Treatment For Athletic Conditions
When it comes to expert treatment for athletic conditions and injuries, you can turn to the experienced physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Conditions. We cater to athletes both amateur and professional. By limiting the number of patients we see daily, we are able to offer a better patient experience than many other sports medicine and orthopedic practices. Our lower patient-to-provider ratio enables us to take the time we need to accurately diagnose the source of the problem so we can recommend a customized treatment plan.
During your initial consultation, one of our Interventional Sports physicians will take a thorough family and medical history and conduct a thorough physical examination. We will also use any diagnostic tests that are necessary to accurately diagnose your condition. Once this has been completed, we will recommend an individual treatment plan based on your specific needs and goals.
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is dedicated to using the most conservative, non-surgical treatments available to help you recover from your injury or athletic condition. However, in certain cases, surgery may be required to effectively treat the problem. In this case, we will use the most minimally invasive surgical techniques possible. We are proud to be one of the Southeast’s leading providers of endoscopic spine surgery. Using this advanced surgical technique, we are able to offer effective surgical solutions with fewer complications and a shorter recovery time.
At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we cater to athletes. If you are a professional athlete, we will provide special accommodations to ensure that you get the treatment you need in the privacy that you desire.
If you are in need of treatment for an athletic injury or condition, please contact our Atlanta Orthopedic Doctors for Athletes at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation.
