What Is Sports Medicine?

 

A sports medicine doctor is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat injuries that occur while playing sports.  Sports medicine is a special are of medical practice that focuses on injuries sustained from athletic activities ranging from recreational activities to professional athletes.

It begins with prevention.  Education in the prevention of injuries is the key!  Conditioning, stretching and mental focus are all components in the preparation for any type of athletic endeavor.  

Sports medicine doctors often treat athletes with sprains, strains, and tears, back pain, knee and shoulder pain and injuries to any of the major joints.  Regardless of how well you train and condition, injuries can happen.  

Consultation, examination and imaging are part of most evaluations with our sports medicine doctors.  Diagnostic Imaging may include x-rays and MRIs.

For less serious injuries, conservative recommendations and specific indications for physical therapy or acupuncture may be recommended.  Moderate injuries may require prescription or non-prescription medications, and injection therapies to treat the pain and reduce swelling and inflammation.  Serious or severe injuries may require surgery to repair.
