Sports Concussion Care

When you have a concussion, you want expert medical care. Our athletic concussion treatment approach evaluates and manages head injuries to optimize your recovery. In most cases, we help our athletes safely return to school, work and full sporting activity. We offer the most current assessments and treatments to care for athletes of all skill levels.

Do You Only Treat Athletic Injuries?

Athleticism is not a requirement. We care for many different injuries. For example, we treat non-athletes who twist their leg while getting out of their car. We treat people who sense that painful pop in their shoulder while moving a box. If you develop unexplainable hip pain or suffer from a muscle strain while doing routine tasks around the house, we're here for you. Treatment by our non-surgical sports medicine specialists is often the perfect solution for life's ordinary strains and sprains.

If you have any questions about the sports medicine care we offer or would like to schedule an appointment, please call 928-336-7846.
