Sports Medicine


 Many people think that sports medicine is typically related to caring for the young school-age athletes.  This is not true. In fact, active patients of all ages have physical problems that affect their ability to enjoy their chosen activities. This could be a high school football player with an ACL tear or a retired person trying to enjoy a game of golf, who may have a rotator cuff tear. 

Lansing Orthopedics serves both of these populations of patients, and they have been treating local athletes and "weekend warriors" since 1985. All athletic injuries are seen within 24 hours.

 Using the latest arthroscopic and minimally invasive techniques available, the doctors at Lansing Orthopedics offer the highest quality care possible. Their goal is to return both athletes and non-athletes to their previous level of activity in the safest, quickest and most efficient manner possible.

Furthermore, instructions for progressive and individualized home exercise programs are provided.  When appropriate, effective treatment progression is discussed with students' athletic trainers.

Typical problems that doctors at Lansing Orthopedics treat include the following:

Shoulder Dislocations Muscle Cramp
Shoulder Labrum Tears Shin Splints
Rotator Cuff Tears Sprains and Strains
AC Joint Injuries Stress Fractures
ACL Tears Heat Injury
Meniscus Tears Burners and Stingers
Cartilage Injuries Sprains and Strains
