What is a Sports Medicine Specialist?

A physician with significant specialized training in the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. Approximately 90% of all sports injuries are non-surgical; a Sports Medicine Specialist can maximize non-operative treatment and guide appropriate referrals. They can advise patients on proper nutrition, appropriate use of supplements, safe strength training and conditioning exercises, performance issues, and “return to play” decisions following illness or injury. A Sports Medicine Specialist can also guide non-athletes with exercise prescriptions for those wishing to increase their fitness and help patients achieve a healthy lifestyle.
