Summer is on its way out, crisp fall days are ahead, school is back in session and so is the fall sports season. As a parent, you know that injuries can happen. From sprained ankles to knee injuries and broken bones, our team is prepared to handle a variety of common sports injuries in student athletes. Our long history of providing care to athletes of all levels, from high school and amateur to collegiate and professional, is the reason parents and students look to us. When your young athlete needs prompt care, count on our High School Sports Injury Clinic- where an appointment isn’t even necessary.
Common Injuries Treated:
- ACL tears
- Meniscal tears
- Ankle sprains
- Knee and shoulder dislocations
With many types of injuries, you should not put off medical care. If your young athlete suspects an injury, visit our clinic so Dr. DaSilva or Dr. Pierce can put them on the road to healing and recovery. Our goal is to provide a personalized plan and treatment, so that student athletes return to the sport they lovely in a safe and timely manner. Dr. DaSilva is a fellowship trained sports medicine specialist whose experience assisting athletes is expansive- from working as medical staff for the Chicago Bulls basketball team, Chicago White Sox baseball club, Chicago Steel hockey team, and the Chicago Bandits professional women’s softball team, to traveling internationally as team physician for U.S. Soccer. In his more than 35 years of practice, Dr. Pierce has covered the entire spectrum of orthopedic specialties and surgeries, including treatment of pediatric injuries. Dr. Pierce strongly believes in problem solving and open communication with parents, so that young athletes get the highest quality of care. With this type of experience and compassion leading our clinic, you can be confident that your child will be in good hands.
Our clinic does not require an appointment or referral. However, you may be able to minimize your wait time by calling us in advance to schedule a visit. Feel free to call us at 1-800-Rebound, and our team will do our best to make your consultation time work with your schedule.
Athletes under the age of 18 should be accompanied by their parent/legal guardian or athletic trainer. A signed note from parents consenting treatment and guaranteeing insurance, or a completed Authorization to Treat Form, may be used in a parent’s absence.
Injury prevention and safety knowledge is just as important for parents as it is for young athletes. There are two types of sports injuries: acute and overuse. Learn the differences between acute and overuse injuries, the common types of teen athlete injuries, and prevention methods here.
