Sports & Lifestyle Medicine

Sports medicine is for anyone who enjoys an active lifestyle.

Not Just for Athletes

When most people hear the term sports medicine, they think of athletes and sports teams.

The truth is sports medicine is not just for athletes playing team sports; it’s also for anyone who enjoys an active lifestyle or wants to be more active.

Your Care Partners

ChristianaCare Sports and Lifestyle Medicine physicians are here to help you pursue your goals for athletics and physical activity. They can help you maximize your performance, prevent or recover from injuries, and overcome physical challenges you may face at home or work, such as the knee, shoulder, or foot pain. No matter what your activity – walking, bicycling, football, tennis, golf, lifting on the job, or running after your kids – we are ready to be your partner in maintaining good health and fitness and preventing injuries.

Why Sports & Lifestyle Medicine?

We are specialists who work with people of all ages to prevent and treat injuries that can result from athletics, exercise, or simply living an active, healthy lifestyle.
