Sports Medicine Services
Sports medicine is a specialty that addresses the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries caused by participation in sports or exercise. Our sports medicine team focuses on rapid recovery and safe return to activity. A personalized treatment program is developed based on each individual’s injury, age, sport and other lifestyle needs. Movement patterns, body alignment and treatment goals are also unique factors contributing to all therapy and rehabilitation plans. Many of our therapists and physicians are former athletes themselves, and understand the demands of the sport.
Patients receive the latest and most effective diagnostic and treatment available in sports medicine through the use of advanced surgical techniques same as most of the ones used by surgeons across the world. Physicians who specialize in sports medicine also take an active role in preventive medicine, educating the patient on avoiding sports and fitness related injuries.
Frequently referred to by sportscasters as a “possible career-ending ACL tear,” a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is often the result of a non-contact “pivoting” injury, and professional athletes and amateur enthusiasts alike can be treated successfully with modern arthroscopic surgery.
