Fort Lauderdale Sports Medicine Specialists
At Fort Lauderdale Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine, we excel in treating sports injuries and other conditions caused by exercise. While the most common treatment for sports-related injuries starts with rest, our care team is experienced at working with you to facilitate recovery work to prevent further illness and injury.
Sports Medicine Overview
Sports Medicine is about treating and preventing injuries that are caused during sports or exercise. Such injuries can result from injuries, inadequate training, lack of proper equipment, or even lack of conditioning and stretching. Our team of specialists are orthopedic providers who regularly treat common sports injuries, like ankle sprains, fractures, and injuries of the upper and lower extremities. With three orthopedic surgeons who are fellowship trained in sports medicine, our surgeons at Fort Lauderdale Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine can handle the most complicated sports injuries. And with decades of experience rehabbing these patients, our physical therapists are able to help high level athletes or weekend warriors complete the healing and recovery process.
