Sport Medicine

What is Sport Medicine?

Sport medicine is a branch of medicine dealing with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. Importantly, sport medicine is not just for professional athletes; anyone who gets injured during exercise or playing a sport can be treated by these physicians.

If you've recently suffered an injury and want to get back to your routine and athletic pursuits as soon as you can, you need the specialized care that only sport medicine physicians can provide. 

Speed up your recovery, maximize your performance, and prevent future injuries.
