Sports Medicine

Sports medicine physicians specialize in nonoperative treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and medical issues affecting athletes. Approximately 90 percent of all sports injuries require nonsurgical treatment. Sports medicine physicians are trained to treat these conditions, but they can expedite a referral to an orthopedic/sports surgeon when surgery may be indicated.

What is a sports medicine physician?

A sports medicine physician has a primary specialty in family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics, or physical medicine and rehabilitation. They obtain one to two years of additional training in sports medicine through accredited fellowship programs in sports medicine. Sports medicine physicians promote lifelong fitness and wellness, and encourage the prevention of injury and illness. They help patients maximize function and minimize disability and time away from sports, work, and school.*
