Center for Sports Medicine

Orthopedic Sports Medicine

The Sports Medicine Center of Excellence at ORA Orthopedics – the largest and most comprehensive sports medicine practice in the Quad Cities – helps athletes of all ages and performance levels return to active lifestyles following an injury. If you have been sidelined by a torn ACL, herniated disc, ankle sprain, rotator cuff tear, tendonitis, overuse injury or another sports-related condition, our orthopedic doctors are eager to provide the personalized care you require to get back in the game, stronger than ever. We are proud to be the sports medicine provider of choice for high schools, colleges and professional sports teams throughout Bettendorf, IA, Moline, IL, Davenport, IA, and surrounding QC communities.

Sports Medicine Specialists

ORA Orthopedics takes a practical, patient-centered approach to sports medicine. From your diagnosis through your recovery, we treat you as a valued member of the ORA family. Our sports medicine specialists will carefully evaluate and address your health concerns, explain your diagnosis, and answer any questions. Every patient receives an individualized treatment plan designed with the goal of restoring their health safely and quickly.

Surgical treatment is considered a last option at ORA. That is why our specialists offer the latest advances in non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, to restore your muscle strength and range of motion or joint injections that reduce inflammation and pain at the injury site. However, sometimes surgery is necessary. Patients who require surgical treatment can consult with orthopedic surgeons who have extensive experience performing a variety of procedures, like minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries at our outpatient facilities.
