Are you looking for a primary care doctor who specializes in sports medicine?
A primary care physician is a doctor who practices general medicine and is the first point of contact for a patient with any sort of medical concern. They perform annual checkups as well as diagnose and treat non-emergency medical needs. Many primary care physicians emphasize the importance of preventative medicine to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid contracting preventable illnesses or injuries. Sports medicine doctors are primary care physicians that are specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and conditions that result from athletic activity. They advise patients about pain management and managing longer term conditions that result from sports. Sports medicine physicians can also perform tests to determine if surgery is recommended for a patient and connect them with an appropriate surgeon.
