We Treat Athletes
We treat athletes of all ages, and all levels and abilities, from beginner to elite.
We also treat athletes involved in a variety of sports, including but not limited to ice hockey, cycling, biking, weight lifting, skiing, walking, running…you name it! Dr. Vlach has a special interest in running-related injuries and enjoys helping injured runners return to their passion.
Dr. Vlach is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation with subspecialty board certification in Sports Medicine.
We treat an athlete as a ‘whole person’, maximizing health and function by addressing any health issues that might be contributing to or prolonging a sports injury.
I came to Dr. Vlach in a lot of pain. I’d been having issues for about three years. I’d seen several doctors, had blood tests, x-rays and several MRI’s. I was very depressed and losing hope. I could do none of my favorite activities. Now several months after my first visit, after PRP and acupuncture I have almost no pain if any on a daily basis and very little while doing activities. I am starting to return to the activities I enjoy. Thank you Dr. Vlach and the Eastern Idaho Spine and Sports Center!
