You Don’t Have to Be an Athlete to See a Sports Medicine Physician
July 31, 2017
Sports medicine doctors treat injuries to the body’s joints, muscles, or bones, and contrary to the name, you do not have to be an athlete to see this type of doctor. In this recent podcast, Dr. Brandon Zinn, Orthopedist and Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine physician at ARC Now Clinic and ARC Medical Park Tower Orthopedics, explains “In sports medicine, we treat all physical injuries – you don’t have to play a sport to see a sports medicine physician – the goal is to assess and treat your injury to get you moving again, safely.”
Dr. Zinn says, “When you have an injury or pain from sports, work, or other physical activities, you may think ‘My pain is not important enough to see a doctor.’“ But Dr. Zinn advises, “If the injury or pain limits your physical activity and what you choose to do or avoid doing, then it’s important.”
If an injury is keeping you from your normal level of activity, see a sports medicine physician today. Dr. Zinn is currently accepting new patients at two locations:
ARC Now Clinic
ARC Medical Park Tower Orthopedics
Make an appointment by calling the numbers listed above, or online.
