Stay active in the sport you love with our sports medicine services

We help athletes of all ages and abilities stay active while monitoring and maintaining a high level of health and fitness.

We developed our sports medicine program with one thing in mind: keeping athletes healthy and competitive. This goal means we support your training no matter your fitness level and provide comprehensive medical care for minor and more serious sports injuries. Our services include:

Sports injury treatment

Our team of fellowship-trained, board-certified sports medicine orthopedic surgeons and family practice sports medicine physicians are experienced in caring for the youngest of athletes as well as elite professionals and Olympians.

Our physicians lead a team of more than 400 experts from multiple specialties, including orthopedics, sports medicine, rehabilitation, athletic training and sports performance.

Many of our physicians are former high school and college-level athletes. They understand an athlete’s mindset and can easily help manage expectations around injury prevention and recovery.

Concussion management

If a sports mishap leads to a concussion, our credentialed ImPACT® consultants use expert knowledge from specialized training to evaluate, treat and manage concussions and concussion symptoms.

Sports rehabilitation

If your sports injury requires more intensive management, our sports rehabilitation specialists create a personalized rehab plan to help you regain function and return to the sport you love.

LVHN's sports rehabilitation program focuses on implementing the latest evidence-based research and techniques to help athletes get back to their sports. Our clinical rehabilitation skills carry over to the playing field, ensuring athletes are ready to return to play.

Sports cardiology

If you have a genetic or acquired heart condition but still want to perform your best, our sports cardiologist helps you achieve your goals while ensuring you stay as healthy as possible. We provide a variety of cardiac evaluations and treatments to keep you and your heart in good shape.

Athletic trainer services

Our certified and licensed athletic trainers work with athletes in area high schools, colleges and professional sports teams to evaluate injuries and manage treatment and rehab. Our athletic trainers provide initial injury assessment and make appropriate care recommendations. If necessary, our athletic trainers can also refer athletes to other orthopedic specialists within the health network.

Our on-site athletic trainers help keep athletes out of the doctor’s office and save families time and money. We provide the most cost-effective care possible to keep you on the field.

Created as a stepping stone between formal physical therapy and returning to the field of play, our Return to Play program helps safely maximize your athletic performance. Our certified athletic trainers closely supervise your recovery, helping you achieve your athletic goals while preventing re-injury.
