The Benefits of Visiting a Sports Medicine Physician
A sports medicine physician is a medical doctor – often a primary care physician or an orthopedic surgeon – who is uniquely trained to prevent, evaluate, and treat conditions that commonly affect athletes. These doctors may also be trained to provide sports psychology services as well as counsel on substance abuse and nutritional problems.
Visiting a sports medicine physician offers several benefits. For example, as a patient, you can receive:
- Highly specialized treatment to address the unique needs of an athlete
- Preventive care strategies to help keep you healthy as you play
- Coordinated care from physical therapists, rehabilitation specialists, and other specially trained professionals
