When residents of Reno, Carson City and surrounding Northern Nevada communities need world-class sports medicine, they know to turn to Swift Institute. Our team of board-certified physicians are proud to offer sports medicine to patients in need of medical assistance. Whether you have an old high school injury that never healed quite right or you managed to hurt yourself participating in organized or recreational sports, we’ll be able to help. We specialize in providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for a variety of common sports-related injuries and have a sterling track record of assisting athletes when they need it most.
At Swift Institute, we believe that sports medicine should always be first attempted conservatively. More often than not, the aftermath of injuries can be effectively managed with a comprehensive, personalized treatment plan that incorporates a variety of non-surgical methods like physical therapy and therapeutic ultrasound, or minimally invasive treatments like arthroscopy and orthobiologics. If, however, surgical replacement or repair is warranted, the sports medicine physicians at our clinic can perform a variety of procedures at an ambulatory surgery center in the Carson City or Reno area. This makes it easy for local patients to receive the care that they need close to home from a physician they know and trust.
Here are just a few examples of the types of conditions that our sports medicine physicians have experience treating:
- Shoulder rotator cuff injuries
- Shoulder dislocations and labral tears
- Knee ligament injuries (i.e. ACL, MCL, PCL)
- Knee, meniscus, and cartilage injuries
- Hip impingement and labral tears
- Hamstring injuries
