Welcome to

Hendricks Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Our Practice

Our orthopedics and sports medicine physicians are devoted to the diagnosis, management, rehabilitation and prevention of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. This system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves that allow you to move, work and be active.

Who We Treat

If you aren’t a serious athlete, don’t let the term “sports medicine” deter you. Our sports medicine and orthopedic physicians treat athletes and non-athletes alike. “What I love about orthopedics and sports medicine is the patients and the variety of care we can provide,” says Dr. Ritter. “Orthopedic patients tend to be extremely motivated to regain their quality of life. People who are dealing with an injury or chronic condition that hinders their ability to move and do the things they love want something better in life. That enthusiasm is inspiring.”

Before seeking treatment, individuals with musculoskeletal problems may experience any number of symptoms including pain, discomfort, soreness, cramps, spasms, stiffness, loss of motion and weakness. Our sports medicine team helps to properly diagnosis and manage the issue through a comprehensive physical examination, personal consultation and diagnostic imaging. Depending on a patient’s plan for treatment, they work alongside our orthopedics surgeons, in addition to physical and occupational therapists and more, to provide a full continuum of care helping to safely heal and prevent further injury.

Throughout the year, our award-winning team hosts informative talks around the community to provide more information about our procedures and approach, as well as answer any questions you may have about joint replacement surgery.
