At Sports Medicine Oregon, we’ve worked tirelessly over the years to make sure the members of the Portland Timbers remain healthy and competitive throughout the grueling MLS season. Our very own Dr. Edelson is Chief Medical Officer and Head Team Physician for the Portland Timbers. Additionally, Dr. Greenleaf and Dr. Murphy currently serve as team physicians for the soccer club. Dr. Hamilton is the consulting hand surgeon for the Timbers and Dr. Trimberger is the team physician for the Timbers T2 Team.
Remember to show your support for the Timbers this weekend: the club faces off against Atlanta United in the 2018 MLS Cup! Despite the Timbers’ impressive season, Atlanta United FC appears to be the heavy favorites going into the showdown on their home turf, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta United FC is currently the second-ranked team in the Eastern Conference with a 21-7-6 record. The Timbers finished their season as the fifth-ranked team in the Western Conference, with an overall record of 15-10-9. The Timbers will be trying to take home the MLS Cup for the second time in team history and the Timbers club competing on Saturday will feature 8 players from that legendary 2015 MLS Cup championship team. The match is set for Saturday (December 8th) at 5 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
We like our chances this weekend! Onward, Rose City!
