​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Overview of Sports Medicine

From a pick-up game of basketball to pumping iron with bad form to years of serving a tennis ball, sports activities can do an "end-run" on your bones and joints.

Sometimes it takes the professional expertise of a sports medicine specialist – utilizing the latest diagnostic equipment and technologies – to help get you back in top form.​
