Sports Medicine & Primary Care

Giving You a Running Start: Many of our primary care doctors have specialized training in sports medicine, serving as team doctors and offering on and off-the-field care during training and games.

Overview

What Is Sports Medicine-Oriented Primary Care?

Doctors who specialize in sports medicine can help you achieve your best athletic performance and stay injury-free.

At Aurora, many of our primary care doctors have special expertise in sports medicine care. These primary care sports medicine doctors work with athletes and active people of all ages - from children to college age athletes and beyond.

As team doctors, they offer preventive and first-line care during team practices and games. They also work closely with our sports health surgeons before and after surgery.

The Aurora Difference

The Perfect Marriage of Sports Medicine & Primary Care

Our primary care sports medicine doctors are active members of the community, serving as team doctors and medical advisors for kids and adults. We offer:

  • Sports medicine expertise: Our primary care doctors have specialized training in sports medicine. Our physical therapists are also specially qualified to treat sports injuries. Some have even completed training in balance and vestibular therapy for lingering concussion symptoms. Our athletic trainers are all licensed, and many hold master’s degrees and certifications in sports-related fields. Meet our sports health team.
  • Full spectrum care: Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a student-athlete or a professional, we can help with almost any sports injury you may face. Our comprehensive treatment options include non-surgical treatments like chiropractic care, physical therapy and acupuncture. When surgery is necessary, we offer expertise in all the latest techniques, including minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.
  • Open channels between primary care and sports medicine: Doctors and therapists use our electronic medical record system to exchange patient information and create personalized treatment plans. Integrating physical therapy with orthopedics and primary care provides a more streamlined experience and better overall outcomes.
  • Trusted community partner: Many of our primary care sports medicine doctors work directly with high school and college sports teams, including the Marquette Golden Eagles, the Division One men’s basketball team at Marquette University. When injuries occur, our doctors and trainers deliver care on the spot.
  • Convenient locations: Even in rural communities, many people have access to our specially certified sports medicine doctors.
