Sports Medicine

Approximately 90% of all sports injuries do not require surgery. Mercyhealth’s sports medicine doctors specialize in the non-surgical treatment of musculoskeletal problems caused by sports-related, work-related or everyday injuries in people of all ages.

Our sports medicine doctors can maximize your non-surgical treatments, guide you to appropriate referrals to physical and occupational therapies, and, if necessary, refer you to an orthopedic surgeon.

When a serious injury or illness, or even aging, puts limitations on your life, we’re here to help you get moving again.

Did you know that a referral is not needed to see a physical therapist in Wisconsin and Illinois?

You have direct access to physical therapy, without the need for a referral from a physician. If an injury or condition turns out to be more serious, our therapists will make sure to find you the best provider for your specific situation. It is always a good idea to check with your insurance company to ensure that they do not require a referral, even in states with direct access.
