We understand that upper extremity pain can keep you from living life to the fullest. We also know that your injury is unique, and treatment should never be one-size-fits-all. That’s why our team is focused on finding an individualized treatment plan designed for you. We utilize both non-surgical and surgical options, including regenerative medicine techniques such as PRP (plasma-rich platelet) and stem cell therapies.

To help you get back to your normal routine faster, we use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, leading to shorter recovery times and less scarring.


Rehabilitation is essential to regaining mobility and strength. Our comprehensive rehab services are here to guide you at every turn, supporting your recovery and working toward your goals.

To help you feel like yourself again, you’ll be guided by an expert multidisciplinary team, including physical therapists and sports medicine specialists. Your whole-person wellness is important to us. So we offer physical and massage therapies at 18 convenient outpatient locations across Central Florida to make it easy for you to get better, faster.
