Orthopedic Sports Medicine


Sports medicine uses advanced methods to evaluate and treat injuries caused by acute trauma, such as fractures, sprains, strains, and dislocations, or from chronic overuse, such as tendonitis, degenerative diseases, and overtraining syndrome. 

A common misconception is that sports medicine is just for elite athletes, but in reality, sports medicine goes beyond the baseball field or basketball court.

Sports medicine can benefit:

  • Individuals with physically demanding jobs
  • Individuals with disabilities who want to increase their physical capability and mobility
  • Children and teens who play sports
  • Physically active adults
  • High-level athletes

Sports medicine helps restore and optimize function with treatment plans that can include exercise regimens, nutrition, supplements, and injury prevention measures so you can get moving again—maybe even better than before.

Ortho Plus: Specializing in Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine Boot - Ortho Plus Clinic

The providers at Ortho Plus have decades of experience in sports medicine and are experts in preventing and treating illness and injury in active people. Many of our providers were or are high-level athletes themselves, leveraging their own experiences to provide exceptional injury and preventative care to patients of all levels and ranges of functionality.

Sports and work-related injuries happen, and when they do, it’s rarely expected or convenient. With Ortho Plus, you can get the immediate treatment you need without the hassle or wait of the emergency room. Our broad range of services is available with competitive, transparent pricing—which you see upfront, not months later in a surprise bill—and performed in the comfort and convenience of our private clinic, not a busy hospital.

Sports Medicine for All the Ways You Move

Boot

If your body moves, sports medicine is for you. With experience in managing conditions or chronic injuries without surgery, an in-depth understanding of biomechanics, and a more specific set of treatment areas, sports medicine doctors can serve as an intermediary between a primary care provider and an orthopedic surgeon. 

Sports medicine is ideal for:

Children and teens. With differences in everything from physical and emotional needs to growth plates and anatomy, children and teens require different care than adults to stay healthy, strong, and active. Wide ranges of size and skill as well as still-developing balance and coordination make young children especially prone to sports injury, while the risk for teens goes up as they learn what they’re capable of and start to push the limits of their bodies. In addition to in-depth sports physicals and targeted guidance for young athletes, sports medicine can help reduce the risk of pediatric and adolescent athletic injuries and improve treatment outcomes when there is an injury, so patients can recover properly for better long-term health.  

Athletes. No matter what age, ability, or skill level, sports medicine can help improve athletic performance and overall health, reduce the risks of injury, and encourage optimal recovery. It can also help establish healthy habits and routines you can take with you when your sports career is over.

Active adults. Sports medicine can help you recover from injuries and minimize setbacks so you can maintain your strength and endurance and keep up your healthy lifestyle.

Seniors. Getting older doesn’t—and shouldn’t—mean you have to stop moving the way you want. Customized sports medicine programs can help you make the most of your body’s capabilities while respecting your age-related limitations, so you can stay healthy and avoid injury.

Workers. If you’re in a physically demanding job, the wrong tweak of a muscle can not only set you back, it could threaten your livelihood. Whether you stock shelves or load trucks, lift patients or lift construction materials, sports medicine can help you get back to work faster after an injury and provide you with the tools and resources to help you avoid them in the future.
