Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. Sport medicine doctors are specialist physicians who have completed medical school and residency training in physical medicine and rehabilitation, family practice or orthopedic surgery. We have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine and use this to treat athletes and other physically active individuals. More specifically, we are experts in treating injuries to muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones.
Often we will also be called on to treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance such as neck and back pain. Sports medicine doctors also advise on managing and preventing injuries. Our goal as specialists is to deliver clinical physical activity interventions and treatments to negate the burden of disease directly attributable to physical inactivity, incorrect activity or over activity.
After two complicated back surgeries in the early seventies I continued to suffer excruciating lower back and sciatic pain. I sought out the finest doctors and rehab facilities. I was very fortunate to have access to some of the best treatment available. Nothing resolved my pain issues until I met Dr. Andre Panagos. Dr. Panagos discovered the source of my pain when no one else could and treated it with an innovative technique several months ago. I am now pain free for the first time in more than thirty years. He is a compassionate, friendly and open minded physician dedicated to resolving the pain and suffering of his patients.
There are no words to describe my appreciation to this wonderful man and his extraordinary team.
