Primary care sports medicine

Surgery Isn’t Always the Answer.
Did you know that around 90 percent of all sports medicine injuries don’t need to be treated surgically? So, while we have some of the region’s most capable surgeons on our team, we’d like our patients to avoid the operating room as much as possible.

Physical therapy

An athletic trainer examines the knee of an athlete so that he can achieve his personal goals.

Physical therapy helps develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability to a body. It involves a process where movement potential is assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to physical therapists.

Physical therapists utilize an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan to maximize performance and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, and rehabilitation.
