WHAT IS A SPORTS MEDICINE PHYSICIAN?

Sports Medicine Physicians are doctors of medicine with significant specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. They are ideally suited to provide comprehensive medical care for athletes, sports teams, or active individuals who are simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Knowledge gained from treating athletes applies just as well to the treatment of non-athletes. Because the overall success of sports medicine involves returning a patient to the highest level of function, it can easily be applied to the treatment of those who are injured from car accidents, avid amateur athletics, and injuries common with the aging process such as arthritis and sprains.

Sports Medicine Physicians are an ideal starting point for diagnosis and treatment of injuries sustained during physical activities. They have a diverse network of health professionals to work alongside to create an optimal performance program for the patient. Since many injuries can be treated with non-surgical intervention, Sports Medicine Physicians often collaborate with Athletic Trainers, Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Physical Therapists, Sports Chiropractors, and Nutrition Management Physicians. However, if your injury or illness does require surgical intervention, a Sports Medicine Physician is specially trained to quickly identify these injuries and can often accelerate the referral to an orthopedic surgeon.
