Training Tips for Injury Prevention

When a Sport Medicine Doctor can help
You should call a Physician if you experience the following:
· You have severe pain, or if pain persists for more then 2 weeks in a joint or bone.
· Pain radiates to another area of the body.
· You have ‘point tenderness.’ That is, you can cause pain by pressing on a specific area, but pain is not produced at the same point on the other side of the body.
· You have any injury to a joint that produces significant swelling. If left untreated, joint injuries can become permanent.
· You cannot move the injured part.
· There is persistent numbness, tingling, or weakness in the injured area.
· You have an infection with pus, red streaks, a fever, or swollen lymph nodes.
