Providing a Full Scope of Sports Medicine Services

Kids Playing Soccer

From competitive and elite athletes interested in maximizing their performance, to individuals looking to maintain their active lifestyles, the MultiCare Sports Medicine program provides exceptional care for any need related to sports and exercise.

Our program is staffed by board-certified and fellowship-trained sports medicine doctors and surgeons, primary care doctors, physical and occupational therapists and certified athletic trainers. We offer a full scope of services for patients of all activity levels with primary focus on:

  • Preventing Injury
  • Improving performance and efficiency
  • Facilitating your return to activity quickly and safely

We also understand the unique needs of female athletes. Due to a variety of factors, active women are prone to experiencing certain kinds of sports-related injuries, such as ACL tears and hip or shoulder instability. Whether your focus is on staying fit or competing at the highest level, we’ll help you get back in the game.

  • Ankle and foot problems
