Sports Medicine

SportsMedicineSports medicine is a sub-specialty of orthopedics and focuses on injuries to the musculoskeletal system as they relate to athletes. Our practice is dedicated to the complete care of sports-related injuries, offering a comprehensive program of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.

Whether you participate in recreational athletics or exercise to stay healthy, you can count on the same expert, personalized care that we provide for professional and collegiate level athletes.

Dr. Bright McConnell, using the latest non-operative and operative treatments, helps patients regain function so they can quickly return to daily living, competition, and work. On the forefront of pioneering regenerative medicine treatments, Charleston Sports Medicine offers advanced healing treatment options for sports injuries.


Charleston Sports Medicine treats fractures, ligament injuries (sprains), muscle and tendon injuries (strains), knee, shoulder, ankle, elbow and other injured joints.

We treat people of all ages, for problems such as plantar fasciitis and tendonitis, ACL injuries, tennis elbow, as well as cartilage problems and disorders. Many problems can be remedied with conservative care, including correctional orthotic devices.

Our practice offers both X-ray and ultrasound technology in the office to diagnosis injuries. We use image guided injection therapies including:
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue
- Fluid supplements to cushion the joint and provide pain relief
- Joint and soft tissue cortico-steroids for muscle and joint inflammation
- Fat mesenchymal and bone marrow stem cells to promote healing and regeneration

The Charleston Sports Medicine team safely guides patients through the care and recovery of their sports medicine injuries. From elite athletes to daily living across the ages, we get you moving again.
