Orthopaedics and the Aging Athlete

by TOI Admin May 10, 2013

By Maritza Manressa

According to Dr. Michael K. Riley, Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon, at The Orthopaedic Institute in Ocala, the older athlete has a higher predisposition to chronic injuries, adding that the most common injuries in the aging athlete are related to overuse and repetitive microtrauma. For instance, golfers’ most common issues are problems with the rotator cuff, medial epicondylitis, which is an injury that affects the tendons in the elbow due to overuse, and inflammation of wrist tendons. Rotator cuff tears are also very common among tennis players and for those softball players – watch out for muscle strain and meniscal tears. Lastly, aging athletes who have been training most of their lives are certainly more vulnerable to developing osteoarthritis, which is the degeneration of the weight bearing joints, than the common folk.

Orthopaedic Care of the Aging Athlete

by TOI Admin November 9, 2011

 

By Michael K. Riley, M.D.

Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon

 

The aging athlete is the group of individuals over the age of 40 that have continued their athletic endeavors or taken up some sort of athletic activity in mid-adulthood. Exercise throughout life is a great practice because research has shown its positive effects on the aging process. It is a proven fact that maintaining an active lifestyle is healthy, and can increase the quantity as well as quality of life.  However, as we continue to age our body becomes more prone to injury due to the fact that our bones, muscles and even tendons begin to breakdown or become less elastic. Fortunately, approximately 30 to 50 percent of the physiological changes are the result of de-conditioning, that is, little or no exercise. 

 

To stay fit, healthy and continue athletic and fitness activities, one must train the body safely and properly. Our goal is to achieve a balance between an age-appropriate lifestyle while minimizing the impact of injuries on an active lifestyle. Treatment is focused on the framework of the body, including the skeleton and muscles, with a sports medicine approach that is safe, effective and in the best interests of our patients. No matter what level of activity our patient’s desire, we respect the importance of maintaining athleticism and we work hard to insure that our patients can continue the activity level that best suits their needs.

 

Treatment can range from medication, therapy, activity modification up to and including surgical intervention.
