Sports Medicine

Keep Doctors Knox, Rauls and McConnell in mind if you overdo your favorite sport and suffer an injury. Your care will often include working with a therapist to insure your recovery. Our therapists work closely with the doctors.

Dr. Knox, Dr. Rauls and Dr. McConnell 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
