Helping you get back to doing the things you love!

Primary Care Sports Medicine

What is Primary Care Sports Medicine?

Primary Care Sports Medicine focuses on the diagnosis and management of orthopedic injuries and disorders, regardless of whether or not the issue is the result of an acute injury, chronic overuse, or simple wear and tear. While certain conditions may require surgery, many orthopedic conditions and sports injuries can be treated with a wide variety of non-surgical options. Our primary care sports medicine physicians work very closely with their surgical colleagues, and when a condition is appropriate for surgery, will make sure to get you connected to the appropriate surgeon in an expedited manner.

You certainly don’t have to be an athlete to see our primary care sports medicine team. Our physicians see anyone with orthopedic concerns, not solely athletes. Our physicians work with you in order to provide a comprehensive treatment plan and to get you back to doing what you love, pain free. 

Utilizing musculoskeletal ultrasound, and other advanced diagnostic and treatment tools, our team can diagnose conditions and precisely apply treatment (joint injections, nerve blocks, trigger finger injections, etc.). Studies have in fact shown improved outcomes when procedures are performed under ultrasound guidance.

Our physicians also have a focus on injury prevention, injury rehabilitation, and medical issues pertaining to active people. Our team will work closely with you to provide an accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment options. Our physicians can also help guide you with regards to performance enhancement through training, nutrition, exercise prescription and rehabilitation, and can help guide “return to play” decisions. Our sports medicine physicians are actively involved in the community and frequently provide medical coverage for various sporting events around the Omaha metro.

When you’re ready to get back to life pain free, our team can help guide you on how to prevent future injuries.
