Sports Medicine

Our sports medicine orthopaedists treat the injuries for persons, of any age, who range from the professionally trained to those who simply enjoy athletic activities. We are the providers for many high schools and colleges throughout New Hampshire.

Drs. Douglas Moran and Patrick Casey are the team physicians for the NH Hampshire Fisher Cats, the Double A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.

WHAT IS SPORTS MEDICINE?

Sports medicine is concerned with the prevention and treatment of injuries and illnesses sustained during athletic or "active type" activities. The types of injuries that sports medicine physicians encounter can be divided into two groups.

  1. Major injuries are those sustained in an instant, such as a fractured leg or dislocated shoulder. They require orthopaedic care, such as setting a fracture or repairing a torn ligament.
  2. The second group is generally referred to as "overuse" injuries; conditions caused by repeated and excessive stress. Tendonitis and stress fractures fall into this category. Ideally, the athlete can continue with the athletic activity while under treatment, or at least return to the activity as quickly as possible. To aid in recovery and prevent recurrence of injuries, physical therapy is invaluable in stretching and strengthening muscles and other soft tissue surrounding bones and joints.


WHAT DOES A SPORTS MEDICINE PHYSICIAN DO?

Sports medicine physicians assess and treat musculosketal injuries using arthroscopy techniques. During arthroscopy, the physician looks into the joint with a tiny telescope through an incision no larger than a buttonhole. The telescope, which is smaller than the diameter of a pencil, sends back visual images displayed on a television screen through a miniature video camera.

A variety of joints can be operated on using arthroscopy: knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, hip. Little pain results from this kind of surgery, allowing most operations to be performed on an outpatient basis at our Orthopaedic Surgery Center. Cartilage and ligament tears in the knee, bursitis, shoulder dislocations, and rotator cuff injuries are all treatable using this technique. Even complex knee ligament reconstructions are routinely done using arthroscopy.

To our Patients, Families and Communities,

Your health, welfare & safety are paramount when you come for an appointment at any of our facilities. We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention regarding the spread of the virus. Our focus is to ensure we meet our patient’s needs while doing our part to keep you, our associates, and our communities safe. Effective immediately, the Acute Injury Clinic (AIC), will remain open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The AIC will NOT open on Saturdays.

At this time, the impact to our communities has been minimal and our staff is focused on providing the orthopaedic care our patients expect and deserve. If you have an appointment with us, we respectfully ask that you let us know if you have a fever, cough, and/or shortness of breath in advance of your appointment. Also, if you have recently traveled to or been in close contact with anyone who has traveled outside of New Hampshire, especially to New York State, we ask that you avoid visiting our practice for a period of 14 healthy days.

Thank you for your continued trust in COPA. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to support the health of our patients & employees.

Sincerely,
