Primary Care Sports Medicine is a medical subspecialty available to both MD’s and DO’s. It is a one year non-surgical fellowship that can be undertaken after a full primary care residency is completed and requires successful completion of a Fellowship and a written Board exam. Its medical focus is in the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise.

A common misconception is that you have to be an athlete to see a Sports Medicine physician. With the goal of returning an athlete to play after an injury, Sports Medicine physicians are especially skilled in returning non-athletes to activity without surgery as well. ¬†For example, a young mother with Mommy’s Thumb (De Quervain’s tenosynovitis) from pushing a stroller has the same desire and need to return to pain free activity as a professional athlete.
