Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

If you or your child gets injured during sports or physical activity, you may need to see a sports medicine specialist for treatment. Sports medicine focuses on helping you recover from injury or other medical conditions that may prevent you from engaging in exercise.

The board-certified orthopaedic surgeons and licensed physical therapists at Winchester Orthopaedic Associates have specialized training in musculoskeletal disorders, joint injuries, and other common conditions that may occur during sports.

They integrate physical therapy with sports injury treatment to help you recover faster, move better, and prevent future injuries.

How are sports medicine physicians different from other doctors?

Sports medicine physicians are orthopaedic surgeons or family care doctors with additional specialized fellowship training in sports medicine. Sometimes, orthopaedic surgeons may specialize in treating injuries in a specific part of your body, such as the knee, hip, shoulder, or back.

Since the team at Winchester Orthopaedic Associates boasts five skilled orthopaedic surgeons and 10 highly trained physical therapists, as well as a team of nurses and physician assistants, they offer expertise for every type of sports injury.  

While your family care physician can treat sports injuries, the range of specialized training in sports medicine that the team at Winchester Orthopaedic Associates possesses makes them an ideal choice for treating athletes and active people.

Additionally, some conditions may require surgery and physical therapy to restore normal movement to your joints.

What conditions does a sports medicine specialist treat?
