Sports Medicine – Back in the Game
From professional performance, student, and recreational athletes to “weekend warriors,” Abington Health’s Orthopaedic & Spine Institute has you covered.
Our surgeons have extensive experience in the medical management and surgical treatment of sports injuries, including minimally invasive surgical procedures for Hip, Knee, Spine, Shoulder, Foot and Ankle, and Hand.
Using advanced technologies like fiberoptic surgical cameras, a specialized hip resurfacing technique, and innovative mini-incision spine procedures, these specialists provide the reconstructive expertise so vital to the rebuilding process.
These leading-edge treatments provide more natural bone/muscle conservation and a faster return to sports or everyday workouts than conventional surgery.
The first step is diagnosis – a thorough assessment of sports-related injuries. Our surgeons and clinicians focus on educating patients about the body’s biomechanics as well as helping you determine the best course of care. In addition to high-tech diagnostics, the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute offers advanced physical therapy and rehabilitation services in multiple locations.
Not all conditions require surgery. Our experts are conservative in medically managing problems, prescribing medications, injection therapies, and physical therapy whenever possible. Emphasis is on proper strength building, flexibility, conditioning, endurance and training techniques, as well as injury risk prevention.
The Facial Protection and Sports Eye Safety matching game is a fun way to learn about preventing sports related eye injuries by selecting a sport and matching it with the proper eye or face protection.There are also bits of interesting information throughout.
Educating and Partnering with the Community
Our clinical team is also actively involved in educating our area’s athletes, coaches and parents about injury prevention and recognition. We believe that educational programming is an integral factor to our success. Through integrating with local colleges, school districts and community venues, the Orthopaedic & Spine Institute has helped thousands of individuals better understand how to care for their bodies before, during and after participating in athletics.
