When to See a Sports Medicine Specialist at AOSMI

Both primary care physicians and sports medicine specialists can help you manage a mild to moderate sports-related injury with rest, ice applications, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, as a general rule of thumb, if a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan is necessary, a specialist visit may be in order. As compared to a generalist, a sports medicine specialist will have more focused expertise, which can be used to determine the most appropriate next steps based on the specifics of your diagnosis.

At AOSMI, we are committed to providing exceptional orthopedic care to all athletes, including Olympians, professionals, collegiate competitors, weekend warriors, children in youth sports leagues, and individuals who are just getting started. If you were recently injured or are concerned about chronic pain, we can evaluate your condition and discuss a plan to get you back into the game quickly and safely.
