Sports Medicine

TREATMENT FOR ALL ATHLETIC LEVELS

At Great Lakes Orthopaedic Center, our sports medicine specialists take a team approach in helping you return to your favorite sports and activities. Serving patients throughout Traverse City and Northern Michigan, our leading physicians and physical therapists treat athletes of all skill levels from professional competitors to morning mall walkers. With individualized programs, we provide diagnosis, treatment, and follow up that helps reduce pain and increase function.

The GLOC staff knows sports firsthand from participation in various athletic activities, so we understand how important it is to get back in the game. At times, rest is necessary to allow the body to heal injuries, but often patients and athletes can continue with alternative exercise and activity (“cross-training”) while allowing the injury to improve. Rest assured, our sports medicine specialists focus on the appropriate nonsurgical or surgical options to return you to your full activity.
