Did You Sustain an Injury on the Athletic Field? Meet with a Doctor at Our Reno, NV, Office
If you’re an athlete and you injured yourself while training, at practice, or during a game, you may be wondering where to turn for help. Sports injuries can be especially concerning because, if not treated properly, they can prevent you from participating in an activity that you love. Players also need to be particularly careful not to aggravate their injury while on the field. Fortunately, those with athletic injuries can rely on an experienced doctor at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic’s Reno, Nevada, office to provide expert diagnostic and treatment services.
What is a Sports Medicine Doctor?
A sports medicine doctor is a physician who treats athletic injuries. These doctors may work with professional athletes (some of our physicians have even worked with the U.S. Ski Team!), or they can choose to work with amateur athletes who casually participate in sports. A sports medicine doctor makes it his or her goal to help injured athletes return to the sport as quickly and safely as possible.
