How We Help

A primary care sports medicine doctor is like your family doctor but with special expertise and training in sports medicine. This type of doctor sees athletes as well as active people who have an injury or a condition preventing them from participating in their sport or activity, whether it’s football, running or pickle ball. A primary care sports medicine doctor will create a custom treatment plan, which may include medications, injections, a referral to physical therapy and other treatments.

Our Services

  • Sport- and injury-specific return-to-sport testing to ensure an optimal and safe return to activity, including our specialized program for performing artists and female athletes.
  • Consultatations on nutrition, supplements, and safety
