MY Baptist Health
BAPTIST HEALTH Sports Medicine. Giving more Arkansans another chance at victory.
Nearly every athlete and active person has had that unfortunate moment. The instant when your body crosses
the line — the line between what your body can and what it cannot do. You sprain an ankle. Strain an
elbow. Or something more serious. You’re not alone. Nearly 7 million sports injuries are reported
every year. Good thing you have the ultimate MVP on your team. BAPTIST HEALTH Sports Medicine helps active
people return to the lifestyle they love.
Sports injury have you sidelined?
No matter how young and invincible you are, neglecting a sports injury can lead to serious consequences. Every
Saturday during the football season, BAPTIST HEALTH and OrthoArkansas are holding a sports medicine clinic
featuring orthopedic specialists who can help get you back in the game. The clinic is open to anyone.
A 24-Hour Athletic Trainer
An athlete’s hours aren’t exactly 9-to-5. That’s why professional athletic trainers are
on-call 24/7 to field your questions and concerns. (After all, who better to understand the aches of an athlete
than an athlete?) We’re just a phone call away at 1-888-BAPTIST.
Fast on Our Feet
Within 24-hours of your call for an urgent sports injury, you’re guaranteed to see a specialist. We
know that you want to get back at it as quickly as possible.
Access to Comprehensive Healing
There are hundreds of ways to care, and you find them all at BAPTIST HEALTH. From more than 80 places of
care, you have access to hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, rehabilitation therapy centers and more.
An Ounce of Prevention
Battling the Agony of Defeat Every Day
The only thing better than recovering from an injury is avoiding injury. BAPTIST HEALTH Sports Medicine
offers Fitness & Wellness Programs, Gait & Motion Analysis, and more ways to stay off the bench.
When RICE (Rest Ice Compression Elevation) is not enough, BAPTIST HEALTH Sports Medicine is there for
Arkansans who never, ever sit still.
