What is sports medicine?
Sports medicine is the branch of medicine that specializes in preventing and treating sports injuries and illness that can result from athletics, physical training and the maintenance of an active, healthy lifestyle. Among the most common sports injuries are shin splints, runner’s knee, pulled hamstring muscles, Achilles tendonitis and ankle sprains. Our sports-medicine doctors work with athletes who have concussions, eating disorders, skin infections and performance issues.
