Sports Medicine Physicians
Sports medicine physicians have a deep understanding of the musculoskeletal system. With specialized training in sport and exercise medicine, we devise treatment plans to return you to your activities as quickly and safely as possible. As sports medicine physicians, we treat athletes of all levels, ages and ranges of activity. We offer guidance for long-term fitness, intervention for acute injuries and treatment for chronic joint and muscle problems.
Sports medicine is not only for athletes. A sports medicine physician is also an excellent partner for anyone adopting an active lifestyle. We can guide you through proper training, technique and lifestyle modifications to help prevent injuries and set you on the path to wellness.
Sports Medicine Orthopedic Specialist
Orthopedic specialists focus on problems with the mechanical structure of the body. These experts treat bones, joints, ligaments, fascia, tendons and muscles. They diagnose the immediate area of treatment and identify the underlying factors that created the conditions for problems to develop. Modifying posture, training regimens, and other lifestyle factors can speed healing and prevent the injury from happening again. When designing a rehabilitation program, range of motion and returning to an active lifestyle are the focus.
Often, patients hesitate to see a sports medicine orthopedic specialist because they are worried about having surgery. Sports medicine orthopedic specialists have modern techniques that often allow for non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures. Surgery is still used when necessary, but it is not the first or only option for many conditions. With a special interest in the musculoskeletal system and advanced training in treating and preventing injuries, we can develop a treatment plan that treats the whole system. By addressing the functional issues that may have led to the current condition, we can help prevent both repeat and new injuries.
We see patients with all types of musculoskeletal injuries, including:
- Tendon tears
- Meniscus tears
- Ligament injuries
- Fractures and dislocations
- Sprains and strains
- Joint instability
- Complex shoulder and elbow conditions
- Complex hip, knee and ankle conditions
- Bursitis and epicondylitis
- Nerve entrapment
