Expert Care for Young Athletes

There’s no doubt about it — in sports, injuries happen. The pediatric sports medicine practice at Arnold Palmer Hospital is here to help your child with every issue, from bruises to breaks, conditioning to rehabilitation. No matter their athletic ability or skill level, our team of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians will develop an individualized plan that addresses your child’s health and goals. We treat a variety of sports-related injuries, including:

  • Ankle pain/sprains
  • Back pain
  • Concussion management
  • Elbow/wrist pain
  • Fractures
  • Hip pain/injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Nutritional conditions
  • Overuse injuries
  • Pre-participation physicals
  • Shoulder pain/dislocations
  • Sports readiness advice
  • Tendinitis

Maximizing Health with Technology

Diagnosing and treating your child’s injury is simplified with our technological capabilities. Our 3T MRI and 64-slice CT provide immediate detection of injury. Should surgery be required, our team is able to provide leading-edge techniques in arthroscopic and minimally invasive surgery. These methods of diagnosis and treatment reduce stress and healing time, getting your child back into practice, faster.

Young athletes often also need physical therapy and rehabilitation after treatment. Your child will have access to technologies that help regain optimal strength more quickly. Some of these include the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® and Sportsmetrics™, a jump-training program. Of course, the best treatment of injury is prevention and education. That’s why we partner with you and your child to promote and teach “Safe Play” habits. These are designed to prevent injuries from happening and educate about the best athletic practices.
