Sports Medicine

A sports injury can be devastating whether you are a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, and time is of the essence to ensure proper healing and a speedy recovery.

At Springfield Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Institute, we share a common goal with our patients, and that is to return you to the game you love as quickly as possible, pain free, and in your pre-injury condition. Whether you play a team sport like baseball or compete individually as a runner or golfer, you should be able to participate with unrestrained mobility.

Our orthopedic doctors treat athletes of all ages and fitness levels utilizing a comprehensive treatment approach to achieve optimal patient outcomes: alleviate your pain, heal your injury, and prevent reinjury. After diagnosing your condition, we develop a personalized treatment plan involving a combination of therapies that may include joint injections, physical therapy, and minimally invasive surgery.

Getting You Back to Your Game

When sprains, strains, or other trauma occur, our experienced orthopedic surgeons are dedicated to your complete recovery and return to play. We commonly treat fractures and other traumatic injuries as well as overuse conditions of the hip and knee, foot and ankle, shoulder and elbow, and hand and wrist.

Our orthopedists have helped many delighted patients overcome chronic conditions including tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, pitcher's elbow, and many more. Our skilled orthopedic surgeons frequently repair tears of the rotator cuff, patellar tendon, Achilles tendon, knee ligaments, and meniscus with great results.

Dr. Galluch and Dr. Thompson are board-certified and fellowship-trained sports medicine experts, currently serving as the team physician for Shawnee High School and Catholic Central. As athletes themselves, they have an even greater understanding of the impact sports injuries can have on you, both physically and mentally.

Let one of our sports medicine doctors help you return to the game you love sooner. Call us in Springfield or Urbana at (937) 398-1066 or request an appointment online today.
