Exercise is essential to a healthy body and mind, and an injury should never take that away from you.

Whether you play sports, want to begin a new exercise routine or simply love being
active, it’s important to make sure you’re taking care of your bones and muscles and doing
everything you can to avoid injury and pain. A Sports Medicine specialist can help you make
sure you have everything you need to stay strong and perform well, whether that’s through
specialized treatment, healthy living tips or anything in‐between.

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine focuses on the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports, exercise and physical activities. It’s important to know Sports Medicine is not just for professional athletes, rather for anyone who lives an active lifestyle. We treat injuries of every day life, not just sports injuries. Some of our most common Sports Medicine injuries are knee meniscus and ACL tears, shoulder dislocations, rotator cuff tears and fractures.


There can be an inherent risk of injury when playing sports, exercsing or working in a physically demanding job. Our Orthopedic Specalists can help with conditions and injuries such as:

  • Minimally-invasive knee surgery
  • Treatment for broken bones
  • Joint instability management
  • Ligament reconstruction
  • Fractures
  • Rotator cuff tears treatment
  • Soft tissue injuries

We understand there is no one‐size‐fits‐approach and will build a customized treatment plan designed to fit your needs. While recovery time depends on the severity of the injury, we provide guidance and quality care every step of the way.
