A Complex Picture of the Human Body
We are constantly learning new things about how our bodies work, especially when they are under strain from day activities, weight training, running and walking. As a general rule, we are always accepting new patients but we stress a full evaluation is required before any treatment is administered. When our doctors complete an evaluation, we can determine whether treatment is suitable or if it will make the problem worse. Our #1 priority for all of our patients is to get them the treatment they need, not the most expensive or invasive treatment available. The last thing we want to do is make your sports injury any worse. Our sports injury treatments are well rounded and varied, but we are careful before we begin treatment, because there are situations where specific treatments can exacerbate a problem. After you are treated we always give you a thorough consultation on how to prevent sports injuries.
Athletes owe it to themselves to come see us if they are experiencing discomfort. We accept most insurance and provide extremely convenient hours at our easy-to-access location. Do not ignore the problem any longer and give us a call.
