Much as you may rely on your team to get you a win in sports, here at the UT Health Austin Sports and Injury Clinic, you are an active part of your personalized sports health care team. Whether you are a weekend warrior, professional athlete or Saturday morning walker, you receive the expertise of providers who specialize in sports injuries and health, dietitians, chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons and nurse practitioners. Your care is tailored to your needs to help you stay healthy and stay in the game.

Common conditions and injuries we diagnose and treat:

  • Our team of providers specialize in diagnosing and treating athletic injuries including: sprains and strains, ligament and tendon tears, fractures, dislocations, multi-ligament injuries, tendonitis, joint injuries, injuries that require surgical intervention and more.

Our approach:

  • For some patients, nonsurgical interventions such as lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, medication and injections can help improve pain and function, while surgery may be the best course of action for others. Whatever your needs, our team is here to listen and work with you to develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Our goal:

  • Here at the Sports and Injury Clinic, our goal is to provide you with comprehensive, whole-person orthopedic care to help you meet your goals and get back to the activities that are important to you.
