Every sports fan knows that injuries are a frequent – and heartbreaking – part of many of our favourite games. If you’ve suffered a sports injury in Ontario, you have likely found good doctors who specialize in treating these types of injuries and finding excellent rehabilitation facilities for their clients.

However, sometimes a sports injury can become a chronic problem. Spinal injuries, for example, often lead to ongoing difficulties with back pain. Soft-tissue damage can resist healing or nerve damage can result in persistent numbness or tingling.

If your sports injury isn’t resolving, ask your doctor for a referral to one of Ontario’s excellent pain care clinics. Doctors at these centres are experts in the art of pain management and treatment. They will work with you to ensure that you have the right mix of pain medication and therapies to promote healing and quality of life.

A good pain care clinic will get you back in the game!

Sports Injury Treatment in Ontario

 
Sports injuries often result in chronic pain problems for athletes. Spinal injuries, for example, may be susceptible to reinjury. Soft-tissue injuries often resist healing. And sometimes nerve damage causes recurring pain or tingling.
 
Even after rehabilitation, some athletes have to deal with trying to manage pain. For these patients, consultation with specialists at a pain care clinic may be in order. With a referral from an Ontario doctor, OHIP will usually cover the cost. And these experts have the knowledge necessary to prescribe the right combination of pain medications or to perform medical procedures designed to relieve severe pain.
 

Treatment Options

 
First, doctors at a pain care clinic will assess the quality, location, and intensity of your pain. They will also assess your current treatment regime, including a thorough evaluation of medications. If you are a good candidate for treatment, you and your doctor can work out a treatment plan and schedule your next appointment.
 
Some of the treatments that may be offered include the following:
  • Combination of pain medications. Because pain management specialists know more about pain medication than any other medical professionals, they may want to change the combination of drugs you are taking. It’s also important to ensure that you don’t become dependent on these medications or suffer side effects that cause you distress.
  • Nerve blocks. Often a sports injury will trigger pain signals in certain groups of nerves. A nerve block anaethesizes, reduces inflammation, or damages these nerve groups in order to alleviate the pain.
  • Epidural injections. Spinal injuries can resonate up and down the spinal column. An epidural injection will coat nerves with anti-inflammatory that travels through the spinal fluid.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy. When soft tissue is damaged, the body sends platelets to the site in order to aid healing. This therapy takes platelets from the patient’s own blood, then injects them at high concentrations at the injury site, jump-starting and promoting healing.
