Knee injuries can occur suddenly with a sprain or tear of a ligament, or overtime with overuse.

The Sports Medicine doctors at Sauk Prairie Healthcare are experienced in evaluating and treating hip injuries caused by playing sports. Sauk Prairie Healthcare Sports Medicine doctors often treat these common hip conditions which athletes may experience: hip tendonitis, greater trochanteric pain syndrome, hip bursitis, osteoarthritis, hip labral tear, and growth plate injuries.
The shoulder is prone to injury when we fall, throw something a little too hard or repeat the same movement too many times. Sauk Prairie Healthcare Sports Medicine doctors often treat these common shoulder injuries: dislocated shoulder, AC separation, labral tear, rotator cuff tear, shoulder osteoarthritis, shoulder tendonitis, and shoulder bursitis.
Even the most talented athlete can suffer an ankle injury in moments of imbalance, athletic stress, and sudden strain. The Sports Medicine specialists at Sauk Prairie Healthcare commonly see athletes with ankle sprains and strains, ankle fracture, Achilles tendonitis, and ankle OCD.
A concussion is caused by a direct or indirect blow to the head or body. It is any injury to a person’s brain, even if it’s mild. Even a brief change in your mental function constitutes a brain injury that requires monitoring and protection. Sauk Prairie Healthcare’s Sports Medicine doctors in Sauk Prairie, Lodi and Spring Green manage and treat concussions so you can safely recover and return to play.
