An injury is a damage to your body. It is a general term that refers to harm caused by accidents, falls, hits, weapons, and more. In the U.S., millions of people injure themselves every year. These injuries range from minor to life-threatening. Injuries can happen at work or play, indoors or outdoors, driving a car, or walking across the street.

Wounds are injuries that break the skin or other body tissues. They include cuts, scrapes, scratches, and punctured skin. They often happen because of an accident, but surgery, sutures, and stitches also cause wounds. Minor wounds usually aren’t serious, but it is important to clean them. Serious and infected wounds may require first aid followed by a visit to your doctor. You should also seek attention if the wound is deep, you cannot close it yourself, you cannot stop the bleeding or get the dirt out, or it does not heal.

Sprained ankle
Sprained ankles often occur while playing sports or engaging in high-impact activities or activities that involve a lot of quick twists, turns, or pivots.
ACL tear
An ACL tear involves tearing the anterior cruciate ligament, which is the ligament that runs diagonally through the middle of the knee. The ACL helps provide stability and keeps certain bones in place. When the ACL tears, it is difficult to bend your knee and may lead to instability when standing. ACL tears often occur during activities that involve quick stops and starts or turns.
Meniscus tear
The meniscus helps your knee turn and carry weight. If you twist or turn too quickly while your foot is in place and your knee is bent, you could tear your meniscus. It’s a common injury in professional athletes and elderly people.
Plantar fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. It is caused by repeatedly straining the plantar fascia, which is the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes and supports the foot arch. Symptoms of plantar fasciitis may include pain, weakness, and inflammation or swelling in the affected foot. It can occur in one or both feet.
Labral tear
A labral tear is commonly known as a dislocated shoulder. It’s usually an easy injury to diagnose because it causes severe pain and makes the shoulder or arm look out of place. Accidents, contact sports, and falls can all cause shoulder dislocation.
Rotator cuff tear
Rotator cuff tears may be acute, caused by shoulder injury, or chronic, due to degeneration of the shoulder tendon over time. They cause pain and severe stiffness when attempting to raise your arm or move your shoulder. Repetitive rotations of the shoulder in a short period of time can also strain the shoulder ligaments and lead to a rotator cuff tear.
Tennis elbow
Overuse of the muscles in the arm, forearm, and hand can result in a condition called tennis elbow, which causes pain in the elbow. It is also known as golfer’s elbow.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
carpal tunnel syndrome results from a pinched nerve in the wrist. There are many health conditions that can lead to this condition, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, wrist injuries, and more. If you experience recurring numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in your fingers, you should contact an orthopedic specialist for an evaluation.
Distal radius fracture (wrist fracture)
Wrist fractures often occur after a fall on an outstretched hand. Treatment options include immobilizing the wrist with a cast or, in some more serious cases, surgery.
Stress fracture
A stress fracture is an injury that results from overuse. When muscles get tired and weak, their ability to protect the bones from impact is reduced. When the muscles and bones are subjected to the same types of impact over and over again and the muscles are weak, the bones bear much of the impact, and they can crack or fracture.
Compression fracture
Compression fractures are tiny cracks in the bone that can lead to bone collapse. They are most common in the bones that support the spinal cord, and the leading cause of compression fractures is osteoporosis.

Dr. Nourian is the best. His bedside manner is friendly and professional and his staff is excellent. I went to see him after a terrible whiplash injury when I rear-ended while driving. After receiving my MRI results, the doctor was quick to reach out and went over my options with me. He really cares about his patients.

Michelle Sadighpour Shophet


Dr. Nourian is an outstanding physician. I injured my back while exercising recently. I went to see him, and he explained my injury to me in detail. He told me that my injury would most likely heal without surgery, but if I needed surgery in the future he would get me through it. He is honest, intelligent, and forthcoming. I am thankful for him as my spine physician.

Michael Broukhim


Dr. Nourian was absolutely fantastic. I was struggling with intense lower back pain. He took his time 40 minutes to be exact to see me and review everything with me after another follow up we decided to do surgery. Thank god!!! I’m back to working out, picking up my child, and living my best life. I was so hesitant to do surgery but he was a true god send. He would call me weekly to see how I’m doing.

After seeing three doctors and all of them saying I should operate Dr Nourian was able to address and issue without and surgery. I got an epidural and did physical therapy and I’m able to run around with my grand child. He’s truly a gem. Everyone at the office was friendly and supportive.

Dr. Nurian explained everything very well and preformed the surgery exactly as planned. I woke up pain free and the surgery pain was gone in five days. Could not give him enough praise.
