As one of the leading Sports Medicine Centers in the Midwest, we use evidence-based treatments to help keep athletes of all levels at their best.
Treatment of Sports-Related Injuries
Our sports medicine team provides a full range of medical and physical services to treat all athletes and injuries including those due to trauma or overuse of muscles, ligaments or tendons.
ACL Injury Treatment and Prevention
Evidence suggests that by participating in a structured prevention program, which emphasizes strength development, neuromuscular control and proper jumping/cutting technique you can minimize your risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.
We utilize the latest equipment and training techniques to conduct a thorough evaluation and design a conditioning program and individualized strength workout that will address your needs and goals.
Cartilage Restoration and Meniscus Transplant
Prolonging the life of a joint can make a dramatic difference in the performance of younger athletes. Our Cartilage Restoration and Meniscus Transplant program offers options for preserving joint function.
Rotator Cuff Repair
Rotator cuff injuries are common, especially among throwing athletes. But non-athletes suffer rotator cuff injuries as well. We have comprehensive treatments for a torn or damaged rotator cuff, regardless of the cause.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Platelet-rich plasma injections use new technology and regenerative biologics to stimulate tendon healing and reduce pain. The process involves drawing a patient’s own blood, and spinning it to isolate and remove the growth factor. The growth factor can then be reinjected, under ultrasound guidance, to treat painful conditions such as Achilles tendonitis, chronic hamstring tendonitis, tennis elbow and others.
Our physicians are using ultrasound to guide pain-relieving hip and shoulder injections instead of fluoroscopy guidance. Using ultrasound-guided injections eliminates the risk of radiation and gives real–time feedback.
Athletic Injury Recovery
AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill
Developed from NASA’s user experience in weightlessness, the AlterG anti-gravity treadmill uses a lifting effect to ease the impact of any weight-bearing exercise.
Physical therapy is used to aid athletes in their recovery from injury or surgical procedures. Using the latest equipment and treatment techniques, sports medicine physical therapy specialists focus on getting the athlete back in top shape and back to activity at the appropriate time.
Isokinetic Testing for Rehabilitation
Highly sophisticated, the Biodex Isokinetic System provides an array of data regarding muscle strength, range of motion and muscle power. It is often used as a rehabilitation tool for patients participating in a physical therapy program or recovering from injury. Before and after measurements are especially helpful in determining when an athlete is ready to return to activity.
