Patient Education


A full recovery is impossible without teamwork. That’s why we offer peer-reviewed patient education for many injuries. Each section includes an overview of the joint, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Doctors have written patient education on different physical injuries, and their peers in the medical field have reviewed it for accuracy, and for clarity for the patient. We included frequently asked questions and resources so you can be a partner in your health care. Patient Education and rehabilitation are important parts of getting you back to your favorite activities, so we want to give you all the resources you need to do it. Please read about your injury and the tips for making a complete recovery – it’s a team effort!
