What is sports medicine?
Sports medicine is a practice specialty focusing on:
• injury treatment and prevention;
• exercise; and
• athletic performance.
Our providers treat sports-related acute and chronic injuries and problems. Care includes splints, casts and injections; UHS’ on-site physical therapy and radiology departments also serve sports medicine patients. Our team works closely with area orthopedic providers and uses nearby facilities for certain tests, including MRI, CT and bone scans.
Who can use sports medicine?
Everyone eligible for services at UHS can see a sports medicine provider. You don’t need to be a member of an organized UMass sports team.
