What Is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine aims to help athletes or any active person recover as quickly as possible after an injury. To achieve this, physicians receive special training in comprehensive care techniques.
At The Orthopedic Clinic, we have three fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians. They treat a wide range of patients from professional athletes to teens and children to those who have physically demanding jobs.
Sports medicine helps injured patients restore their health and range of motion quickly, and also provides care and education on how to prevent future injuries and sport-related illnesses.

Sports Medicine Treatments
Our three fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians perform several treatments at The Orthopedic Clinic, including:
An ACL tear is an injury to one of the ligaments in your knee, and is most commonly seen in athletes who participate in high demand sports. It can be caused by sudden movements, landing incorrectly from a jump, or trauma. When designing treatment, we’ll take into account your lifestyle and specific needs.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that hold your shoulder in place. If a rotator cuff injury occurs, the person experiences pain, swelling, and a limited range of motion. This type of injury can be caused by trauma, repetitive movements, or normal wear from aging. Whether you need conservative treatment or surgery, we’ll tailor the best plan for you.
The Achilles tendon is the strongest and largest tendon in the human body. It connects the muscles in your calf to your heel bone. It’s often injured by failing to stretch properly prior to exercise, a sudden increase in activity levels, or a bad landing after a jump. When the injury is minor, it can be treated with at-home care. However, if you need surgery, we’ll make sure to individualize a treatment plan to your specific situation.
Shoulder Dislocation and Instability
Typically caused by dislocation or repetitive strain (common among athletes), we individualize our treatment plan to your needs.
This injury occurs when muscles become fatigued and unable to absorb shock. The fatigued muscle then transfers the overload of stress to the bone, causing a tiny crack called a stress fracture. Common among athletes, we individualize our treatment plan to your needs.
