Sports Medicine

Bluegrass Orthopaedics is the largest orthopaedic clinic in central Kentucky, serving our community since 1983. Our doctors are fellowship-trained with years of experience performing and treating many different conditions, and sports medicine is a vital component of what we do. We’re proud to be leaders in the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports-related injuries. We’re dedicated to helping individuals and families at all levels of sport get back in the game. With campuses in Georgetown, Lexington-Richmond Road, and Lexington-Hamburg, we provide unmatched care to everyone from elite athletes to weekend warriors. In our facilities, patients are offered four businesses under one roof – physician medical office, physical therapy, MRI and outpatient surgery.

 

If you or your child has been injured in the course of playing sports or just in daily activities, contact our fellowship-trained physicians!

Athletic Training

At Bluegrass Orthopaedics, we recognize the importance of athletic training and its value to the communities in which we serve. Our athletic training outreach program provides professional healthcare coverage to a variety of organizations, including high schools, club sport programs, and weekend tournaments. Our team approach to this program is vital to its success – we utilize not only our Athletic Trainers, but also our Physicians and Physical Therapists. Central to this team is the Certified Athletic Trainer, a well-educated healthcare professional trained in the prevention, examination, recognition, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries that result from physical activity. Our Athletic Trainers collaborate closely with our physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions. In the state of Kentucky, Athletic Trainers work under the direction of a physician as prescribed by the state licensure statutes.

 

Why use Athletic Trainers?

Athletic Trainers provide medical services to all types of patients, not just athletes participating in sports. Athletic Trainers improve functional outcomes and specialize in patient education to prevent injury and re-injury. Preventative care provided by an Athletic Trainer has a positive return on investment for employers. ATs are able to reduce injury and shorten rehabilitation time for their patients, which translates to lower absenteeism from work, school, and sport and assist in the reduction of health care costs.

 

Community Outreach and Special Event Coverage

Bluegrass Orthopaedics has a sports medicine team that covers events such as youth sport leagues, games, and tournaments. This team consists of certified athletic trainers. Please email andrew.carlson@bluegrassortho.com for details.
