The specialty of Sports Medicine has become a primary focal point on the injured competitive athlete over the years. Sports Medicine is not just for the athlete, but for everyone. The specialty has grown to encompass the needs of all individuals with musculoskeletal injury or pain who have a need to maintain or pursue an active lifestyle.
Most injuries and conditions that are treated are not always the result of a sports injury or work related incident. Sometimes they are simply a result of the normal aging process or inactivity. The main focus of our Sports Medicine physicians is the utilization of conservative care first rather than offering surgery as the first option.
OrthoLA serves as Nicholls State University team physicians as well as the team physicians for all of Lafourche Parish public and private high schools.
We are committed to providing the highest level of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care to the student athletes of our area. OrthoLA’s Sports Medicine Team of physicians and staff strives to serve and to be available to you should the need arise.
