Sports medicine is the prevention and treatment of injuries related to participation in any and all

In order to be a sports medicine specialist, a physician must have significant specialized training in both the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. A sports medicine specialist helps patients maximize their function while minimizing disability and time away from sports, work, or school.

Can sports medicine physicians only treat competitive athletes?

No, sports medicine physicians are ideally suited to provide comprehensive medical care to non-athletes as well. They serve as an excellent resource for any individual seeking to join an exercise program or simply be more active. The same medical expertise used on competitive athletes can be applied to those "weekend warriors" and "industrial athletes" who experience an injury.
