When to See a Sports Medicine Physician: Tips for Athletes in the Louisville, KY, Area
As their title suggests, sports medicine physicians are uniquely trained to help athletes recover from sports injuries and maximize their performance. You don’t have to play for the Colts to consult with a sports medicine specialist, though. Anyone who enjoys participating in physical activity, from pick-up basketball to half marathons, can benefit from sports medicine.
Specifically, sports medicine physicians help patients recover from sudden musculoskeletal injuries (such as broken bones and soft tissue injuries that cause knee pain) and manage the effects of conditions like tendinitis and osteoarthritis. It’s typically best to begin treatment by consulting with your primary care physician. You may, however, want to consider seeing a specialist if your symptoms do not improve within a few weeks or continue to keep you on the sidelines.
