No matter the season, Coloradans of all fitness levels are doing their best to keep in shape. At UCHealth’s multiple Front Range locations, our sports medicine specialists treat both competitive and recreational athletes for sports injuries and related conditions.
Active people of all ages experience injuries from time to time. Our goal is to get you back on the go as quickly as possible. Our patients receive diagnostic tests and a physician’s evaluation on the same day in the same location. You benefit from a team of experts, including orthopedic specialists, radiologists, certified athletic trainers, and physical therapists.
UCHealth is the official health care sponsor of university athletics in Colorado, treating athletes from the CU Buffaloes and DU Pioneers. We also treat elite athletes from the Denver Broncos, the Colorado Rockies and other major league teams while our Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs is the official hospital for the U.S. Olympic Training Center.
