Sports Medicine Specialists
What Can They Do To Help
A Sports Medicine Specialist has significant specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. The Sports Medicine Specialist helps patients maximize function and minimize disability and time away from sports, work, or school. Well trained in musculoskeletal medicine, Sports Medicine Specialists specialize in the non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Approximately 90% of all sports injuries are non-surgical...that is why non-operative treatment is often key to getting back to the field or workplace quicker. And if surgery or physical therapy is required, they can make accurate referrals to physical and occupational therapies or an orthopedic/sports surgeon.
