Sports injuries aren’t just for high school, college and professional athletes. “Boomeritis” is a new name for adult sports injuries. And we all know Baby Boomers never go “silently” into any new phase of life.

Baby Boomers are the first generation to try to stay active on an aging frame, resulting in a dramatic increase in musculoskeletal ailments and injuries. Going “all out” and ignoring pain can no longer be the exercise pattern of physically active boomers.

There are many new treatments for shoulder, elbow, knees and hips that could help you so don’t wait for treatment if pain persists or you can no longer participate in your favorite sports or exercise without pain.

Middle and high school athletes can obtain injury care and treatment at Henry County Sports Medicine also located at Forest Ridge Medical Pavilion. HCSM also provides Performance Enhancement training to reduce injuries and improve performance.
