Baylor Scott & White Sports & Physical Medicine Center helps patients recover from injuries and resume healthy, active lives. James C. Sterling, MD, has been practicing sports medicine and treating concussions since 1987. He also practices physical medicine and rehabilitation (PMR), which focuses on the management of disorders that alter function and performance.
A board-certified sports medicine, concussion and conservative spine specialist, Dr. Sterling uses a holistic approach to alleviate musculoskeletal problems and return patients to daily routines and recreational activities. In addition, Dr. Sterling serves on the Concussion Oversite Team for many area school districts. Each concussion oversight team establishes a return-to-play protocol based on peer-reviewed scientific evidence for a student's return to interscholastic athletics practice or competition following the force or impact believed to have caused a concussion.
