Immediate Attention for Sports Injuries
Sports injuries can happen as a result of accidents, overuse or even inadequate athletic gear or equipment. Common sports injuries treated by our physicians include:
- Sprains, strains and other soft tissue injuries
- Knee injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
Our injury treatment program allows trainers to call our sports medicine direct line for an immediate phone consultation with a sports medicine physician and same day appointments for injured athletes. We also offer in-office diagnostic imaging with X-rays and MRIs, physical therapy and rehabilitation, and custom bracing to provide a complete injury treatment program.
Additionally, our sports physicians provide training, education and professional care services to local teams through our Sports Partnership Program and on-site medical coverage for sporting events at our partner schools.
