Sports Medicine Multimedia
Sports medicine, from a primary care sports medicine physician, is specialized care for competitive or recreational athletes and active individuals facing athletic injuries and issues.
Problems and concerns treated include, but are not limited to, simple fractures, sprains, strains, overuse injuries, concussions, nutrition, injury prevention, and return to play decisions. With 90% of sports-related injuries being non-surgical, a primary care sports medicine physician's expertise is often the best choice for non-operative care for athletic injury.
