How orthopedics or sports medicine can help you
Orthopedic doctors help patients with injuries and conditions of the bones and muscles. Sports medicine doctors are specialists in helping active people return to the activities they love. Patients see either of these physicians when they have pains, aches, injuries, accidents or trauma to their bones, muscles, joints or limbs. The first time you visit us you may be evaluated by a physiatrist – a specialist who will diagnose you and decide to treat you directly, or refer you to a sports medicine specialist or orthopedic surgeon.
