Our sports health medicine team members have expertise in treating sports-related shoulder and elbow injuries in athletes of all types. Whether your sport is CrossFit or aerial performance, or if you’re a coach who needs to stay active, you can get back to doing what matters.
Through the Norton Sports Health team approach to treatment, patients have access to a variety of care and support. Patients can expect to work with various professionals such as athletic trainers, physical therapists and nutritionists throughout their treatment journey. Through these appointments, patients are assessed for treatment with orthopedic specialists, neurologists or athletic trainers.
Our multidisciplinary team will work with you to develop the right plan. Our treatment plans often start with ice, rest and anti-inflammatory medication. Once your pain has improved sufficiently, physical therapy can help restore motion and relieve pain. Surgery is considered in severe injuries or in cases that don’t respond to conservative approaches.
