Sports Medicine is a subspecialty that addresses prevention and treatment for all active people. At one time, specialists in this field primarily cared for the injuries of elite athletes. With today’s focus on physical activity as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle, Sports Medicine is now directed to serving anyone with musculoskeletal injury or pain who wants to be more active than his or her medical condition allows.
Sports Medicine specialists treat overuse injuries in individuals whose physical activities strain muscle groups, bones (stress fractures, shin splints), tendons, and ligaments.
Above all, Sports Medicine specialists are focused on lifelong fitness and wellness. They provide information and training for the prevention of illness and injury as well as treatment for conditions that limit physical activity.
