Sports Medicine

NOMS sports medicine physicians treat musculoskeletal injuries that occur, such as knee and shoulder injuries, ankle sprains, head injuries/ concussions, tendonitis, and fractures.

 

In addition, we treat chronic health conditions that can affect athletic performance, such as asthma and diabetes. We also counsel athletes, helping them maximize performance, prevent injuries and lead a healthy lifestyle.

At NOMS both orthopedic and sports medicine physicians are well trained in musculoskeletal medicine. Sports medicine physicians specialize only in the non-operative medical treatment of musculoskeletal sports conditions. Approximately 90 percent of all sports injuries are non-surgical. NOMS sports medicine doctors can help guide the referral to appropriate ancillary services and other physicians as needed for best possible outcomes and quickest recovery.

 

SERVICES:
