Frequently Asked Questions

Can sports medicine physicians treat non-athletes?

Although specially trained in sport, sports medicine physicians are musculoskeletal and performance experts, and can treat anyone from an elite athletes to active older adults.

What’s the difference between a primary care sports medicine physician and an orthopedic sports medicine surgeon?

Both are trained in the non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal injuries; however, the sports medicine surgeon is trained in the surgical repair of sports-related injuries. Often the primary care sports medicine physician and the orthopedic sports medicine surgeon work as a team alongside an athlete, parents/guardians and coaches to prevent injury, manage the athlete’s condition and develop a return to play plan.

How do I find a good sports medicine physician?

Look at the physician’s board certification. Also, determine if the physician completed a sports medicine fellowship or a fellowship in a particular body part, e.g. foot/ankle.
