What is Sports Medicine?

Most have heard of the term physical therapy and sports physical therapy, but the term “sports medicine” is less familiar to many. Much like physical therapy, sports medicine focuses on rehabilitating persons but more specifically works with athletes or active persons. A large part of sports medicine includes the prevention of injuries or further injury so athletes can remain at the top of their game all season long.

Sports Medicine Doctors Diagnose Injuries and Ailments

At Marina Sports Medicine, we work closely with athletes of all sports—including football players, volleyball players, soccer players, tennis players, runners, and more! Our unique experiences allow us to help patients recover so they can return to optimal movement. In most cases, the first step to helping an athlete is to diagnose injuries or ailments that cause the athlete to experience pain or limited mobility.

At Marina Sports Medicine, our state-of-the-art sports medicine office in Carson is equipped with X-ray machines and other diagnostic equipment, including an MRI-like machine, which allow us to pinpoint the exact place of injury so we can begin the proper treatment plan right away.
