Pediatric sports medicine
We offer pediatric sports medicine for kids of all ages at Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, HealthONE's children's hospital in Denver.
Our pediatric sports medicine doctors treat a variety of sports- and play-related injuries. Whether an injury occurred on the field or in the backyard, we will work with you and your child to ensure effective treatment and proper healing.
Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children also offers a concussion clinic. Here, our concussion specialists provide comprehensive concussion management to ensure your child recovers fully.
Surgery for sports injuries
If a sports injury requires orthopedic surgery, you will receive excellent care before, during and after surgery at our hospitals.
We offer advanced surgical technology, and our surgeons use minimally invasive procedures whenever a patient's condition allows. With minimally invasive surgery, our patients typically experience shorter hospital stays and quicker postoperative recoveries.
Joint replacement surgery
Continuous use of a joint overtime can lead to wear and tear of that joint. As the components of the joint (such as the bones, cartilage or tendons) wear down, you may experience increasing joint pain. Joint diseases, like osteoarthritis, can also cause severe joint pain.
If nonsurgical treatments don't relieve your joint pain, joint replacement surgery may be necessary.
During a joint replacement, the doctor replaces the damaged parts of a joint with prosthetic implants. These implants are new and smooth, no longer creating friction within the joint when you move. This reduces or eliminates pain, restores mobility and allows you to get back to the activities you love.
Physical therapy for sports injuries
Physical therapy may be prescribed as a treatment for an injury or as postoperative rehabilitation. At HealthONE, you'll find comprehensive physical therapy and rehabilitation programs.
We offer inpatient and outpatient sports physical therapy services. Our therapists will customize a rehabilitation regimen to your condition and your sport, helping you regain strength and skill.
