Sports medicine involves diagnosing, treating, and preventing medical injuries or conditions in individuals who are active in sports. Our Physical Therapists and Athletic trainers are an integral part of the sports medicine team. Sports medicine focuses on health issues that are caused during or by playing sports. While sports medicine sounds like something only professional athletes need, it is also beneficial in treating children who play sports in schools or as extracurricular activities as well as adults who play sports recreationally. Sports medicine focuses on helping people reach their body’s maximum capabilities so that they can perform their best in the safest way possible. When an injury happens or a condition develops, sports medicine focuses on treating these issues so the patient can return to their original health and continue to play their sport.
