Benefit From Sports Acute Care Near Jeffersontown, KY

As an athlete, you put your body through significant physical stress, which increases your risk of injury—and that risk intensifies if you play a contact sport such as football, basketball, hockey, or soccer. Each year, approximately 8.6 million sports-related injuries occur in the U.S., affecting athletes of all levels. If you are sidelined with an injury, sports acute care can facilitate your safe recovery so you can get back to crushing the competition.

The experienced sports medicine specialists at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near Jeffersontown, Kentucky, provide personalized care for athletes with acute sports injuries. Many of our clinicians participate in sports themselves, so we know firsthand how frustrating it can be to have to sit on the bench—and why it is so important to receive specialized medical attention.

The first step of effective sports acute care is to evaluate and diagnose the injury. Our credentialed technologists perform X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans onsite, so our patients have convenient access to state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology in a comfortable setting.

Sports Injuries We Diagnose & Treat

The board-certified physicians at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic provide sports acute care for many common injuries, including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Achilles tendon ruptures
  • Cartilage tears
  • Tendinitis and bursitis
  • Labral tears and rotator cuff tears

What Does Sports Acute Care Involve?

After diagnosing your injury, we can create a customized treatment plan to get you back on the field. This may include:

Rest & Home Care

Taking sufficient time to rest is a critical part of healing. While you recover at home, you may benefit from applying ice packs and elevating your injured limb.


If you have a sprain, fracture, or dislocation, we may suggest a splint, brace, boot, or cast to keep your injury protected and positioned for proper healing.

Physical Therapy

By performing targeted stretches and exercises, you can gradually regain your flexibility, strength, and stamina, which can accelerate your recovery and enhance your competitive edge.


For most sports injuries, surgery is not a first-line treatment. But if you elect surgical treatment, you will be in the best of hands with our board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons.

If you require sports acute care, contact Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic today to make an appointment with a sports medicine specialist at our office near Jeffersontown, KY.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
