Sports medicine refers to the branch of medicine that deals with illnesses or injuries resulting from participation in sports and athletic activities. Knee, leg, back, shoulder and hand injuries, as well as joint pain and stiffness, are a few of the common disorders treated. Whether you are a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, you may benefit from sports medicine services offered at Sentara.
