Sports Medicine

The Sports Medicine Division at Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic features a specialized group of board certified practitioners and staff focused on meeting the diagnostic and treatment needs of both serious and recreational athletes. Collectively they understand the role activity plays in keeping a person fit and are dedicated to helping patients get back into their game.

We pride ourselves on our commitment to understand the goals and motivation "driving" individuals in their sports or performance activities. The group considers this essential in determining how quickly and what type of intervention is implemented, how performance and recuperation should be monitored and what comprehensive rehabilitation plan is right. The sports medicine team has as its goal the safe restoration of function as well as minimizing or preventing de-conditioning of unaffected anatomy or structures by neglect or inactivity.

Carrollton Orthopaedic Clinic physicians partnering with therapists from Southern Therapy treat athletes from West Georgia and East Alabama high schools. Dr. Greg Slappey serves as the team physician for the University of West Georgia Wolves. See the teams we treat.
