Pullman Regional Hospital and Inland Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine Clinic have hired sports medicine physician Jesse Shaw to help expand access to sports medicine.

Shaw will see patients for sports medicine related injury diagnosis and treatment at Inland Orthopaedics of Pullman and student athletes on the Palouse, according to a press release from Pullman Regional Hospital. In addition, Shaw will help diagnose and treat ankle and foot related injuries, degenerative joint diseases and nerve inflammation.

Shaw said he is drawn to the sports medicine field because he likes to work with his hands and fix injuries, according to the press release.

Shaw said patients should know they should not wait to get care if they need it.

“People should seek care as soon as their functionality is impacted,” Shaw said. “Delaying care only makes the road to recovery longer.”

Shaw received his bachelor of science in biology/psychology at Juniata College and attended medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, earning a doctorate of osteopathic medicine.

In addition, Shaw has prior military service in naval special warfare, providing evaluations and treatment. Outside of work, Shaw enjoys spending time with his family, watching sports and exploring the outdoors.
