Sports Medicine Specialists

A sports medicine specialist focuses on the medical, therapeutic, and functional aspects of exercise and works directly with athletes to improve their overall sports performance.

The title of “sports medicine specialist” does not necessarily mean the specialist is a physician. It can be applied to any number of disciplines for which sports medical practices are used.

Sports medicine is not a medical specialty in and of itself. Rather, it implies additional training focused on the medical aspects of sports and exercise after foundational certification has first been achieved. Non-medical professionals involved in sports medicine include:

Physical therapists who help people recover from injuries
Certified athletic trainers who provide rehabilitative programs to help athletes regain strength and prevent future injury
Nutritionists who assist with weight management and nutrition in conjunction with physical training or recovery

Achilles tendon disorder/rupture

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury

Hip labral tear

Rotator cuff issues

Separations

Tennis & golfer’s elbow

Tricep/bicep rupture
