What are some common sports injuries?

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Groin pull
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis elbow
  • Concussion
  • Sciatica

Stone Oak Urgent Care & Family Practice treats all types of sports injuries. There’s an X-ray unit and diagnostic lab on-site to ensure a rapid diagnosis and treatment. 

How are sports injuries treated?

Stone Oak Urgent Care & Family Practice takes the holistic approach to sports injuries, which means that Dr. Gogu carefully considers your bodywide health before administering treatment. 

Dr. Gogu is a doctor of osteopathic medicine, which means he has extensive specialized training in osteopathic manipulative medicine. Manipulative medicine techniques include careful stretching, resistance exercises, and light pressure of muscles and joints to diagnose and treat sports injuries and other types of injuries. 

A variety of other treatments are available, including:

  • Injections: corticosteroids or anti-inflammatories
  • Splints to stabilize your injury
  • Casting to set a broken bone
  • Crutches to help you get around

You might also need other treatments, such as short-term oral pain relievers. As you heal, Dr. Gogu may recommend physical therapy to help you recover your full strength and function in a safe way. 

What other types of injuries do you treat?

Stone Oak Urgent Care & Family Practice diagnoses and treats on-the-job injuries and injuries after motor vehicle collisions, in addition to all other kinds of non life-threatening injuries. Dr. Gogu uses the extensive on-site equipment like X-ray unit and laboratory to efficiently diagnose your injury and formulate the right recovery plan. 

Stone Oak Urgent Care & Family Practice is accustomed to working with patients of all types following injuries. Dr. Gogu can keep track of your injury, maintaining all the documentation you’ll need to file a claim with workmans’ comp or another type of insurance. 

How soon do I have to get sports medicine care after an injury?

Generally, the faster you get treatment, the better your chance for full recovery. It’s very important that you don’t try to keep going after you’re injured. Playing through the pain could easily turn a fairly minor injury like a strain into a severe ligament rupture, so don’t risk it. As soon as you feel pain, stop and rest the affected body part until you see Dr. Gogu.
