We have an unmatched expertise in treating sports injuries throughout the body.
One of the ways we serve our community at Wake Orthopaedics is by offering sports medicine to the athletes and sports teams in our area. Wake Orthopaedics is proud to be the team orthopaedists for the Carolina RailHawks soccer team, as well as a supporter of local athletic programs at Cary Academy, Trinity Academy, Athens Drive High School, the Raleigh Pro League, and Oak City CrossFit. We also offer a Sports Injury Prevention Program to athletes throughout the community.
To note: The following research was done on soccer players, however, the injury prevention exercises can be applied to decrease injuries in any sport.
Soccer is one of the fastest growing youth sports in the Raleigh area, and higher competition has led to an increased risk of knee injury. Although knee injuries in male and female soccer players are on the rise, research has shown that prevention programs can help decrease the incidence of suffering a major injury by up to 88%.
Wake Orthopaedics’ Elite Athletic Performance Program is a FIFA (The Fédération Internationale de Football Association) research-based sports injury prevention program for athletes in Raleigh, Cary, Garner, and beyond, developed by our licensed and specially trained physical therapists. Our program consists of exercises and sport specific agility drills that focus on coordination and proper technique.
