COPC Orthopedic Urgent Care

With the summer season's outdoor activities in full swing, it's important to keep our orthopedic urgent care in mind for sports related injuries. We treat patients 13 years and older for any acute musculoskeletal injury, including sprains, strains, tendonitis, lacerations, fractures and concussions. You can call ahead or walk in to be treated from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Pediatric Overuse Injuries

We strive to provide a wide range of care to provide specialized care for our patients of all ages. For pediatric patients, it’s common to see overuse injuries in children that intensely participate in sports. We have written an article that outlines the types and causes of overuse injuries found in children.

Mallet Finger

Have you ever “jammed” your finger on a ball? Sometimes, what seems like a minor injury can actually be fairly serious. To learn more about the other causes of mallet finger and the treatment plans that our practice offers for this condition, check out our article.

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition that occurs on the outside of the elbow that can have a major impact on your quality of life. To learn more about the causes and treatments of tennis elbow, read our article!

Iliotibial Band Syndrome

Iliotibial band syndrome, also known as ITB syndrome, is described as the pain in the lateral side of the knee. We have written an article to teach our patients more about this condition and how we can help treat it. If you are interested in learning more, click the button below to read our article!

Obesity and Osteoarthritis

At COPC Sports, Spine & Joint we recognize the strong relationship between obesity and osteoarthritis of the knees and how it can impact our patients. Because we stress the importance of weight loss as a means of combating osteoarthritis of the knees, we have collected a few informative statistics that we want our patients to know about.

Practice Overview


We have changed our name!

Welcome to COPC Sports, Spine and Joint!  Because our practice has changed over the past years to encompass so much more for our patients, we found this to be the perfect time for a fresh name that better defined our services. We provide consulting, testing, and specialized care of musculoskeletal disorders affecting the spine and extremities. Combining clinical knowledge with diagnostic testing such as EMG / imaging (MRI - CAT scanning), along with treatments such as lower back epidural steroid injections and rehabilitation procedures utilizing physical therapy, we provide long term conservative management of spine problems. Our EMG and conduction testing looks for carpal tunnel syndrome, "pinched" nerves in the neck or lower back, or underlying diseases of the muscles and nerves.


Our group also has on staff a physician who is board certified in Interventional Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology. Dr. Kort Gronbach is a strong advocate for compassionate care balanced with minimizing drug dependence that has troubled our state. He has dedicated himself to minimally invasive spine techniques to diagnose and treat painful conditions and places an emphasis on empowering patients to rehabilitate and recover. 



Prescription Policies and Information

Prescriptions and refills will be handled at scheduled office visits and enough medicine will be prescribed to last at least until the patient’s next appointment. Since we expect to fill prescriptions at the office visit, running out may be a signal that it is time to call our office to schedule an appointment. We request patients be seen annually for routine medication refills. If your prescription insurance plan requires a prior authorization for a medication, you will be responsible for obtaining a Prior Authorization Form from your insurance company for your physician to complete.  While our office staff and physicians do their best to help patients obtain their maximum prescription benefits, insurance plans, including drug coverage plans, are a contract between the patient and the patient's insurance company. 

If you need to change pharmacies or change your prescription to mail order, the law in the State of Ohio permits non-expired prescriptions to be transferred to the new pharmacy without charge or interruption. In the case of most mail order pharmacies, they disregard this provision and require prescriptions to be re-written. In the event that this is preferred by the patient BEFORE their next routine visit, the patient has a couple of choices:

  1. Make an appointment to see the doctor for repeat refills
  2. Wait for their next regular visit to change pharmacies
  3. Pay a fee for the patient's physician to review their medical records and re-write the prescription - which will then need to be picked up at the office. Lost prescriptions for controlled medications (such as pain medications, sleeping aides, etc.) will not be replaced.

We discourage the practice of calling in prescriptions as it does not allow the patient or the doctor to re-evaluate the appropriateness of the prescription, and follow the condition for which the medication has been prescribed. We do not accept calls from pharmacies to refill medications. When pharmacies call us, we request contact directly with the patient.
