When it comes to non-surgical treatment, sports medicine doctors have special training to restore function for people with physical injuries so they can get moving again as soon as possible. They are also knowledgeable about preventing illness and injury in active people. Sports medicine doctors work with patients of all ages and at all athletic levels, from professional athletes and children and teens involved in sports, to adults who exercise for personal fitness and people who have physically demanding jobs, like construction workers.
