Sports Medicine Overview:

Even the safest of athletes can sometimes encounter an injury that can leave them watching from the sidelines. Not only can this be painful, but it can take a great toll on your mental state. Injury prevention is an area of focus for our entire staff.  If an injury does occur, we’re here to make sure that you’re able to continue doing what you love.

When an athletic injury happens, the first thing on the mind of the athlete is to get back on the field, court, or track in the quickest amount of time. Sports medicine doctors are specially trained to restore that function to patients and get them active again as soon as possible. These injuries can range in severity, from ankle sprains to knee and shoulder injuries, but the doctors will help you gain strength and work with you to prevent further injuries from occurring.

Because sports injuries can occur anywhere in the body, symptoms can vary. It’s important to contact a physician whenever an injury or accident occurs so that you can get the best treatment as quickly as possible.
