Sports Medicine

Leading Sports Medicine Provider on the Western Slope

Colorado’s Western Slope provides many opportunities to engage in your favorite athletic activities. The mountains provide great hiking and biking trails, as well as great climbing surfaces. In the winter, you can stay active on the ski slopes. These outdoor activities, combined with the opportunities to participate in organized team sports, give you virtually limitless ways to maintain an active lifestyle.

Athletics are a great way to stay fit and healthy, and they provide a wide range of fun activities to fill your time. While the benefits of participating in sports are extremely worthwhile, it’s important to remember that in order to achieve peak performance, you’ll often be pushing your body to its limits. This increases the risk of injury.

Colorado Advanced Orthopedics is the leading sports medicine provider on the Western Slope. Our highly trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeons can diagnose and treat your injury, delivering the exceptional results you need to resume your active lifestyle at peak performance. Our team has the experience necessary to treat just about any sports-related injury you may have.

Sports Knee Injuries

The knee is the largest joint in your body, and also one of the most complex. It connects the two largest bones in the leg (the thighbone and shinbone), and is comprised of a variety of intricate structures, including bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Due to the complexity of the joint, the knee is highly susceptible to injury. This is especially true of athletes, since the knee often experiences trauma and overuse when you participate in sports.

Certain sports are harder on the knees than others, due to the harsh, sudden movements involved. When the knee twists, turns or stops suddenly, it creates an increased level of pressure on the knee joint. Too often, this can result in a serious injury. For this reason, football, basketball, skiing and running tend to result in a higher frequency of knee injuries than other sports.

Common Knee Injuries Caused by Sports
