Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2019 -- One of the most frustrating things about taking up a new sport is making beginner's mistakes that can cause injuries.

Consider tennis. Inexperienced players with poor serving form are especially vulnerable to rotator cuff tendonitis, which occurs when you aggravate the sheaf of tendons and ligaments that support your arm near your shoulder joint. It can be extremely painful, but usually can be treated successfully with rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) and anti-inflammatory drugs. Fortunately, athletes who suffer this or any orthopaedic injury need not travel far for quick and accurate diagnoses and treatments. Kayal Orthopaedic Center is the most trusted sports medicine team in Westwood, NJ, throughout Bergen County and beyond.

Many people take up tennis because of its various health benefits. It's a sport that is good for your heart, lungs, blood pressure, metabolic function, bone density, weight control, reaction times, muscle tone, strength and flexibility.

However, in addition to rotator cuff tendonitis, other common upper limb injuries that tennis players need to be aware of are: tennis elbow, impingement syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. Common lower limb injuries include: sprained ankles, patella tendonitis, meniscus cartilage tears, Achilles tendon tears and ruptures, hamstring strains and tears, calf strains and tears and stress fractures in the feet and back.

Many tennis-related orthopaedic injuries can be resolved with rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) and anti-inflammatory drugs. But it's always wise to seek medical attention because some minor injuries can become chronic problems if ignored. When playing injuries require surgery, including hand and/or wrist surgery in Bergen County, NJ, the elite, award-winning surgeons at Kayal Orthopaedic Center are the obvious choice.
