At SportONE, a division of Orthopaedics Northeast (“ONE”), you’ll find physicians who are trained to treat any orthopaedic condition, but are also fellowship trained in Sports Medicine. A “fellowship” is an extra year of training in a specific discipline, which takes place after medical school and residency. The fellowship has a large emphasis on clinical treatment, and gives the physician access to the newest innovations in surgical techniques and medical devices.

SportONE physicians concentrate their practice on Sports Medicine injuries, and treat a multitude of shoulder and knee injuries, sprains, strains, broken bones, torn ligaments and damaged tendons. Because they see these issues all day long, they have unsurpassed proficiency in developing treatment plans for sports injuries.

Within the field of sports medicine, there are several areas of treatment and specialization, such as clinical medicine, orthopaedics, exercise physiology, biomechanics, kinesiology, physical therapy, athletic training, massage therapy, sports nutrition, and sports psychology.

Sports Medicine doctors are usually orthopaedic physicians, often surgeons, who treat a wide range of athletic and recreational injuries. Because athletics and sports have become increasingly popular, it has become important that they use the latest medical advances so the injured athletes may return to their sport as quickly and safely as possible.

Education and experience are the best ways to choose a sports medicine doctor.

Definition: The certified athletic trainer (ATC) is a highly educated and skilled professional who specializes in prevention, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of injuries that occur during sport or physical activities.

A certified athletic trainer usually has a bachelor’s degree in athletic training, health, physical education or exercise science. They must also pass a certification exam which proves their skills and knowledge, followed by a rigorous program of continuing education, so they stay current with medical practices and maintain licensure.

There are 28 certified athletic trainers on the SportONE staff, who have assignments at Fort Wayne area high schools and colleges. SportONE Certified Athletic Trainers work under the direction of SportONE physicians, and work very closely with school athletic administrators, coaches and parents.

At “ONE”, you’ll find orthopaedic physicians who are trained to treat any orthopaedic condition, but each also has received EXTRA training in a specific area, like joints, feet, hands, spines or sports medicine. Foot&AnkleONE, HandONE, JointONE, SpineONE and TraumaONE are other divisions of Orthopaedics Northeast (“ONE”), with fellowship trained physicians to treat those respective parts of the body. In addition to treating routine cases, they are experts in performing complicated procedures in their area of concentration, making them “super specialists.” They may be just the physicians for your unique needs.
