Sports Medicine

Whether you are a competitive or recreational athlete, an injury can seem like the end of the world. The WestSound Orthopaedics sports medicine team of physicians, therapists, and trainers follow the same steps for athletes at all levels: evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, followed by an individualized rehabilitation program designed just for your needs.

Activity helps keep you fit. You couldn't, and more importantly wouldn't, want to do without it. That's why our team is so determined to get you back to your game. Whether you need a sports medicine physician or physical therapist, we're here to provide a program of total care at WestSound Orthopedics.

Common sports injuries that we evaluate and treat include:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Sprains and strains, and other soft-tissue injuries
  • Burners and stingers
  • Female athletic triad
  • Muscle contusion (bruise)
  • Muscle cramp
  • Stress fractures

Please visit our patient education library to learn more about sports injuries.

Preventive Measures

While it is crucial to treat sports injuries as they occur, WestSound Orthopaedics believes there are many things an athlete can do to prevent injury in the first place.

We have developed a program to help coaches at all levels properly prepare their athletes physically, no matter the sport, to help avoid injury. In addition, our program addresses "first response" care for on-the-field injuries.

To learn more about this program, please call our office at (360) 698-6630 and ask for our physical therapy department.

STOP Campaign (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention)

There is a growing epidemic of preventable youth sports injuries that are dismantling kids' athletic hopes and dreams at an early age. In response, the STOP Sports Injuries campaign was created by a coalition of organizations and corporations to help prevent athletic overuse and trauma injuries in kids.

In addition, a Council of Champions has been established that includes business, sports, and medical leaders to actively engage youth sports parents, coaches, athletes, and healthcare providers in sports injury prevention.
