Columbus moves, and that means it has its fair share of aches and pains.
“Columbus is a very active community,” said Tim Dr. Von Fange, M.D. sports medicine physician. “We have two large high schools that are highly competitive in a number of sports, and then from a fitness standpoint, running, cycling and weekend-warrior sports all go on here.”
Sports medicine help is right in the neighborhood. “A lot of people think they need to go to Indianapolis if they have a young athlete who has an ACL tear,” said Eric Tannenbaum, M.D., orthopedic surgeon. “They might think a big city is better.”
But CRH offers doctors and medical staff with similar training and expertise without the hour long drive up Interstate 65. For example, before moving to Columbus, Dr. Von Fange served as the team physician at Marian University in Indianapolis.
The CRH Sports Medicine team includes 18 physical therapists, six athletic trainers, four occupational/hand therapists and three physical therapy assistants, as well as certified fitness instructors and personal trainers to get you back on your feet and moving.
