What is Sports Medicine?

Sports medicine is the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of injuries that happen in sports. While physical activity is a crucial part of your health and wellness, sports demand a lot from your body.

At Catalyst Medical Group, all of the valley’s most highly ranked orthopedic, sports medicine specialists, come together to offer comprehensive sports injury care under one roof.  

When might I need sports medicine?

You may need sports medicine if, you experience an injury or have new pain or movement issues related to sports. Some of the injuries, that the Catalyst Medical Group team specializes in treating are:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Fractures
  • Muscle weakness
  • Torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
