All-Star Orthopaedics Supports the Alliance Rugby Club
Recreational activity is one of the best ways to maintain health and fitness while also having a good time. At All-Star Orthopaedics, our sports medicine specialists support a number of local athletic teams, including the Alliance Rugby Club (ARC) in North Texas, where they attend games, assist members during play, and provide medical care as needed before, during, and after matches. Rugby is a popular sport for children and adults, with a rich tradition abroad and growing enthusiasm here in the states. Rugby is a contact team sport much like football, and as such is one of the more aggressive athletic events around. Our physicians are committed to helping to maintain a safe environment for the players while on the field, as well as helping them heal and return to play after an injury or accident.
There is a multitude of ways that sports injuries can occur, even when following the rules. However, many types of concerns can happen as a result of inadequate training, warming up, and stretching as well as improper use of gear. Our physicians help to limit these types of injuries by assisting coaches and athletes at all levels of play. Furthermore, they provide an educational resource on the best ways to maintain a healthy body both on and off the field. Our physicians believe that surgery is a last resort, and when a sports injury occurs, they utilize the most advanced non-surgical techniques available to aid the individual’s recovery, including physical therapy, braces and orthotics, injections, prescribed medication, and other minimally invasive options, before recommending minimally invasive orthopaedic surgery. One of our sports medicine specialists attends every rugby game to help ensure the players receive the care they need.
Rugby is a fun, lively sport and All-Star Orthopaedics is proud to support the athletes, coaches, and other team members of Alliance Rugby Club.
