You Have Treatment Choices!
The sports medicine providers at Movement Orthopedics will work with you to create a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan that fits into your busy lifestyle and addresses your specific needs.
Our providers take a conservative approach to treating sports injuries – and will recommend surgical intervention only when necessary. When surgery is required, we offer minimally invasive surgery options (such as joint arthroscopy) for reduced post-op pain and a faster recovery.
Sometimes, all that is needed to break out of a cycle of chronic pain, especially when repetitive strain is the cause, is physical therapy and pain-relieving injections. Physical therapy, in particular, can be critical to preventing re-injury.
We also perform a wide variety of in-office treatments as needed, including dressing of minor wounds, applying a cast for fractures, and manual adjustment of dislocated joints. When surgery is required, our providers have privileges at a number of area hospitals and outpatient surgery centers.
In all cases, it is our aim to appropriately treat your sports injury and ensure you recover quickly and safely, while minimizing any unwanted side effects or symptoms.

In addition to treating acute and chronic sports injuries, the sports medicine providers at Movement Orthopedics are also focused on helping athletes perform at their highest possible level and prevent future injuries. Performance-enhancing services we offer include:

- Golf-swing performance program, a TPI-based assessment and training program that can enhance your swing, reaction time, and overall performance at the game.
