In addition to normal check-ups at the doctor’s, athletes need to have a team of specialists on hand to assist with sports-related injuries, recovery, and training. Luckily for Lexingtonians, we have UK HealthCare Sports Medicine to help athletes of all ages in our community. (Hint: Athletes, you’re going to want to bookmark this page.)
Their team of physicians, trainers, and physical therapists help athletes, weekend warriors, and active individuals of all ages stay in the game. How? We’re glad you asked.
Their sports medicine specialists and fellowship-trained surgeons are world-renowned for developing and implementing leading-edge techniques to diagnose, treat, research, and educate patients about bone and joint disorders. Thanks to their excellence, UK HealthCare has earned the title of the official sports medicine provider for the Lexington Sporting Club, UK Athletics, Georgetown College, EKU, Fayette County Public Schools, + others.
The UK HealthCare team also offers excellent resources to support Lexingtonians throughout the season, including:
- Expert guidance: Find podcasts for parents, coaches, and active adults to dive deep on injury prevention, concussions, pain relief, and nutrition.
- Full range of injury care: Take advantage of UK HealthCare’s Sports Medicine specialist’s full range of care for adults and children, which includes initial injury assessment, medical treatments, and if necessary, surgery, and sports rehabilitation, by calling (859) 218-3131 to schedule an appointment.
- Walk-in care: Injuries do happen, which is why UK HealthCare Sports Medicine offers two walk-in clinics, one in Lexington and the other in Georgetown, that specifically cater to athletes (elementary school-aged children to older adults with active lifestyles).
Visit the UK HealthCare Sports Medicine Walk-in Clinic for urgent sports injuries Monday through Friday from 7- 8 a.m. at UK HealthCare-Turfland (2195 Harrodsburg Rd.). If you’d like to make an appointment with a Sports Medicine specialist, call (859) 218-3131. Learn more.
