Dr. Rudy J. Ellis Sports Medicine Center

The Dr. Rudy J. Ellis Sports Medicine Center was established in 1981 to provide accelerated rehab for acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries to patients in the Louisville area. Our physical therapists (PT), certified athletic trainers (ATC), and physical therapy assistants (PTA) are trained in the treatment of a wide variety of orthopaedic procedures including ligament reconstructions, cartilage resurfacing/implantation, labral repairs of the hip and shoulder, fractures, sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, as well as other orthopaedic injuries. They use a wide range of modalities and therapeutic techniques to expedite your recovery after an injury or chronic condition. Our staff is trained in kinesiology taping, dry needling, cold laser therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, Graston technique (soft tissue mobilization), Primal Reflex Release Techniques (PRRT), Functional Movement Screen (FMS), and mechanical traction for the neck and back. We also provide clinical outreach to many high schools within the Jefferson County area. We employ six certified athletic trainers who spend time helping injured athletes in Louisville involved in a number of sports throughout the year.

We have two locations currently serving the Kentuckiana area. The East End location is on the first floor, Suite 100, at our Eastpoint facility off Old Henry Road and the Gene Snyder Freeway. It is open 7:30 am-6:30 pm Monday-Thursday and 7:30 am-5:30 pm on Friday. Our Dixie Highway location is in The Dixie Building, on the first floor, Suite 102. This location is open 7:30 am-6:00 pm Monday-Thursday and 7:30 am-5:30 pm on Friday. After your initial evaluation, we can set you up on a free app to help you complete your home exercise program by watching videos on your smart phone, tablet or computer. We utilize "My Rehab Pro" to get our patients better outcomes with PT. Check out www.myrehabpro.com

Appointments can be made at either office by calling directly or via a faxed order request.

EFFECTIVE 2-1-2020

We understand that life can be busy. Our goal is to schedule patients who need our care as quickly as possible. In an effort to achieve this goal, we have changed our policy regarding no-shows.

If you are unable to make it to one of your appointments, we ask that you give us at least 24 hours notice so that we may offer that appointment to another patient. You will receive a reminder text or email 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you need to cancel, please respond.

In order to keep appointment slots available for all patients,patients who no call/no show to two (2) appointments will have all future scheduled appointments cancelled.

Our office will call to reschedule future appointments for a time that is convenient for you.

We appreciate your cooperation!
