You don’t have to be an elite athlete to understand the negative impact an orthopedic injury or condition can have on your favorite activities. From weekend pickleball players to avid gardeners to high school and college student-athletes, the sports medicine specialists at Ortho Rhode Island care for active people of all ages, interests, and ability levels to help get them back to doing what they love.

Ortho Rhode Island’s sports medicine team is comprised of fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons and primary care physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers. These specialists collaborate to provide state-of-the-art care focused on the treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation of injuries and conditions related to sports, physical fitness, and exercise.

Our multidisciplinary approach allows our providers to create individualized care plans that are tailored to your activity goals, and to utilize leading-edge treatments, from the latest techniques in physical therapy to other nonsurgical therapies like platelet-rich plasma injections with Ortho RI Biologics.

And while we are dedicated to helping a wide range of sports medicine patients – including active people seeking improved exercise performance, individuals returning to full function from non-sports injuries, and people with disabilities trying to increase mobility – our team is also committed to the health of our local student-athletes. We’re honored to serve as the Official Orthopedic Partner of Rhode Island Interscholastic League, the Official Team Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Providers for the University of Rhode Island, Orthopedic care providers for Johnson & Wales University, and proud partners of Providence College Athletics.

So whether you’re looking to compete at the highest level or just trying to keep up with your grandkids, you don’t have to let orthopedic pain stand in your way. Learn how we can help you start your big comeback by scheduling an appointment with Ortho Rhode Island at 401.777.7000, or visiting
