You don’t have to be a professional athlete to experience the benefits of a sports medicine program. Whether you’re a scholastic athlete, a fitness enthusiast or simply enjoy a sporting activity as a hobby, Mercy Sports Medicine offers you a comprehensive diagnostic, treatment and prevention fitness facility.
Injuries sustained while playing sports are not uncommon. Taking precautions and knowing when to seek treatment are essential to staying in the game for as long as possible. Melissa Bickett, MD, shares strategies for injury prevention, as well as how to recognize when it's time to see a doctor.
