Get back into the action

Sports injuries

Sports injuries can not only take you out of the game but also impact your quality of life. Our surgeons will use the best techniques available to treat sports-related injuries and conditions and get you back in the game fast, very often without requiring surgery.

Sports injuries can result in decreased or complete degeneration of normal function of the shoulder, hip, knee, foot, ankle, hand, wrist and more. If you are an active person that loves to participate in sports activities, these conditions can be very troublesome and debilitating.

Treatment options

Our dedicated orthopedic specialists and staff offer a variety of treatments to get you back on track, from physical therapy to minimally invasive arthroscopy or, if needed, more involved surgical procedures such as joint replacement therapies. In fact, within Atlantis Orthopaedics, Palm Beach Sports Medicine is an institute that focuses on sports-related injuries of the shoulders and knees.

Using the most effective, least-invasive treatment

Depending on the degree of your injury, we will recommend the proper and least invasive treatment. Our patients normally suffer from sports-related soft tissue injuries. We treat sprains, muscle strains, and ligament tears. We will formulate a treatment plan that brings you the best results for your type of injury.

One of the least-invasive surgical options we offer is arthroscopic surgery. Arthroscopic surgery involves small incisions and the use of a camera that allows us to see your injury and correct it. Though this will not take away from your healing time, it does allow us to treat your injury without causing damage to the other structures in the area. This is one of the best sports medicine options that is available in West Palm Beach. Since this procedure is done on an outpatient basis, it is much more comfortable for our patients.
