Who Should See a Sports Medicine Specialist?

An injury can keep anyone from doing the things they love. The same expertise used for competitive athletes benefits patients who have sustained an injury from non-competitive activities. Sports Medicine physicians are ideal not only for professional athletes, but also active individuals and weekend warriors.

A sports medicine physician offers patients the specialization required to treat and prevent orthopedic injuries that do not require surgery. According to the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, approximately 90 percent of all sports injuries are non-surgical, and can be properly treated by a sports medicine physician.
