Expert Medical Guidance for Local Sports Teams

Whether you are on a sports team or a weekend warrior, you can trust you are getting state-of-the-art sports medicine care at Penn Highlands. Our sports medicine doctors provide medical guidance and care for teams throughout central Pennsylvania at every level from elementary school to college. And they offer that same expertise to every patient, regardless of where or how your injury or overuse condition occurs.

Innovative and Advanced Sports Medicine Care

You don’t have to leave central Pennsylvania or travel out of state to get some of the nation’s leading sports medicine care. At Penn Highlands, our sports medicine specialists provide the most current medical care for sports injuries and are even helping develop new treatments.

Dr. Matthew A. Varacallo, medical director of Orthopedic Robotic Surgery at Penn Highlands Healthcare, helped pioneer a new procedure to repair torn anterior cruciate ligments (ACLs) and prevent reinjury. Named to the “Top 65 Total Knee Replacement Surgeons to Know” by Beckers’ ACS Review, Dr. Varacallo is one of only two surgeons in the US using the advanced Fertilized ACL technique. The technique helps patients recover faster and prevent reinjury by expediting the healing of bone tunnels, which are a common phenomenon after ACL reconstruction. Read more about this innovative procedure.

You don’t need to travel far in central Pennsylvania to find an expert sports medicine doctor. Ask your primary care provider for a referral to a Penn Highlands specialist or find a sports medicine doctor or orthopedic doctor near you.

A Team Approach to Activity Injuries

If you’ve been injured playing a sport or have musculoskeletal pain, you don’t need to spend time trying to figure out the best place to go for care in central Pennsylvania. Whether you seek care in an emergency room, urgent care clinic, or schedule an appointment with one of our sports medicine doctors or orthopedic surgeons, you will get the care most appropriate for your condition through our team approach.

Our expert sports medicine doctors evaluate and treat all types of injuries and conditions, from muscle strains, torn ligaments, overuse conditions, and broken bones. They can provide a wide variety of treatments and work closely with Penn Highlands orthopedic surgeons, pain management experts, and orthopedic rehabilitation to get you the right care at the right time.

What Conditions do our Sports Medicine Doctors Treat?

A sports medicine doctor is a physician who specializes in caring for athletes of all abilities, whether you play a competitive sport, exercise for enjoyment or health reasons, or have an active or strenuous job. Doctors who specialize in sports medicine most often deal with injuries and conditions that affect the bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. That can include acute injuries like ankle sprains, muscle and tendon tears, fractures, and knee injuries such as a torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament). But an orthopedic sports medicine doctor also treats overuse injuries and conditions such as knee pain, tendinitis, rotator cuff syndrome, and golfer’s or tennis elbow.

Another type of injury a sports medicine doctor treats is concussion. A concussion, or traumatic brain injury (TBI), is common in contact sports as well as those where an athlete can get hit in the head with a ball, stick, or racquet. But they also are common in adults as a result of falls, even minor falls such as when someone trips. At Penn Highlands Healthcare, we have a dedicated Concussion Clinic to assess and manage concussion injuries. We also offer ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive) Testing to athletes. This assessment, done before a sports season, provides a baseline measurement that can help track recovery if an athlete does get a concussion.

At Penn Highlands, our sports medicine doctors treat all types of activity-related injuries and conditions. Some of the most common injuries we see are:

  • Ankle sprains
  • Concussion
  • Golfer’s or tennis elbow
  • Injury prevention
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Stress fractures
  • Tendinitis
  • Torn ligaments

Can Sports Medicine Help Prevent Injuries?

You don’t have to wait for a health condition or an injury to occur before seeing a sports medicine doctor. A sports medicine doctor can evaluate your flexibility, balance, strength, and musculoskeletal structure to determine if you are at increased risk of injury. They can then create a preventive treatment program that may include measures such as physical therapy, taping, or specialized stretching routines to help strengthen weaknesses and prevent injury. These treatments also can help patients achieve higher levels of performance because they are stronger, more flexible, and better balanced.

Often, activity-related conditions can re-occur. Orthopedic rehabilitation is extremely important to not only helping you recover following a sports injury or orthopedic surgery, it also can help you avoid reinjury.In addition to injuries, sports medicine doctors help athletes with chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, and some heart conditions, to manage their condition safely while involved in athletic activities. Your Penn Highlands sports medicine doctor will work closely with your primary care physician or pediatrician to optimize your health and performance.
