Sports and athletics have rapidly expanded within our culture to include everyone from elite athletes to those who participate in recreational athletics or simply use exercise to stay healthy and active. Sports Medicine providers at SHS treat all of the above.
Services at SHS cover the spectrum from medical evaluation prior to initiating an exercise program, to diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic injuries. Emphasis is placed on safe participation through injury prevention, optimizing performance, and safely returning to activity after injury or illness.
The sports medicine physicians complement the available services at SHS by offering treatment and rehabilitation modalities on-site that include casting, splinting, bracing, and injections. The sports medicine physicians also work closely with trainers, physical therapists, orthopedic and podiatric surgeons, nutritionists, and other medical specialists to help individuals reach and maintain their activity goals.
Our sports medicine physicians see patients every day of the week. In the event of an acute injury (a sprained ankle for example), a student may be given an appointment with one of the sports medicine providers or with a primary care provider. If deemed necessary, a follow-up visit can be arranged for a sports medicine evaluation. If a student is experiencing a chronic issue (knee pain with running for example), then they can schedule a Sports Medicine evaluation in advance.
New patient visits for Sports Medicine are 30 minutes. Follow-up visits are 15 minutes. For appointments please call 215.746.3535.
