Functional Analysis

Sports medicine derived from the need to treat and prevent the injuries of elite athletes, but this branch of medicine has evolved to a wider spectrum. Sports medicine of today encompasses a broad array of specialties that support the care and training not only of elite athletes, but of all physically active individuals.

Whether you’re a high school, college or professional athlete, a frequent marathon runner, an occasional jogger, a weekend tennis player, or someone who simply enjoys any type of physical activity, sports medicine specialists can help maximize function, minimize disability and ultimately reduce time away from a sport, school work, and/or job.

Many sports medicine physicians, specifically orthopedic surgeons, specialize in athletic injuries of the bones, joints, muscles, cartilage and ligaments, usually with a special focus on spine, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle conditions.

Sports injuries can result from accidents, inadequate training, improper use of protective devices, or insufficient stretching or warm-up exercises.

Injury prevention
Musuloskeletal Diagnosis

Our compassionate doctors begin caring for you by first taking the time to understand the specifics of your condition, pain or injury. This may include:

Biomechanical assessment: To analyze and understand how your muscles and joints are working, if they are functioning proficiently and if they are aligned properly.

Diagnostic ultrasound: To further evaluate soft tissue in real-time in the exam room to see any muscle tears, inflammation, excess fluid or other indications of a condition. All of our sports medicine experts are trained at ultrasound-guided diagnostic evaluations to help determine the cause or source of pain, when needed.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

At Dayton Orthopedic Surgery, our team offers the most advanced and comprehensive non-surgical sports and musculoskeletal medicine treatment options available. Our team of doctors is committed to discussing all of your options with you so that you feel confident and empowered in your decision making about your care.

Treatment options may include:

Ultrasound-guided injections: This minimally invasive procedure uses ultrasound technology to help precisely target and inject medication directly to the site of an injury or pain. This helps improve the efficacy of the medication.

Regenerative medicine treatments: Such as PRP or Stem Cells

Preventive care: In addition to these treatment options, our doctors will also work closely with you to prevent future injuries and pain. This may include recommendations for strengthening or stabilizing exercises, as well as ergonomic changes to promote better alignment or posture.

Physical therapy

Patient education: We specialize in educating patients regarding activities and lifestyles that best promote preventing pain and preserving joint and tendon health.
