FAQ’s

Do I have to have a sports injury to use the Sports Medicine Clinic?

No. Although the clinic is staffed by physicians trained in dealing with sports-related injuries, we also see work related injuries, falls, overuse injuries, and spine problems.

Should I be seeing an orthopedic surgeon for my problem?

Most sports injuries are in fact not surgical, so the Hall Health Center Sports Medicine staff can be ideal to care for your problem. Our staff works closely with the orthopedic surgeons of UW Physicians and can refer you if necessary.
