Chicago Sports and Spine offers a comprehensive approach for those with sports related injuries. Our team consists of a sports medicine physician, physical therapists, and manual therapists. Our team will take a comprehensive history of the injury, perform appropriate physical exams, order imaging if necessary, and provided a custom tailored plan for the injured athlete. We evaluate and treat many sports related injuries including injuries to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, neck, low back, hips, legs, knees, ankles, and feet.
The team is lead by Dr Arayan who is a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. This type of physician is an expert in nerve, muscle, and bone and treats injuries that affect how people move. He also performed additional fellowship training in sports medicine and has covered various sporting events. Multiple treatments are utilized in the treatment of sports related injuries. Some of those treatments include non-surgical options for musculoskeletal conditions. Some of the treatments include medications, joint injections, trigger point injections, epidural injections, bracing, ergonomic recommendations, training alternatives and strategies, and therapy and exercise prescriptions. The ultimate goal is to maximize the patients function and return the athlete back to their activity.
Once a condition is diagnosed and a plan is made, Dr. Arayan will stay in contact with your therapists. The therapists at Chicago Sports and Spine will work with Dr. Arayan and keep him informed of the athlete’s progress. This team approach provides for a more customized treatment plan that will get the athlete back quicker to return to play.
Our therapy gym utilizes an array of exercise equipment and modalities to complement a patient’s therapy program. The therapists will initially work on pain reduction, then move on to restoring range of motion, next strengthening the affected area, and finally guide sport specific movements.
