Sports Medicine

Knox Orthopaedics provides a complete range of orthopaedic services for adults and children who suffer sports injuries. Our board-certified physicians and therapists know sports. They know how the body responds to stretching, running, passing, sliding, swinging, kicking, dunking, tackling...all the things you love to do. And they know what to do when the game impacts the body with bruises, pains, sprains, pulls, twists, tears, cracks, and fractures.

Sports can be hard on an athlete's muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints. Conditioning and strengthening can prevent many injuries such as:

  • ACL tears
  • Tennis & golf elbow
  • Ankle sprains
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder bursitis

When an injury occurs, the doctor and the therapist provide treatments to restore and strengthen the body for the future.

  • X-ray & MRI
  • Exercise therapy/passive motion exercise/isokinetic exercise
  • Testing of muscle strength
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Phonophoresis
  • Physical Therapy

Your care will often include working with a therapist to ensure your recovery. Our therapists work closely with the physicians to provide a complete treatment plan.
