Sports Medicine

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports medicine focuses on the treatment, recovery and prevention processes of musculoskeletal injuries for athletes and is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.  These specific types of physicians undergo rigorous training in musculoskeletal injuries, making them more than qualified to provide proper diagnoses and treatment options for sports-related injuries.

Just For Athletes?

While most people tend to think sports medicine is strictly for athletes.  It is ideal for non-athletes as well.  It’s a form of medicine that focuses on helping individuals recover from current injuries, while also helping to prevent future injuries.  Significant advances in techniques have provided substantial data that sports medicine can also be applied to typical musculoskeletal injuries.

Wonderful Client Feedback

Dr. Diehl always listens and takes the most conservative approach for the injury rather than surgery first. He’s taken care of several of my sprains & falls. Highly recommend.


I really like Dr. Maurer. He is so down-to-earth and honest. I’ve learned to trust his advice and guidance because he cares about his patients.


Scheduling was quick, office staff was friendly and efficient and nurse and x-ray tech were friendly and thorough. Dr. Lessner was prompt and friendly. He made us feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and thoroughly.


This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!


Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!


Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.
