What
We Do

Sports Medicine

The Sports Medicine team at SportsMED specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of all sports-related injuries, with special focus on knee, shoulder, hip, foot, and ankle conditions. Whether you are a high school athlete, college athlete, weekend warrior, or simply enjoy an active lifestyle, SportsMED can get you off the sidelines and back into the game.

You do not have to be a competitive athlete to see our Sports Medicine specialists. Sports related injuries, such as sprains, strains, broken bones, or torn ligaments can happen to anyone, regardless of age or fitness level. From treatment to recovery to rehabilitation, our goal is to get you back to the activities you love as safely and quickly as possible. If you are dealing with an acute injury, an overuse injury, or degenerative joint disease, SportsMED can help.
