Innovative Treatments

  • Concussion Clinic: Traumatic brain injury is a serious concern for athletes. Our specially trained physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, also known as physiatrists, work closely with neuropsychologists and speech, physical and occupational therapists. For more than 20 years, we have been providing individualized treatment to promote healing and avoid further injury.
  • Injection Therapy: Both traditional and regenerative procedures are revolutionizing the treatment of muscle, ligament and joint injuries. For certain injuries, the use of prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, viscosupplements (i.e., cartilage injections), dry needling and Botox™ injections can speed up healing.
  • Physical Therapy: MetroHealth offers a variety of physical and occupational therapy services that can help any athlete feel better and stronger. Our highly skilled therapists develop personalized treatment plans to best meet each person’s needs.
  • Spine Injections: These procedures can diagnose or treat pain. And they can help your doctor determine exactly what's causing your discomfort and open the door for therapies to provide relief.
  • Surgical Treatment: When injuries require surgical care, our highly trained orthopedic surgeons use the latest techniques to speed your recovery and return you to your activities. These include minimally invasive techniques, such as arthroscopic surgery, fracture repair and ligament reconstruction. These techniques are paired with a personalized rehabilitation program.

Good news for weekend warriors: A recent study found that fitting in the recommended 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on Saturday and Sunday can help you live longer.

“The problem is,” says Heather Rainey, MD, a MetroHealth sports medicine specialist, “working out only on the weekend raises your risk of getting hurt.” Tendonitis, sprains and strains are common problems.
