Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:
TRIA and HealthPartners, in collaboration with other healthcare organizations and government agencies, have decided to delay all elective surgeries, procedures and non-essential radiology services during the coronavirus outbreak for the safety and care of our patients and team members. If you have an existing appointment, we’ll call you and help you reschedule. Urgent or emergent conditions such as fractures continue to be seen at TRIA sites. Patients should call ahead of coming in so we can properly care for you upon arrival.
Video visits are now available, making it safer and easier for you to get the medical care you need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. You’ll get the same personalized care, expert answers and treatment plans tailored to you as you do in an in-person visit.
For information on prevention, symptoms and what to do if you’re feeling sick, visit our COVID-19 information page.
Thank you for your understanding.
If you’re an active woman, you know how important it is to keep your muscles and bones healthy. But did you know that female athletes are more susceptible to certain sports injuries, like torn ACLs (anterior cruciate ligament) and stress fractures?
Women’s Sports Medicine at TRIA Woodbury brings together experts who treat active and athletic women of all ages and ability. Whether you’re a casual runner or a competitive triathlete, our specialists offer innovative, personalized care.
Care designed for female athletes
Most sports injuries aren’t related to gender. But there are some conditions that women are more likely to encounter. Our sports medicine physicians and physical therapists are experts in helping women stay at peak performance and manage injuries such as:
- ACL tears
- Kneecap pain and instability
- Stress fractures
- Maintaining bone health
- Keeping a healthy weight
- Concerns related to the female athlete triad
One team of experts for all your needs
Our women’s sports medicine team includes sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and athletic trainers. They have extensive experience caring for active women with conditions related to bones, joints and muscles.
We take a holistic approach to health and athletic performance. That’s why you can see a bone health specialist and a sports-trained registered dietitian right at TRIA Woodbury. And, as part of our navigator model of care, a navigator will walk you thought your entire visit. The navigator will make sure you understand your condition and the treatment plan tailored to your goals.
