Sports and Exercise Medicine
Sports Medicine Physicians
The field of sports medicine is a combination of Sports and Exercise Medicine. The specialty is devoted to meeting the unique needs of patients with exercise-related injuries and people who are looking to improve their fitness and well-being with exercise therapy.
When an athlete is injured, they need prompt, effective, and minimally invasive treatment. The goal is always a quick return to play, but we never want to sacrifice adequate healing time. If an injury does not heal properly, or completely, the risk for re-injury is greater. Our multidisciplinary medical team members are sensitive to this, as we have worked with patients of all ages and various sports injuries.
Common conditions treated by our physicians include:
- Rotator cuff tear
- Golfer's elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Partial ligament and tendon tears
- Soft tissue injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Ankle sprain and ankle instability
- Knee pain and injury
If you’ve been injured and want to avoid surgery, Delaware Back Pain & Sports Rehabilitation Centers is the place to come. The first step is to conduct a thorough evaluation of your pain level, range of motion, and function. We can use X-Rays and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to take a closer look and confirm the diagnosis.
To start your recovery, we employ a wide range of physical medicine and rehabilitation therapy services and advanced non-surgical treatments. For more serious injuries that require surgery, we can provide the rehabilitation support you need to stimulate healing and reduce down time.
We have sports rehab clinics in Wilmington, Newark, Smyrna, and Dover, Delaware. At each of our six locations, you’ll have access to modern rehabilitation equipment used by professional athletes. Plus, you’ll have a member of our therapeutic rehabilitation team and your doctor overseeing your progress and motivating you every step of the way. It is not easy to come back from an injury, but we have helped thousands of athletes regain their strength and get back in the game.
