When to See a Sports Medicine Physician: Tips for Athletes in the Louisville, KY, Area

Sports Medicine Louisville KYAs 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.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
