Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is the sub-specialty of orthopaedics that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries due to athletic or vigorous activity.

The practice of sports medicine involves a coordinated approach between the orthopaedic surgeon/team physician, the physical therapist and the athletic trainer. At Virginia Spine and SportsĀ Orthopaedics, our Board-certified and our Fellowship-trained sports medicine physicians employ this team approach. Athletes, as well as patients with active lifestyles, benefit from these comprehensive services that maximize functional recovery and minimize down time while expediting return to full activity.
