Wake Orthopaedics: Sports Injury Prevention and Treatment

One of the ways we serve our community at Wake Orthopaedics is by offering sports medicine to the athletes and sports teams in our area. Wake Orthopaedics is proud to be the team orthopaedists for the NCFC Men's and NCFC Youth soccer team, and Grace Academy, as well as a supporter of local athletic programs at Cary Academy, Trinity Academy, and the Raleigh Pro League. We also offer free injury prevention assessments to all local youth athletes at the Middle and High School level. 

Sports Injury Prevention Program in Apex, Cary, Garner, Raleigh & Beyond

Injury prevention programs have proven to be effective at reducing the risk of injuries involving the hip, knee and ankle in athletes across a wide range of sports. Youth athletes that participate in injury prevention strategies at least one to two times a week are 50% less likely to sustain a sports related injury. At Wake Orthopaedics, we are proud to offer a free injury prevention assessment to all local youth athletes. These assessments are conducted at our Cary and Oberlin locations and consist of the following elements:

  • Strength and Flexibility Assessment
  • Running/Jump landing analysis
  • Agility Testing
  • Functional balance testing

All athletes will be sent home with a personalized injury prevention program that addresses their specific needs. For more information regarding the free injury prevention assessment, please feel free to contact Luke Hudson, DPT at or Dan Menday, DPT at
