You Work Hard | You Play Harder
Message from J. Scott Quinby MD.
I have been active my entire life, and I personally know what it feels like when an injury holds you back from enjoying life with friends and family. We all get older, and while our mind would like us to think we’re in our 20’s our bodies tell us otherwise. Sometimes this means we hurt our ACL playing town-league basketball or soccer. Maybe we tear our already frail rotator cuff from years of baseball while throwing a full YETI cooler in the back of the truck for a day at the lake. I see stories like this all the time, and it’s very satisfying to be able to help adults deal with these issues, and get them back to living a fully active life. I like to think that you have a lot left in the tank and this is just a short pit stop.
Our 3-Step Process
Discuss Options & Form a Care Plan
Common Problems Seen & Treated
The most common knee injury we see as a result of football, soccer, cheerleading, etc is a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) which is a key ligament that helps stabilize your knee. These tears are often the result of a sudden stops or changes in direction.
We see an array of fractures, but we see larger volumes of fractures around the ankles, wrists, and forearms. These issues are often a result of engagement in recreational sports, falling off a ladder while working in the yard, or a careless slip down stairs.
Shoulder & Elbow Issues
We see a variety of patients with injuries to the shoulder and elbow joints. Sports such as volleyball, tennis, and baseball are common culprits in causing excessive wear & tear to these joints over time. Strenuous exercise such as crossfit is another common cause of injuries to the shoulder.
Arthritis in Adults
When we think of arthritis we often think of adults 65 and older. Unfortunately, it is very common for young adults to experience painful and debilitation arthritis much earlier in life. This can be very frustrating as the pain can significantly restrict our ability to enjoy life’s experiences. We aim to help treat and alleviate arthritis in our younger patients so they can fully engage in a pain free life.
