Sports Medicine

Sports medicine involves much more than treating sports injuries. It's a branch of medicine that helps athletes, weekend warriors and active people improve athletic performance, recover from injury, prevent future injuries and more.

Patients at OPA enjoy individualized care and the support of a whole team of sports medicine specialists all working get you back into and at the top of your game, including: 

  • Alaska's leading sports medicine physicians with advanced training, certifications and experience in the field — many of whom are athletes themselves. 
  • Physical therapists with extensive sports medicine experience and expertise to get athletes and active people back in action.
  • Certified athletic trainers working full time in the public schools and throughout the community to prevent and treat athletic injuries, coordinate follow up care, and work with coaches and parents to ensure safe return to play.
