Sports Medicine, Pediatric and Adult

Although our team at OIP is highly trained in general orthopedic care, many of our physicians specialize in both pediatric and adult sports medicine. The goal of sports medicine is to help patients of all ages recover from an injury. Sports medicine is not just for professional athletes, but it’s also for children and adolescents involved in sports, amateur sports enthusiasts and those who wish to optimize their exercise programs.

Our sports medicine specialists in Harrisburg and central PA will treat your injuries, so you can get back in the game.

Common Orthopedic Injuries Addressed in Sports Medicine

OIP sports medicine specialists dedicate themselves to helping both pediatric and adult patients get back to enjoying the activities they love. Depending on the type of injury you’ve experienced, we can provide both surgical and nonsurgical services to treat a number of different conditions.

Some of the most common sports injuries addressed affect the bones, ligaments, joints and muscles. These include:

  • Fractures
  • Ligament, meniscus or cartilage damage
  • Damage to the knee
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder injury or instability
  • Hand, wrist or elbow injuries

The physicians at OIP will address your injury and come up with a treatment plan. In many cases, we can utilize non-surgical options and conservative treatments to treat patients.

Specializing in Advanced, Patient-Centered Shoulder Pain Treatment

One of the most common body parts affected by a sports-related injury is the shoulder. This is one of the most complex joints in the body. We can address many  shoulder problems using conservative treatment options.

  • Impingement with bursitis
