Sports Medicine

As Americans have become increasingly more sports minded and active, sports medicine and sports injury treatment have become important parts of our practice. Athletic injuries, most of which affect the musculoskeletal system, have become increasingly common. Our practice focuses on surgical and nonsurgical management of these injuries with an emphasis on safe and rapid return to full function.

Flathead Orthopedics is able to provide the latest innovations in sports medicine to keep our athletes and weekend warriors on the playing field.
