Best of all, they work close to where you play, work and live.

Your Treatment

It’s estimated that more than 10 million sports-related injuries happen every year. If you live an active lifestyle, chances are you’ll experience one of these injuries in your lifetime. When an injury occurs, you’ll find the right treatment options, right here at Holland Hospital.

Sports injuries are most often due to either trauma or overuse of muscles and joints. The good news is many of these injuries can be prevented. By executing proper training and conditioning, utilizing appropriate equipment and wearing protective gear, you can reduce the likelihood of injury. Our sports medicine specialists can help prevent, as well as diagnose and treat all common sports injuries, enabling patients to regain pre-injury levels of activity.

We’re adept at handling the full range of sports medicine issues and concerns, including screening for cardiac abnormalities, female athlete triad, exercise-induced asthma, diabetes in sports, and many other conditions.
