Pediatric Sports Medicine Experts

What is Sports Medicine?
Unsure if you or your child should see a sports medicine doctor? Our team offers diagnosis and treatment of injuries received or pain experienced as a result of physical activity, sports-related activities, or accidents. Examples include: ankle, knee, and shoulder injuries; muscle strains; joint dislocations; and overuse injuries such as tendonitis and stress fractures.
We also treat patients for non-musculoskeletal sports medicine problems such as exercise-related breathing problems, return-to-play decisions after illness, nutrition and performance assessment, and more.
