What are the different methods of sports medicine?

Our sports medicine team employs a variety of advanced methods to ensure optimal outcomes for our patients. These include:

  • Minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery: This innovative technique allows us to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems within a joint without resorting to large incisions.
  • Regenerative medicine: Procedures such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy leverage the body's natural healing mechanisms to restore damaged tissues.
  • Physical therapy programs: We provide tailor-made therapy programs designed to help patients regain strength, mobility, and function after an injury.

Comprehensive care

We believe in a holistic approach to healthcare. Our patient-centered care extends beyond just treating the injury. We educate our patients about injury prevention, healthy lifestyle choices, and performance enhancement, ensuring they are well-equipped to maintain their health in the long term.

Sports Medicine FAQ

Do I have to be an athlete to benefit from sports medicine?

No, sports medicine isn't just for athletes. It also helps individuals who want to start a safe exercise program, improve their physical performance, or recover from an injury.

What conditions do sports medicine specialists treat?

Sports medicine doctors treat a wide variety of conditions, including acute injuries like sprains, strains, and fractures; overuse injuries like tendonitis and stress fractures; and other medical conditions that can impact physical activity, like asthma and diabetes.

How does sports medicine differ from physical therapy?

While there's overlap in the conditions they treat, physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients and restoring function after an injury or surgery. Sports medicine doctors, on the other hand, are physicians who can diagnose and treat sports or exercise-related injuries and can also oversee rehabilitation programs.

How long does it typically take to recover from a sports injury?

The recovery time for a sports injury can vary widely depending on the severity of the injury, the health of the patient, and the type of treatment used. Your doctor will be able to give you an estimated recovery timeline based on your specific situation.

Can sports medicine help with injury prevention?

Absolutely. Sports medicine specialists can provide guidance on proper techniques, training programs, and equipment to prevent injuries. They can also perform physical exams to detect any potential problems and offer early interventions.
