Primary Care Sports Medicine | MedStar Health
Surgery isn’t always the answer.Did you know that around 90 percent of all sports medicine injuries don’t need to be treated surgically? So, while we have some of the region’s most capable surgeons on our team, we’d like our patients to avoid the operating room as much as possible.
At MedStar Sports Medicine, we possess the skills, training, and experience to quickly and effectively diagnose and treat injuries involving strains, sprains, dislocations, and many other ligaments, joints, and muscle injuries.
With the proper modification of activity, various modalities (ice, heat, massage, electric stimulation, and ultrasound), medications, and specific/focused rehabilitation, we help professional athletes and weekend warriors alike to return quickly to their active lives.
