Sports Medicine

Being healthy means being active. But being active can mean an occasional bump, bruise or injury. Our sports medicine team of experienced doctors, athletic trainers and physical therapists are dedicated to getting you back on the running trail, the bike path or the playing field.

Overview

Sports medicine is the practice of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.

Our expert staff provides training, prevention and rehabilitation. We emphasize the importance of early injury recognition and treatment in order to prevent recurring injuries. If you're a professional athlete, a fitness devotee, a weekend warrior or a student athlete, we are here for you.

What do you need to know about Sports Medicine?

No athlete, professional or weekend warrior, likes to be told that they have an injury that requires time off. The beautiful thing about seeing a medical team that specializes in sports medicine, like ours, is that they immerse themselves in the most up-to-date treatments of common athletic injuries to keep athletes active and participating in their sports.

Sports medicine clinicians do not want to take athletes from their activities; instead, they focus on using a team approach to treating and healing an injury while maintaining as normal an activity level as possible.

Here are a few tips to getting the most out of your sports medicine treatment:

  • Don't be afraid to see a sports medicine clinician - they will not hold you from activity unless absolutely necessary.
  • Don't expect a magic fix - most treatments require some effort and time.
  • Give the recommended treatment time to work - most treatments require at least two weeks for full results to be seen.
  • Schedule a follow up if the problem persists - don't give up if initial treatment doesn't work. This does not mean that your problem cannot be resolved, it just means a new course of treatment may be needed.
