Our Approach to Healing

Dr. Martin believes in a comprehensive approach to managing orthopedic care. It’s important to know the symptoms, form a proper diagnosis, formulate treatment options and provide ongoing care to help our patients reach optimal health.

The benefits of sports medicine and surgery depend on the specific condition being treated and the individual patient's situation. However, in general, some of the potential benefits of sports medicine surgery include:

  • Faster recovery: Sports medicine surgeries are designed to help athletes recover quickly from their injuries, allowing them to return to their sport as soon as possible.
  • Improved athletic performance: Sports medicine surgeries can help athletes regain their strength, flexibility, and range of motion, which can lead to improved athletic performance.
  • Reduced risk of re-injury: Sports medicine surgeries can help prevent future injuries by addressing the root cause of the initial injury and correcting any underlying issues.
  • Improved quality of life: Sports medicine surgeries can help athletes regain their mobility and quality of life, allowing them to continue pursuing their passions and activities.

Overall, the treatment options for sports medicine and surgery depend on the specific injury and the athlete's individual needs. Dr. Martin can help determine the best treatment plan for each athlete.

  • Minimally invasive procedures: Many sports medicine surgeries can be performed using minimally invasive techniques, which can reduce pain, scarring, and recovery time.
  • Customized treatment plans: Sports medicine surgeons work closely with athletes to develop personalized treatment plans that address their unique needs and goals.
  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy is often used to help athletes recover from sports-related injuries. A physical therapist will work with the athlete to develop a rehabilitation plan that includes exercises and stretches to improve mobility and reduce pain.
  • Medications: Medications such as painkillers, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants may be prescribed to manage pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Rest and immobilization: Resting the injured area and immobilizing it with a brace or cast can help prevent further injury and promote healing.
  • Injections: Hyaluronic Injections or PRP injections (platelet-rich plasma) may be used to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Surgery: When other treatment options have been unsuccessful, surgery may be necessary to repair the injured area. Common sports medicine surgeries include knee arthroscopy, rotator cuff repair, and ACL reconstruction.
