How are sports medicine problems diagnosed?

At your consultation, your doctor will ask you about how the injury occurred and what symptoms you’re experiencing. He will look at your medical history as well and will carry out a physical examination.You might also need to undergo diagnostic tests like X-rays, ultrasound, a CT scan, or an MRI scan. These can confirm a diagnosis and allow your doctor to see the extent of any damage to your bones or other tissues.It’s vital to get sports injuries checked out if they result in limited movement, moderate to severe pain, visible deformity, or a mild condition that doesn’t improve after a few days. If you persevere with training or playing despite the pain and other symptoms, you could make the problem significantly worse. You’re also more likely to develop degenerative problems like osteoarthritis if you don’t take care of your injuries.
