From a pick-up game of basketball to pumping iron with bad form to years of serving a tennis ball, sports activities can do an “end-run” on your bones and joints. Sometimes it takes the professional expertise of a sports medicine specialist, utilizing the latest diagnostic equipment and technologies, to help get you back in top form.
Comprehensive care for children, adolescents and adults is our game plan. Physicians on the medical staff who are specialists in sports medicine work with specially-trained physical and occupational therapists as well as athletic trainers to repair and rehabilitate all sports- related injuries, from the simple to the complex:
- Shoulder and elbow pain (frozen shoulder, rotator cuff, fractures, ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction)
- Hand and wrist pain (carpal tunnel, arthritis)
- Hip pain
- Knee pain (ACL, MCL and LCL tears, tendonitis, torn meniscus)
- Ankle and foot pain
If orthopedic surgery is recommended, many minimally invasive procedures are available to repair a wide variety of sports injuries. Your orthopedic surgeon can recommend the best surgical procedure for your sports injury.
Sports injury screenings are available by qualified personnel to assess level of injury and provide advice on appropriate treatment. A screening can be scheduled by calling 512.509.TEAM (512.509.8326).
