Sports injury medicine focuses on helping people improve their athletic performance, recover from injury and prevent future injuries.
Some think of it as primary care for the injuries of elite athletes. With today’s focus on physical activity as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle for the entire family, sports injury medicine is now directed to serving anyone with musculoskeletal injury or pain who wants to be more active than his or her medical condition allows.
At Michigan Sports & Spine Center we treat athletes and patients who want better results from their exercise program, people who have suffered injuries and are trying to regain full function, and those with disabilities who are trying to increase mobility and capability.
Our sports medicine specialists treat overuse injuries in individuals whose physical activities strain muscle groups, bones (stress fractures, shin splints), tendons and ligaments.
Above all, our sports medicine specialists are focused on lifelong fitness and wellness. We provide information and training for the prevention of illness and injury as well as treatment for conditions that limit physical activity. We advocate and promote the therapeutic benefits of physical activity, exercise and sports in everyone’s lives.
