Our patient population primarily consists of active individuals ages 10+ with general orthopedic conditions of the spine and extremities.

Other areas of specialization in our clinic include the following:

  • Sports medicine diagnoses and running related injuries

    We embrace community involvement with our clinical team including offering sports medicine outreach services, participate as sponsors for race events, and have partnered with local gyms and fitness & wellness professionals to host workshops on injury prevention and other topics.

    Our team is very active in supporting our community and networking with other professionals.

    Our practice was opened in 2012 and has experienced growth and expansion in the size of our facility, growth of our clinical team, and diversification of our services despite the challenges of POPTS and reimbursement challenges to our industry.
