What We Treat
It’s often quite difficult to adequately assess the severity of an injury and a simple muscle strain can look very similar to more serious injury. Thus early assessment from a Physician specializing in your particular injury is essential for early appropriate management.
We have providers who specialize in every injury from head to toe.
Concussion and Head
Direct blows to your head or shoulder can lead to head injuries, as well as disc and nerve damage, strains and sprains, and other neck injuries.
Elbow and Arm
Any athlete who participates in repetitive overhead throwing, places extremely high stresses on the elbow and arm. These high stresses are repeated many times and can lead to serious overuse injury.
Leg and Hip
Leg and Hip injuries are common and it’s important not to delay the diagnosis and treatment. Many times, athletes return to activity before healing has satisfactorily progressed. However, this often results in re-injury and long term disability.
Back and Neck
Whether from participating in a sport or overuse, many people will develop a back or neck injury. Pain can come on suddenly or gradually and can cause an interruption in daily activities.
Wrist and Hand
Wrist and hand injuries are very common and it’s important not to delay the diagnosis and treatment. Visting with a wrist and hand specialist is essential for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Abdominal strains are fairly common in athletes because this group of muscles is constantly engaged to keep the athlete’s core tight and enhance an athlete’s performance. However, injure these muscles, and the athlete will have significant difficulty trying to perform.

Most clinicians describe a torn ACL as either partial or complete. This is based on physical examination and imaging findings.V isting with a knee specialist is essential for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Chest and Rib
Chest and rib pain in an athlete has a wide differential diagnosis. Athletes’ bodies may be subjected to sudden large indirect forces or overuse, and stress fractures of the ribs caused by sporting activities.
Foot and Ankle
Foot and ankle injuries are very common and it’s important not to delay the diagnosis and treatment. Whether from participating in a sport, everyday wear and tear, or overuse, many people will develop a foot or ankle injury.
Roator Cuff Tear
A rotator cuff tear occurs when any tendon of the rotator cuff rips, either partially or completely. Rotator cuff tears are among the most common types of shoulder injuries.
