POINT LONSDALE MEDICAL GROUP WELCOMES YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO OUR PRACTICE

 

 

Musculoskeletal Conditions and Sports Medicine

The doctors at Point Lonsdale Medical Group can assess and manage your musculoskeletal or sports injury issues with referral for imaging if appropriate, and to Allied Health Professionals or Sports Medicine Physicians as required.

 

Several of our GP’s have a special interest in sports medicine and the treatment of injuries. With associated working commitments with the Geelong Football Club and Sports Medicine Clinics, our doctors can provide extensive support for athletes.

 

A musculoskeletal injury can affect your muscles, bones or the connective tissues that join them together. The injury could happen in any part of the body that is being twisted, stretched or put under strain while you are exercising. However, the symptoms will usually be similar. Pain is the most common problem, but you may also notice swelling, bruising, tenderness, stiffness or a restricted range of motion in the affected area.

 

Common types of musculoskeletal sports injuries include:

  • Muscle strains or tears

  • Stress fractures and broken bones

  • Inflammation causing issues such as shin splints

  • Sprains or torn ligaments

If you are in severe pain or you suspect a broken bone, you should go to the hospital for investigation.
