Sports Medicine FAQs

Common questions that people have about Integrative Sports Medicine.

When should I see a Sports Medicine physician?

It's crucial to consult a Sports Medicine healthcare provider when experiencing acute or chronic injuries, performance issues or other exercise-related concerns to ensure proper diagnosis, treatment and guidance for a healthy and active lifestyle. These may include:

1. Acute injuries: if you experience a sudden injury during sports or physical activities such as a sprain, strain, fracture or dislocation, seek medical attention immediately.

2. Persistent pain: if you have pain that doesn't improve with rest, ice, compression and elevation after a few days or worsens over time, contact a sports physician for further evaluation.

3. Swelling and inflammation: if you notice excessive swelling, redness or warmth around an injured area, it could indicate a more severe issue that requires medical attention.

4. Limited range of motion: if an injury is causing significant restriction in your joint mobility or muscle flexibility, consult a sports doctor for proper assessment.

5. Recurring injuries: if you have recurrent injuries in the same area or similar types of injuries, a functional sports medicine physician can help you finding the root cause of the issue.

6. Performance issues: if you're struggling to reach your athletic potential, experiencing a decline in performance or want to improve your fitness, a sports medicine specialist can help develop a tailored training and nutrition plan.

7. Concussions or head injuries: if you suspect a concussion or experience symptoms like dizziness, confusion, headache or memory loss after a head injury, consult a sports medicine professional immediately.

8. Exercise-induced conditions: if you have symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, or exercise-induced asthma, seek medical advice to ensure safe participation in sporting events and physical activity.

9. Pre-participation evaluation: before starting a new sport or training program, especially if you have pre-existing health conditions or risk factors, consult a sports medicine physician for guidance and recommendations.

What happens during an integrative sports medicine consultation?

During an integrative sports medicine consultation, the physician focuses on a holistic approach to assess, diagnose and treat sports-related issues, considering the human body as an interconnected system.
The consultation aims to identify the root causes of symptoms or performance limitations and develop personalized plans that address the underlying imbalances. Here's an overview of what you can expect during an integrative sports medicine consultation:

- Comprehensive patient history: the Sports Medicine physician will gather detailed information about your medical history, lifestyle, nutrition, sleep patterns, stress levels and emotional well-being, in addition to your sports and physical activities, training routines and goals.

- Symptoms and injury details: the healthcare provider will discuss any pain you're experiencing, focusing on understanding the context, triggers and factors that may contribute to the issue.

- Physical examination: a thorough examination will assess your posture, joint mobility, muscle strength, flexibility and balance. The doctor will also evaluate the injured area and consider any biomechanical imbalances or movement patterns that may contribute to the problem.

- Functional assessments: the sports medicine professional may use functional testing methods to evaluate your body's overall function.

- Diagnostic tests: in addition to standard tests like X-rays or MRI, sports medicine therapists may order blood tests, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, spirometry and exercise stress test with gas analysis or cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

- Integrative treatment plan: based on the comprehensive assessment, the sports medicine physician will develop a personalized plan that addresses the root causes of the issue. This plan may include a combination of conventional treatments (e.g., physical therapy, medication), along with complementary therapies (e.g., nutritional counseling, stress management techniques) to promote overall health and well-being.

- Ongoing support and monitoring: the healthcare provider will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, adjust the treatment plan as needed and provide ongoing support to help you achieve your health and performance goals.

Can Sports Medicine physicians perform surgery?

Sports Medicine doctors usually aren't surgeons. They focus on non-surgical treatments for sports injuries. If surgery is needed, they may refer patients to an orthopedic surgeon, who is a specialist in surgical treatments for the bones and muscles. Some orthopedic surgeons also have extra training in sports medicine, allowing them to treat sports injuries with both surgical and non-surgical methods.

Why do I need to see a primary care Sports Medicine physician?

The Primary Care Sports and Exercise Medicine Physician is a medical professional who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and management of sports-related injuries and conditions, as well as promoting overall health and wellness through exercise and physical activity.
These physicians have completed their primary care training in fields such as family medicine, internal medicine or pediatrics, and have subsequently pursued additional specialized training in sports medicine. This training enables them to address some key aspects of the role such as rehabilitation, prevention and performance optimization.
