Sports Medicine Non-surgical Treatment

Sports Medicine Physicians specialize in the medical diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Approximately 90% of all sports-related injuries are non-surgical, and Sports Medicine Physicians specialize in assessment and management of non-operative musculoskeletal injuries.  Common conditions treated by Sports Medicine Physicians include:

  • Acute injuries (such as ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee & shoulder injuries, and fractures)
  • Overuse injuries (such as tendonitis, stress fractures )
  • Mild traumatic brain injury and other head injuries
  • Athletes with chronic or acute illness (such as infectious mononucleosis, asthma or diabetes)
  • Nutrition, supplements, ergogenic aids and performance issues
  • Exercise prescription for patients who want to increase their fitness
  • Injury prevention
  • "Return to play" decisions in the sick or injured athlete
  • Strength training and conditioning
  • Healthy lifestyle promotion

Sports Medicine Physicians also specialize in coordinating care with other members of the patient's sports medicine team include physical therapists, primary care physicians, Orthopaedic surgeons and other medical specialties, athletic trainers and other ancillary personnel of specialty care and rehabilitation.
