Call to find a provider

Preparing For Your Visit

basketball playersDo I need a referral from my family physician to come to the clinic?
No, a referral is not required. We do however, ask that you make an appointment by calling 402-955-PLAY (7529).

When do I know it’s time for my child to see a sports medicine specialist?
Parents have great instincts when it comes to injury, their children, and when it’s time to see a doctor.

Beyond that, here are signs that indicate an appointment is warranted:

  • Child exhibits signs of a concussion (In severe cases, call 911 or seek immediate care at the Emergency Department)
  • Pain/swelling does not improve and/or increases in intensity despite standard treatment measures: rest, ice, compression, and elevation
  • Pain persists longer than 10-14 days
  • Pain continues despite rest, decreased activity
  • Pain resolved with rest but flares back up when activity resumes
  • Must take pain meds to train/compete without pain

Why not visit my primary care provider for a sports-related injury?
Primary care providers are great at a lot of things, but they are often less comfortable with musculoskeletal medicine, especially in children. Children's Sports Medicine is a specialty clinic to assess and treat adolescent sports-related injuries.
