You might not consider yourself a serious athlete, but your sports injuries are taken seriously at UK HealthCare Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine.

The sports medicine experts at UK HealthCare are known for providing treatment to the elite athletes at UK, but that’s not all we do. While many of our patients are competitive athletes, we also care for normal, active people who are injured while exercising or participating in a sport.

Whether you hurt your knee playing basketball at the gym, sprained your ankle while trail running, have pain in your shoulder after serving in your tennis league or playing pickleball, we’re here to help. The experts at UK Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine can diagnose your injuries, recommend treatment. We want to help you get back in the gym or on the field, court or track as quickly and safely as possible.

Convenient, One-Stop Walk-In Care

Don’t let an injury stop you from reaching your goals. The early-morning Sports Medicine Walk-In Clinic offers:

  • No appointment necessary
  • Convenient, early-morning hours — from 7 to 8 a.m., Monday through Friday
  • On-site imaging
  • Treatment for common sports injuries, including broken bones, ligament tears, and muscle sprains and strains

When you experience a sports injury, you have the chance to give up or get up. We’re here to provide you with a hand up to help you recover.
