As an athlete, you want to know that the next time you step up to the plate, the tee box, the ring, the court, or the field, you are performing at the top of your game. Whether you are a professional or amateur, your ability to perform and your physical fitness is important to you.
Being an athlete means you require high energy, strong muscles, and functional joint movement. An injury, even a minor one, can take a toll on your performance and can lead to more serious injuries in the future. This happens because athletes tend to push through their discomfort and ignore the signs their body is giving them. We work with our athletes to treat their pain, increase their performance, and actually decrease the risk of injuries in the future. Our goal is to maintain you at your peak performance level whether you are in training or competing.
What is the Difference Between a Sports Medicine Doctor and a Traditional Medical Care Provider?
Your primary doctor has a broader range of medical knowledge when it comes to how your body functions. This is helpful in most cases where the health concern is small. However, when it comes to things like sports injuries or chronic pain, a sports medicine doctor is more qualified to treat you. We focus on athletic conditions in the musculoskeletal system. We treat acute and chronic injuries for amateur and professional athletes.
Why Should You Contact Our Sports Medicine Doctors?
You may be wondering if seeing a sports medicine doctor is the right choice for you. There are many reasons athletes come to our clinic for treatment.
Active Lifestyles: Many people may not participate in organized sports, but are still athletes. Anyone with an active lifestyle can benefit from our clinic. If you workout on a regular basis, being proactive with your physical health can prevent future injuries, increase your overall performance, and help you achieve your personal goals.
Amateur Vs. Professional: You do not have to be a professional athlete to benefit from our sports medicine services. As an amateur athlete, you should consult with us about any pain or injuries you have experienced. This can also mean the difference for an amateur who wants to become professional.
Current Injuries: Whenever your injury occurs, we should be the first clinic you contact. Our specialized treatment is going to be much more effective than what your primary care doctor can provide you with. The sooner you treat your injury the better.
Chronic Pain: If you are dealing with chronic pain, you understand what a physical and mental toll it takes on you. We can treat your chronic pain with non-invasive techniques and keep you away from addictive medications.

What is the difference between a Sports Medicine Physician and an Orthopedic Surgeon?
Orthopedic surgeons are doctors who specialize in the musculoskeletal system. This includes your bones, ligaments, joints, tendons and muscles that are essential to movement. Although we share the same knowledge, unlike orthopedic surgeons, we specialize in providing our clients with non-surgical options for musculoskeletal conditions. Most injuries do not require a surgical procedure. We are qualified to diagnose you and determine what the best treatment plan is for you.
We treat all types of musculoskeletal problems and athletic injuries:
Common examples of acute injuries are things like muscle strains, factures, knee injuries, shoulder injuries and ankle sprains.
Common examples of overuse injuries include tendonitis, stress fractures and rotator cuff problems.
These are head injuries that range from mild to traumatic.
Acute and Chronic Issues
This can include asthma or infectious mononucleosis.
