Injuries Happen.
Advance Your Path to Recovery When They Do.

We are Sports Medicine professionals with special training in restoring function to injured patients to get moving again. We also work at preventing injuries for athletes of all ages and anyone who is active and gets injured. Plus, we also treat those who have physically demanding jobs, like construction workers, warehouse workers, etc.

Treating injuries in children and teens whose growing bodies can be quite different from adults, we can help them recover safely.

Many sports-related injuries, such as those suffered while playing tennis or golf, running, working out with weights and machines, can often be prevented. Before you start any exercise or workout routine, check with us to make sure you are physically able to start something new and learn about preventive measures to help protect yourself.

A Pound of Prevention is Worth More Than an Ounce of Cure!

“Think” Before You “Do”

If you’re thinking of beginning an exercise routine, or changing from one you’ve been doing for awhile, talk to us first. We can advise you on steps you can take to protect your health.

Some tips include:

  • Work yourself into shape slowly. It’s the most important prevention element, particularly for “weekend warriors” who may be tempted to go all-in and all-out. In that case, it’s not a matter of when you get hurt, but how bad.
  • Use a graded exercise program to get into shape gradually and then stay in shape year-round.
  • Warm-up before each exercise session and cool down afterward.
  • Stretch regularly; exercise makes muscles strong, but they also get tight and short — stretching preserves flexibility and reduces the risk of injury.
  • Use good equipment starting with well-fitting shoes for weight-bearing activities.
  • Use good technique; a few lessons with a personal trainer or a little coaching from a pro can improve your mechanics and performance.
  • Don’t overdo it. Fatigue and dehydration impair concentration, often leading to a misstep or fall. Overuse is the major cause of injuries; give your body a chance to rest and recover after workouts, particularly when you’re first getting into shape.
  • Alternate heavy workout days with easier ones, and vary your routine and focus different parts of your body; some people might walk one day, play tennis the next, and garden the third.
  • Days off are equally as beneficial as it gives muscle time to heal and build!

Exercise is important. Doing it right is more important. To get started on the right foot, check with us first so that we can check your overall health. Then, if you get hurt, come back to us, so you can keep moving forward.
