Sports Medicine

From competitive athletes to weekend warriors and fitness buffs, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital's Rehabilitative Services treat a wide variety of sports and activity-related disorders. Our techniques are biomechanically based—so that we treat not only the acute injury, but also the underlying cause that may have led to the injury. We focus on the whole individual, including injury management and injury prevention.

A functional-based approach emphasizes sport-specific rehab in order to return you to your highest level of activity possible. Types of injuries treated include:

  • Joint surgery
  • Muscle imbalances
  • Spine surgery
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Tendonitis
  • Tightness
  • Dance-related pain and injuries in our new Dancer's Maintenance Program
