Sports Medicine Team

IBJI meets your individual needs with a multidisciplinary staff of highly trained and experienced specialists. Our team works closely together to ensure the best outcome for every patient:

Orthopedic Surgeons — IBJI Orthopedic Surgeons are in tune with the newest techniques and are active in researching ways to improve upon current techniques. Specializing in various body parts, our orthopedic surgeons offer surgical and non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Primary Care Sports Medicine — IBJI Primary Care Sports Medicine physicians offer non-operative orthopedic care for sports injuries. Services provided by these physicians include diagnostic imaging, ultrasound-guided injections, and regenerative therapeutic modalities.

Sports Neurologists — Sports Neurologists are physicians specifically trained in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in athletes, including concussion. In addition to training in general neurology, Sports Neurologists have completed fellowships focused on brain and neurological health of athletes.

Physical Therapists — Focus on the rehabilitation of a patient through manual treatments to aid impairments and promote mobility. A physical therapist will conduct physical examinations and review your recorded medical history to accurately apply the correct therapeutic technique. Physical therapy can relieve pain, improve limited function, and regain strength resulting from an athletic injury, accident, or chronic musculoskeletal condition. Additionally, a physical therapist is vital to helping patients in their rehabilitation after surgery.

Certified Athletic Trainers — IBJI Athletic Trainers work directly with our physicians in our clinics and on the field to provide direct input for an athlete’s care plan. They collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, urgent care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and musculoskeletal conditions.

Sports Medicine Performance Training — Sports Medicine Performance Training is a step that athletes can take after completing physical therapy. This training gets you back to performing advanced athletic moves like sprinting, cutting, jumping and pitching. Our performance trainers will help you recover and make sure that you have a safe return to your sport at your highest performance level.
