Football season has been in full swing for over a month and if you’ve been to a few of the games in Southern Oregon, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Dr. Bents on the sidelines or in the stands. Paragon Orthopedic’s own Dr. Bents specializes in sports medicine and has taken an active role in Southern Oregon high school sports for the past 15 years. He has developed programs for high school coaches to prevent injuries, primarily ACL injuries, and consults with coaches about individual player health issues. After four years of being a team doctor at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, he brought his experience here. He regularly attends these games as a fan, but also to help if an injury occurs. Thank you Dr. Bents for giving your time and expertise to help our area youth stay healthy and continue playing the games they love!
