Sports Medicine

IBJI’s Sports Medicine physicians offer a coordinated approach to diagnosing and treating athletes of all ages and skill levels. Our fellowship-trained physicians are trusted by beginner, amateur, weekend warriors, elite, and professional athletes. Not only are many of our physicians elite athletes themselves, but they have also worked with elite athletes and support local high school teams.

Our specialists are here to help you recover from sports injuries and improve your overall wellness, fitness and performance. We provide a combination of therapeutic programs for injured athletes, which include medication assistance, as well as surgery and rehabilitation strategies.

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 all parties are on the same page of player safety:

Orthopedic Surgeons — IBJI Orthopedic Surgeons are in tune with the newest technology and are active in researching and learning how to improve equipment to determine the best approach for your care. Specializing in various body parts, our orthopedic surgeons offer surgical and non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.

Sports Medicine Primary Care — IBJI Sports Medicine Primary Care physicians offer non-operative orthopedic care for sports injuries, in addition to ultrasound diagnostic imaging, ultrasound-guided injections, and PRP injections.

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 pain management technique. Physical therapy can relieve pain, improve limited function and regain decreased strength resulting from an accident, accessory health condition, or orthopedic 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, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical 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.
