If you are a coach, a parent, a pro athlete, a weekend warrior, or just someone who wants to continue to be active even in later life, there are numerous benefits of seeing a sports medicine doctor. Whether your injury is due to a sudden accident, overuse or overtraining, a sports medicine doctor is the most effective way to treat these injuries and prevent more in the future.
Experts in Physical Activity
A sports medicine doctor has extensive knowledge in all physical activity, injuries, and how to prevent them in the future. They can help you improve and recover from an injury. They have specialized training in all the medical conditions of active adults and children, and their goal is to help you get active and stay active, especially if you sustained an injury.
Sports medicine doctors are on the cutting edge of the latest non-surgical and surgical treatments available for all conditions. Although their focus is on non-surgical, if surgery is needed, they will provide the most advanced treatment.
They are trained to educate you on how to properly prepare for exercise or a particular sport to help reduce the risk of injuries. They may focus on strengthening certain areas of your body that are vulnerable when playing a particular sport. This helps to stabilize all areas of your body, prevent injury, and avoid any injury recurrence.
New and Innovative Treatments
You can expect the most advanced treatments from a sports medicine doctor. Their goal is to shorten recovery time after an injury while keeping you in shape during recovery. Treatment options include cell based therapies, orthobiologics and minimally invasive procedures all designed to enhance mobility once you have healed.
