Sports medicine is a field of medicine that deals with injuries that are experienced during athletic endeavors and illnesses, emerging out of various types of sporting performances. Sports medicine offers a unique benefit for patients that don’t need surgery and would like help with activity related injury or musculoskeletal strains and sprains.
Sports medicine can benefit:
- Sportspersons, in various categories, and sports injuries.
- Patients with joint pain.
- Patients with injuries that may not be surgical.
- Minor or straight-forward musculoskeletal injuries like acute sprains and strains, overuse or training injury, or a chronic condition such as tendonitis.
After being evaluated, if it decided that you need surgery or to see another specialist such as podiatrist, physical therapist or orthopedic surgeon, you will be referred to those specialists for further care.
