Originally from Rockwall, Texas; Dr. Andrew Freese specializes in Sports Medicine in all ages at AOA Orthopedic Specialists.

SPORTS MEDICINE PHYSICIANS ARE FELLOWSHIP TRAINED PHYSICIANS WHO BOTH TREAT AND AID IN THE PREVENTION OF SPORTS AND EXERCISE RELATED INJURIES. PAIN IS NOT ALWAYS AN APPROPRIATE INDICATOR OF INJURY SEVERITY WHEN IT COMES TO SPORTS INJURIES. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO SEE A PHYSICIAN IF THERE IS ANY PAIN OR SWELLING LINGERING FOR MORE THAN A WEEK AFTER A SPORTS INJURY. IT IS IMPORTANT TO TREAT SPORTS RELATED INJURIES EARLY AND CORRECTLY IN ORDER TO PREVENT ANY FUTURE OR ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS THAT MAY HAVE POTENTIAL TO OCCUR. AT AOA ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALISTS, WE HAVE MULTIPLE SPORTS MEDICINE TRAINED ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS, PHYSICIANS, PHYSICAL THERAPISTS, AND ATHLETIC TRAINERS WHO ARE UTILIZING TODAY’S MOST CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY.
