The sports medicine professionals at The Nebraska Medical Center understand that athletes don’t have to wear uniforms and athletic injuries happen anywhere, not just on athletic fields. An athlete is defined by age, gender, skill level or activity. Injuries resulting from a variety of activities can range from a sprained ankle to a more serious injury such as a sports related concussion.
Common injuries which may necessitate sports medicine include:
Because no two sports related injuries are alike, the medical center has built a sports medicine program that brings together physicians and professionals from specialties and sub-specialties who are committed to working together to develop a customized treatment and rehabilitation program for each patient.
The program is uniquely designed to meet the physical needs of where the patient is today, as well as establish the foundation for where they would like to be in the future. Experts from a variety of specialty areas collaborate on diagnosis and treatment ensure that patients receive a comprehensive interdisciplinary plan of care to achieve the best possible outcome.
