Sports Injuries & Sports Medicine
What is Sports Medicine?
Playing sports, exercising and living an active life are all healthy forms of physical activity that can benefit your health in a countless number of ways. Participating in physical activity can also make you more prone to sports injuries, especially when participating in sports and physical activities on a regular basis. For this reason, it is important to work with a Sports Medicine Doctor who understands the multiple aspects of Sports Medicine, including:
- How to properly take care of your body to prevent sports injuries
- Signs and symptoms of a sports injury to look for to determine if treatment is needed
- How to take care of an old sports injury or recurring injury due to a chronic condition
