries, but preventing an injury is not always possible. If an injury occurs in a young athlete, it is highly recommended they receive medical attention from a physician immediately since their bodies are still growing and developing. Treatment for youth sports injuries varies depending on the injury. Many sports injuries can be easily treated with the RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) method. In more severe injuries, pain management injections or physical therapy may be prescribed by a physician to alleviate symptoms and aid in healing.
Pain Recovery Center of Tyler is a multidisciplinary clinic that strives to provide chronic pain relief with over 15 safe and effective pain management techniques. The goal and mission at Pain Recovery Center of Tyler is to help patients overcome pain using the most modern and conservative pain management techniques available today. Our team works daily with attorneys, chiropractors, employers and insurance adjusters, as well as workers' compensation cases.
