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
Tennis & golfer’s elbow

Dr.Mair and his staff and interns are the best orthopedic office I've ever been to.

Came to Dr. Marie (Mair) as a second opinion because I did not like the way I was treated at another practice. Dr. Marie (Mair) listened to my questions and gave me a wealth of knowledge to make an educated decision on what to do about my injury.
