If an injury has you sidelined or playing with pain, it’s time to team up with the sports medicine specialists at the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine. We care for athletes of all ages and abilities, with treatments ranging from personalized rehabilitation and pain management options, to advanced surgical techniques, if needed.
Our specialists – including orthopaedic physicians and surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers and more – work closely together and with you to create a personal plan based on your needs and goals. So whether you’re a weekend warrior or full-time pro, we’ll help you get back in action.
Helping You Reclaim Your Game
Caring for an injured athlete is more than just applying a brace. Our sports medicine physicians provide hands-on, proven techniques that target the cause of your pain to restore strength, function and flexibility.
Just some of our specialties include:
- Acute sports injuries: from common sprains, strains and dislocations, to more serious conditions like anterior cruciate ligament and rotator cuff tears, and complex fractures
- Overuse sports injuries: treatment for tennis elbow, stress fractures, shin splints and tendonitis
- Injury prevention: education and training to improve body mechanics and balance and reduce the risk of getting hurt
Our program also provides team physician coverage for Bates College and we proudly serve as consultants for high school athletics throughout central and western Maine.
Minimally Invasive Techniques to Help Speed Healing
Whenever possible, we opt for non-invasive treatment, including therapy services regimens. But when surgery is your best solution, we offer the latest options designed with athletes in mind. That includes arthroscopic reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, elbow, knee, foot and ankle, which usually offer less pain and faster recovery versus traditional open surgery.
