Whether you’re a serious athlete, weekend warrior or enjoy yoga or jogging, an injury can keep you away from the physical and mental benefits of your sport and exercise. The Sports Medicine specialists at Oakland Regional Hospital focus on getting you back in the game.
Sports medicine physicians have residency training in a specialty such as physiatry or orthopaedic surgery, and have gone on for additional training in sports or exercise medicine. They can evaluate and assess patients from many perspectives and coordinate and lead the care of an interdisciplinary team. At Oakland Regional Hospital, this team can include diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, orthotics, orthopedic surgery and more. They can also evaluate and advise patients on how to prevent injuries from occurring in the future, and for serious athletes, on achieving peak performance.
Sports medicine physicians treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems. They also coordinate care for chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as exercise-induced asthma or diabetes. Your team will work together to evaluate and treat you, with a focus on return to sport and preventing future injuries.
