UT Health Austin: Sports and Injury Clinic

Articles Blog


Our Sports and Injury team
sees patients from weekend warriors to
professional atheletes. Anybody with a condition that’s
keeping them from their optimal level of performance
is welcome to come in. We get you back to
where you need to be mentally, physically,
socially. We can help you decide,
does this injury or does this problem
need actually to be managed with something
as serious as surgery, something as minor as
home exercises, or is it going to heal up
on its own just fine? We have lots of members
to our team that a traditional healthcare clinic
wouldn’t have – like social workers and
dieticians and and physicals therapists – right in with all of the other
providers in one room. When you come in,
maybe you’re only going to need to see the physician, but whether or not you see
the rest of us, we are in the background and we’re researching,
we’re brainstorming, and we’re trying to meld our ideas to come up with the
best program for you. Say someone comes to me
and their goal is to be able to run five miles without pain, we have to worry about
cardiovascular strength, overall strength, running mechanics,
and things like that, so we’re taking a very
comprehensive look of what do we need to do to
achieve this goal of running? Not just what do we need to do
to get the knee to stop hurting? Coming in our clinic,
it shouldn’t be hard, it shouldn’t require a lot
of effort on your behalf. It’s not necessary to
have a referral, it’s not necessary to be seen
by another provider first. We want to be open to anyone who wants to be seen
in the clinic. Every patient that is
coming here is going to get top notch care. You have our full,
undivided attention. You will not be rushed because you are
our main concern.
