As Wisconsin’s largest sports health program, we help athletes and active adults of all skill levels overcome common and complex sports injuries.

Highlights of our program include:

  • Accurate diagnosis: Our goal is to diagnose your condition in as few visits as possible. Diagnostic tests may involve on-site imaging like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to help us understand the precise location of your injury. The quicker and more accurately you’re diagnosed, the faster you’ll be on the road to recovery.
  • Broad range of treatments: In addition to surgical and nonsurgical treatments, we treat many sports injuries with integrative medicine. Holistic approaches like chiropractic care and massage therapy can help you feel better without medication. Find out more about integrative medicine.

Complex Injury Care

Surgery & Pain Management to Promote Recovery

Even if other treatments have not been successful, our experts can help you recover from stubborn sports injuries.

Treatments for complex injuries include:

  • Orthopedic medicine and surgery: Seeing one of our orthopedic surgeons doesn’t always mean you need surgery. We treat many complex injuries using nonsurgical techniques like bracing and physical therapy. Find out more about orthopedic medicine and surgery.
  • Minimally invasive surgery: If you need surgery, we use a minimally invasive approach whenever possible. Techniques like arthroscopy involve the use of special tools to carry out complex procedures through tiny incisions. Read more about minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.
  • Balance and vestibular therapy: Physical therapists with special training guide you through exercises to overcome lingering concussion symptoms like dizziness. Learn more about balance and vestibular therapy.

Integrative Treatments

Natural Sports Injury Care

Integrative medicine helps you get sports injury care on your terms – without medication or surgery.

Integrative sports medicine treatments include:

  • Acupuncture: This treatment restores the flow of energy within the body. Also known as Qi (“chee”), this energy can be manipulated with fine needles to reduce pain. Our team includes certified acupuncturists who maintain the highest standards for safe, effective care. Find out more about acupuncture.
  • Chiropractic care: Chiropractors gently align the bones and soft tissue in your joints to reduce swelling. This type of sports injury treatment is available at all Aurora clinics. Read more about chiropractic care.
  • Massage therapy: Massage increases blood flow, which in turn promotes healing. Our team includes licensed massage therapists who are experienced in a variety of therapeutic techniques, including sports massage. Learn more about massage therapy.
