How Do MRI Scans Help Athletes?

What is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It’s like a super camera for looking inside your body!

Seeing the Muscles

MRI helps doctors see muscles. They can check if they're strong or if there’s an injury.

Looking at Bones

It also looks at bones! Doctors can find tiny breaks that are hard to see.

Spotting Swelling

Swellings can be painful. MRI shows if there’s swelling inside from injuries.

Joints connect bones. MRI checks if these connections are healthy.

Checking Joints

MRI is quick and doesn’t hurt. It uses magnets, not x-rays, so it’s safe!
