Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is a subspecialty of orthopedics that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries suffered during athletic activity. The goal of treatment is to heal and rehabilitate the injury so patients can return to their favorite activities quickly, whether it’s Little League, recreational play or a high school, college or professional sport.

As with a sports team, there are many physicians who work together to help the patient regain maximum use of the injured limb or joint. “Players” on the team are typically the physician, orthopedic surgeon, rehabilitation specialist, athletic trainer and physical therapist – and the patient him/herself.

Common injuries treated include:

  • ACL Tears
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Fractures
  • Heat Exhaustion
  • Muscle Contusions (Bruise)
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Shin Splints
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Stress Fractures
  • Torn Tendons & Ligaments
