They also understand their patients’ needs and desired outcomes, such as avoiding surgery or medication. Many of them are sports enthusiasts that know what it feels like to be sidelined due to an injury and they are dedicated to helping patients to get back to the activities that they love. Many of the providers are avid skiers, snowboarders, marathon runners, tennis pros, yoga enthusiasts, and weekend warriors.
In addition to traditional therapies and rehabilitation, Orthology Sports Medicine Specialists are also dedicated to utilizing their knowledge of orthopedic sports medicine to help their patients keep their bodies as fit and healthy as possible. Providers keep their patients involved and educated about every aspect of their disorder or injury and provide methods for maintaining optimal physical health in the future. This helps prevent recurrences of injuries or worsening of chronic conditions. They also develop customized home exercise programs for patients so they can get back to the lifestyle and activity level that they enjoy and can perform in peak physical condition.
Their approach to sports medicine is to provide a comprehensive set of options to maintain your athleticism, heal your body from injury, and keep it as pain free as possible. They do this through a combination of traditional medicine, advanced technologies and therapies, and a customized approach to treating each patient as an individual with unique needs and goals.
Orthology Sports Medicine Specialists strive for lasting results and sustained wellness. It’s fundamental to who they are: they break the cycle of injury and make sure the patient reaches or surpasses their ultimate goal. So, as part of this philosophy of care, they also spend time educating and encouraging you on when to return, if necessary, for a tune-up. If tightness, tension or incipient instability return, tune-ups can help you avoid re-injury.
They also have tune-ups geared to maximize performance before a race, a triathlon, a charity sporting event, or even a big softball game.
At some point after treatment, your body might slip into one of the bad habits that triggered your initial injury or pain. Tune-up appointments can prevent a relapse before it happens, since the #1 predictor of a future injury is a previous injury.
