Sports Medicine

Flathead Orthopedics
As Americans have become increasingly more sports minded and active, sports medicine and sports injury treatment have become important parts of our practice. Athletic injuries, most of which affect the musculoskeletal system, have become increasingly common. Our practice focuses on surgical and nonsurgical management of these injuries with an emphasis on safe and rapid return to full function.

Flathead Orthopedics is able to provide the latest innovations in sports medicine to keep our athletes and weekend warriors on the playing field.

Our board certified physicians have extensive training and experience in caring for these sports injuries, with special emphasis on:
  • Knee injuries including ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears and patellofemoral syndrome (injury resulting from the repetitive movement of the kneecap against the thigh bone)
  • Sprains of the ankle and groin
  • Muscle strains
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis elbow (epicondylitis)
  • Ligament injuries
  • Arthroscopy
  • Shoulder/rotator cuff injuries
