Your Heywood Orthopedics Team gets you back in the game
No one likes to sit on the sidelines of life. Sports medicine is a specialty that prevents or repairs damage caused during sports or other physical activity using surgical and non-surgical treatment.
We focus on your bones and joints, the muscles, tendons and ligaments that all work together to affect the way you move. The right approach for each injury and person is unique, so we work one-on-one with you to listen to what you are feeling. Using imaging such as x-rays and MRIs we can diagnosis the causes of your injury and find the course of care that will be right for you.
Athletes of All Ages
Our orthopedic specialists work with kids and adults. Whether it’s an injury on the youth soccer field, the clicking knee of weekend warrior, or an old football injury from your college days, you can get answers and advice on how to return to your favorite activities without pain.
We use minimally invasive techniquest to restore function, minimize additional tissue injury and start the recovery process even before the operation.
