Helping people return to their favorite sport with a team of physicians and therapists

We want you to get back in the game at University Orthopedics, whether that means sports, work or just everyday life. We provide specialized care for those people suffering from sports injuries.

The specialty of sports medicine involves evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of the injury, as well as focusing on prevention of future re-injury. This emphasis on prevention ensures a positive recovery, an improved quality of life, a safe return to sports.

Our sports medicine physicians have worked with athletes who are expected to perform at peak performance in demanding sports like football, basketball, hockey, baseball, etc. This experience also helps us address the special needs of the weekend athlete who wants to recover from injury to perform at the same pre-injury level with sports like running, golf or tennis. We try to provide this attention to every patient who visits our practice and wants to get back to their favorite sport.

Regardless of the level of the athlete — recreational, high school, college, or even professional — our goal is to help the injured athlete back to their favorite sport or recreational activity. Rehab efforts are designed to relieve pain, strengthen the joints, muscles and tendons, and then simulate the activity required in the specific sport.

The University Orthopedics Sports Medicine Center includes board-certified orthopedic surgeons who are fellowship-trained in their specialty, the highest level of medical training in the U.S. The center includes diagnostics like X-ray and MRI, along with an exercise gym with physical therapists experienced in knee, foot/ankle, shoulder, elbow and hand injury. This rehab team takes a comprehensive approach to treating sports injuries all emphasizing an active approach to recovery. If surgery is necessary, the University Orthopedics physicians are trained in the latest minimally invasive surgery techniques that enable most patients to have surgery and to be home the next day.

Dealing with the young athlete

Sports medicine experts across the U.S. have noticed that there is an alarming trend in “professional-level” injuries among young athletes. The number of youth injuries is reaching epidemic proportions and young athletes are experiencing overuse injuries at a younger and younger age. The high rate of youth sports injuries is fueled by an increase in overuse and trauma injuries and a lack of attention by coaches to proper injury prevention.

Overuse injuries impact young athletes in the short term but often lead to long-term consequences. Having proper preventive measures such as pre-participation physicals, stretching, cross-training, hydration and open communication about pain among all participants (coaches, athletes, parents and healthcare providers) can help aid recovery and avoid long-term consequences.

Our objective is to help the teen athlete to mature into an adult without long-term sports ailments into adulthood.
