Sports Medicine Doctor in South Austin

As the number of professional and amateur athletes grows, the need for specialized medical treatment for these athletes grows with it. To remain competitive and healthy, athletes require specific treatment for their various physical, psychological, and nutritional needs. To answer these new demands of elite and dedicated athletes, the field of sports medicine emerged.

Sports medicine uses various forms of physical therapy, alternative training, medication, and minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery.
