Athletes give all they’ve got when they’re running, jumping or swinging a driver, which means sports injuries are as serious as they are common. If you’ve been sidelined because of a sports injury, it’s important that you take the proper steps to get back on the field. Whether you need surgery and physical therapy for a torn ACL or to recover from a concussion, we have expert sports medicine doctors and therapists who can help you get back in the game.

Some seemingly small pains can turn out to be big injuries. And conversely, what might feel like a broken ankle can turn out to be a minor sprain.

If you need help finding a sports medicine doctor, you can use our online Find a Physician tool to get started.
