Our philosophy is to create specific treatment plans that are catered to an individual’s specific needs to improve and maintain overall function and performance.
We also believe, that in addition to treatment, our patients benefit from a thorough education of their injury so we can help prevent further injury and to assist them in maintaining a high level of function for overall satisfaction into their future.
The first thing an individual wants to know after they have been injured is “Will I be ok?” and or “When can I get back to my sport or hobby?” None of these questions can be answered until a person is correctly diagnosed. That is why it is so important to get into the right medical professionals and receive the appropriate diagnostic imaging such as x-ray, MRI, etc. Only then can a plan of treatment be implemented based on the specifically given diagnosis. It is very frustrating and discouraging to wait for 6 to 10 weeks to receive a diagnosis based on the time it takes to get into your family practice, orthopedic surgeon, and to get diagnostic imaging. AGAIN, all the while, still not knowing what the problem is and not knowing when you can return to work or sport safely.
One of the things we have at Stratton Sports Medicine is a network of health care professionals which include: family practice, orthopedic, and radiology doctors. With this network, the patient is able to receive a diagnosis within the first week. Then a prognosis can be set to determine when the patient can return to work or sport.
If there is anyone out there that is tired of having pain or of not being able to perform at the highest possible level because of an injury, come and let’s begin your road to recovery.
