Sports Medicine

Comprehensive Sports Medicine in North Central Arkansas & South Central Missouri

Regardless if you are an amateur Frisbee player or a professional football player, you need to be careful while playing your sport. Unfortunately, injuries occur all the time during sporting events due to their physical and competitive nature. Students, recreational players, and professional athletes alike need to engage in safe playing practices to reduce the risk of injury. At Baxter Health, our comprehensive and fully integrated sports medicine program can be tailored to fit each athlete’s fitness or recovery goals.

One Size Does Not Fit All

As an athlete, you wouldn’t wear someone else’s shoes to a match or competition because they may not fit properly. The same is true for rehabilitation programs. Since athletes’ bodies are very different from one another, it would not make sense to prescribe the same rehabilitation program to different patients. At Baxter Health, our sports specialists spend extensive amounts of time getting to know you and your body. After we are confident that we know how your specific body operates, we will work alongside you to create a comprehensive, personalized program for recovery.

Several common sport injuries our skilled doctors have experience with are:

  • Sprained ankles
  • Pulled groins
  • Strained hamstrings
  • Shin splints
  • ACL tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Strained hip flexor
  • Concussion
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
