CareMount Medical’s Sports Medicine department specializes in the non-operative treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal illness and injury. Our board-certified physicians offer continuing and comprehensive care for patients to maximize function and minimize disability and time away from sports, work, or school. Sports medicine specialists are not limited to only treating competitive athletes and sports teams. Our sports medicine specialists are excellent resources for individuals who are interested in adopting a more active lifestyle or beginning an exercise program.

Why choose a sports medicine physician?

Sports medicine physicians are unique in that they have expertise in comprehensive musculoskeletal evaluation and non-surgical treatment, as well as the specialized management of medical issues in the active population.

The advanced knowledge and training of the musculoskeletal system gives sports medicine physicians a better understanding of how an injury or illness in one part of the body can affect another part of the body. Therefore, sports medicine physicians have a therapeutic and diagnostic advantage.

More than 85% of muscle and joint injuries don’t require surgery. Sports medicine physicians have the highest level of specialization in providing non-surgical treatment for such injuries.

Sports medicine physicians also care for medical conditions that affect activity, such as asthma, arthritis, nutrition problems and poor fitness. They also advise patients on how to prevent injuries and become healthier.
