Whether you’re an elite athlete, a high school football player or a cycling enthusiast, you want to stay in top physical shape. And while your chosen activities help you stay fit and strong, they also increase your risk of injuries.
If you’ve ever missed a season or a marathon because of a torn tendon, broken bone or sprained ankle, you know recovery is frustrating – but necessary. Without appropriate treatment and rehabilitation, your injury may not heal properly.
Whether you need surgery to repair your rotator cuff or physical therapy to regain range of motion, Mercy’s sports medicine team can help. Our sports medicine doctors, orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists provide more than just medical care. We’ll also coach and cheer you on until you’re ready to get back in the game.

Our team also provides coordination and communication among everyone who has a stake in your recovery. We’ll work with your school’s athlete trainer or send updates to your primary care doctor.
