Athletic Injuries

It is commonly known that athletes suffer from shoulder, knee, wrist ankle and elbow injuries more frequently than most individuals. The increased exposure of athletics and the increased forces that the body experiences during sports place athletes at higher risk for injury. Some sports activities result in overuse type injuries while other sports result in more acute, traumatic type injuries. You can trust Dr. Parikh and his team to make the proper diagnosis and to administer timely treatment so that you the athlete can return to your sport quickly and safely. Our clinic is known throughout the harnett county for our dedication, commitment, and experience in sports medicine. In addition to general sports medicine problems, Dr. Parikh has a substantial expertise in treating joint replacement..

Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic injuries are among the most common of all injury types. Most of us will at some point experience some type traumatic injury to our shoulder, knee, wrist, ankle, hip or elbow. Traumatic injuries can occur at any given time from sports, accidents, or falls. The types of traumatic events we routinely see include simple slips and falls such as those on the ice, snow or steps, collisions from sports such as football or any contact sports, crashes, bicycle wrecks, and motor vehicle accidents.

    Knee injuries: ACL repair (Anterior cruciate ligament,) Articular Cartilage Chondral, ,Meniscus Tear Repair, ACL Knee Injuries, Chondral Knee Injuries, Meniscus Knee Injuries, Patellofemoral Pain sydrome
    Shoulder injuries: AC Joint Injury, Dislocated Shoulder, bicep tendon Injuries, Rotal Cuff Injuries, Fracture of the Shoulder, Arthritis of the Shoulder
    Elbow injuries: Arthritis of the Elbow, Bicep Tear, Bicep Tendon Tear or Rupture, Lateral Epicondylitis (tnnis elbow), Medial Epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow), Ulnar collateral Ligament, Ulnar Nerve Entrapment (CTS)
    Wrist injuries: Sprain, strain, tendonitis, arthritis, gout, cyst, CTR and fractures
    Hip injuries: Fractures, arthritis, pain, dislocation, orsteoporoasis, bursitis
    Ankle injuries: Sprain, strains, fractures, tibial, fibalus, tallus, medial, posterior and lateral, tendon injury
    Back injuries: Pain, Strain, sprain, ruptured or herniated discs

These types of injuries always require skilled orthopaedic care and often require urgent or even emergent surgery to allow one to have a full functional recovery. Some of these injuries can be seen in the office; others will need to be evaluated more urgently in the emergency room. Having been actively involved in covering the on-call, emergent orthopaedic in Harnett Health Hospital and WakeMed Cary Dr. Parikh and his team have extensive experience treating fractures and other traumatic injuries and can care for the entire spectrum of orthopaedic injuries from those that are relatively minor to those that are life or limb threatening.

Arthritis and Degenerative Conditions

Arthritic and degenerative conditions can affect any joint in the body, Dr. Parikh and his team have experience with the shoulder, knee, wrist, elbow, and hip. When arthritis occurs, your joints become inflamed and swollen, and your symptoms will include pain, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty with routine activities such as walking, raising your arm, or sleeping. Loss of cartilage or cartilage breakdown, results in rough edges on the bearing surfaces of the joints, which leads to increased friction and more wear. Eventually you lose all the cartilage, and 'bone on bone' arthritis is the end result.

We will make recommendations that match you, your disease severity, and your lifestyle. The surgical options will replace the joint (joint replacement surgery or arthroplasty). Dr Parikh has literally performed thousands of these types of joint procedures. Total joint replacement may be an excellent option to alleviate pain and restore function. When joint replacement is needed, either part or all of the damaged joint surfaces can be replaced (partial or total joint replacement surgery), depending on the situation. Dr. Parikh and his team routinely perform total joint replacement for the knee, and hip. If joint replacement surgery is needed, Harnett Health or WakeMed Cary offers wonderful post-surgical care through our skilled nurses and experienced physical therapists in house for those of you who may need to undergo this type of treatment.
