What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine specializes in diagnosing, treating, and preventing injuries in athletes and other active people.

What happens during a sports medicine evaluation?

Your FIX Medical Group sports medicine evaluation is comprehensive. The team wants to fully understand your health condition, limitations, and goals.

The team could request imaging procedures like X-rays or CT scans to confirm or rule out a diagnosis.
