Any injury you get while being physically active is considered a sports injury. It can happen while you’re playing a sport like basketball, baseball, hockey, or soccer. But you can also suffer a sports injury from dancing or taking long walks or running in the park. You can even get injured in the gym if you don’t follow the proper technique.
In the United States, it’s estimated that more than 8.6 million people complain of pain due to a sports injury every year. At least a third of those hurt suffered the injury while actively playing a sport. All sports injuries happen quickly, with either a hit or a wrong turn causing the damage. When you’re hurt in a sports injury, the most likely areas you feel pain involve your joints, such as your:
Some injuries can serious — like a head injury that requires immediate medical attention. No matter what your injury, seek out the best sports medicine doctor, one like Dr. Amr Hosny, to give you a full medical checkup. New York Pain Care has top pain management doctors who specialize in treating sports injuries. These physicians are available for consultation at locations from Manhattan to Bergen County, Morris County, and Union County in New Jersey.
When a fast-moving ball or another player hits you, you may be injured. In some sports, like football or hockey, you run the danger of being hit by someone awkwardly as they try to stop you from reaching your goal. Other sports, like basketball or soccer, call for quick changes of direction, which can twist your knee, foot, ankle, or hip.
Another way to get a sports injury is by overdoing it when you exercise. If you suddenly increase the duration or speed of a run or do more sets in the gym without warming up, you may end up being diagnosed with Achilles tendonitis, a patellofemoral pain syndrome, or elbow tendonitis. Other ways you can get injured include:
Sports injuries usually start with sudden, severe pain, accompanied by swelling and tenderness. You may not even be able to move the injured part of your body. You may have a bone or joint out of place if it’s a break, fracture, or dislocation. Quick action is necessary when the injuries involve your head or spine. Your specialty-trained sports medicine physicians at New York Pain Care have seen it all and can quickly diagnose and administer the right treatment. Sports injuries can show up as:
The first thing Dr. Amr Hosny may suggest is to ice the injured area to keep the swelling down. You may need some pain medications as well. If possible, elevating the injury, like your leg or hand, is always recommended while you sit or sleep. Your sports medicine physician may also put the injured part of the body in a cast, sling, splint, or brace.
But you can always expect prompt sports injury treatment once your doctor reaches a diagnosis. Most sports injuries require an examination, a description of how the injury occurred, and imaging tests before your doctor can determine the source of your pain. Once there’s a diagnosis, your treatment options may include one or more modalities, including:
The pain management specialists at New York Pain Care prefer non-surgical, interventional treatments. The more serious your injury, the more invasive the treatment may be.

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.Narendra G. ★★★★★

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen.

I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
