The Sports Medicine Division at Rochester Community Orthopaedics features a specialized group of board certified practitioners and staff focused on meeting the diagnostic and treatment needs of both serious and recreational athletes. Collectively they understand the role activity plays in keeping a person fit and are dedicated to helping patients get back into their game.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to understand the goals and motivation “driving” individuals in their sports or performance activities. The group considers this essential in determining how quickly and what type of intervention is implemented, how performance and recuperation should be monitored and what comprehensive rehabilitation plan is right. The sports medicine team has as its goal the safe restoration of function as well as minimizing or preventing de-conditioning of unaffected anatomy or structures by neglect or inactivity.
We provide a range of diagnostic approaches that include MRI, Ultrasound, X-ray and CT as well as treatment options such as medication, exercise, therapeutic procedures and surgery. Conditions treated include:
- Sprains and strains
- Torn ligaments
- Joint inflammation
- Conditioning issues
