UI Sports Medicine offers a full spectrum of care for athletes young and old, competitive and recreational. Thorough evaluations and comprehensive treatment plans are available for everything from mild sprains and strains to more severe injuries.

The multi-disciplinary team of physicians, orthopeadic specialists, and physical therapists will work together to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate pediatric patients with the following conditions:

  • Concussion
  • Tendinopathy
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Growth plate injuries
  • Fractures
  • Adaptive exercise and sports
