Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is not just for varsity players and professional athletes. We treat patients ranging from “weekend warriors” to golf enthusiasts to dedicated runners. We treat a variety of sports-related injuries and provide non-surgical evaluation of orthopedic/joint issues.

We also provide vital information to help athletes of all skill levels avoid the most common sports injuries.

We treat several conditions, including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Concussions
  • Knee injuries (including ACL tears)
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis elbow
  • Joint injuries
  • Dislocations
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • “Burners and stingers”
  • Pulled groin
  • Torn tendons
  • Hamstring injuries

We also work with athletes to help them develop strategies to improve their performance.

In addition to practicing internal medicine at our Cary Medical Group office, Dr. Franklin is a board-certified sports medicine physician. He is now seeing patients at Raleigh Medical Group and Cary Medical Group, on a referral basis, for the non-surgical evaluation and treatment of injuries, sports-related complaints and orthopedic/joint issues.

Please let your nurse, physician or front office staff member know if you are interested in a referral to the Raleigh Medical Group or Cary Medical Group locations.

BLUE RIDGE ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECT: The City of Raleigh began a construction project in June to widen Blue Ridge Road. Most of the erosion control and tree protection is now in place, and clearing crews are working on tree and brush removal. During this work, there may be lane closures and traffic delays. Please allow yourself extra time to ensure you are on time for your appointment!  All construction updates can be accessed via "Blue Ridge Road Widening Project."
