Sports Medicine

The branch of orthopaedics known as sports medicine includes the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of injuries related to sports and/or exercise. From training elite professional and collegiate athletes to treating weekend warriors of all ages who want to stay active, OrthoWilmington is a leading sports medicine specialist.

Our comprehensive sports medicine care includes both surgical and non-surgical treatment. When surgery is indicated for a sports injury, we offer both traditional and arthroscopic procedures, and are a recognized leader in many newly developed surgical techniques that are much less invasive than traditional approaches, allowing patients to recover and resume activity much sooner.

Many OrthoWilmington physicians and physician assistants are sports medicine specialists, and our four physical therapy centers are staffed with dedicated therapists who are very experienced in helping patients recover from sports-related injuries. We also offer certified athletic trainers whose expertise includes injury prevention and helping athletes achieve peak performance.

An Integral Part of the Home Teams

OrthoWilmington takes pride in supporting the many communities we serve. We enthusiastically support Girls On The Run and Stride, organizations that promote physical fitness and positive character development in school-aged children, as well as serving as team physicians for many professional, collegiate and high school athletic teams in our area. Our physicians and staff also volunteer countless hours with civic organizations, medical missions and other non-profit causes.

About Sports Medicine at OrthoWilmington

More than 1 million Americans each year end up in Emergency Rooms and orthopedic clinics with injuries stemming from recreational activities. The fact that people are participating in sports and recreational activities is not the problem. Movement is great for the body, and essential to maintain a healthy heart. The problem arises when athletes push themselves too hard and strain a muscle, tendon, ligament or joint, or create a fracture in a bone from a hard fall or impact from a contact sport like basketball or football.tennis player injuries

Tennis players in particular experience routine problems with the repetitive pounding of feet and knees on a concrete tennis court, along with shoulder and elbow joint problems from hitting 120 mile per hour serves. Even tennis groundstrokes have changed over the years, requiring players to increase racquet speed to generate tremendous topspin from the baseline.
