A Sports Medicine Physician Can Help You Reclaim Your Active Lifestyle in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, or a Nearby VA Community

A sports medicine physician is a medical doctor who has completed specialized training and dedicates his or her practice to promoting the lifelong wellness and fitness of patients. The experienced and talented sports medicine physicians at Tidewater Orthopaedics work closely with our outstanding team of in-house physical therapists to bring the very latest techniques and treatments to patients in Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and the surrounding Virginia areas.

Contrary to popular belief, a sports medicine doctor does not necessarily treat competitive athletes exclusively. In fact, sports medicine physicians can be excellent resources for high school team members, collegiate competitors, weekend warriors, active seniors, and anyone else who would like to prevent injuries, maximize function, and minimize time away from work, school, sports, or other activities.

In addition to assessing and managing a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries, such as sprains, strains, and fractures, a sports medicine physician can assist with:

  • Injury prevention strategies
  • General fitness, strength training, and conditioning programs
  • Nutrition and supplements
  • “Return to play” decisions for injured athletes
  • Sports physicals
  • Sports psychology issues
  • Healthy lifestyle promotion
  • Communications with athletic coaches, trainers, and school administrators
  • And more

Each sports medicine physician at Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads has additional training in the area of sports medicine. These experienced subspecialists also serve as team physicians for Hampton University, Hampton City Schools, and the Apprentice School operated by Newport News Shipbuilding.

At Tidewater Orthopaedics, every patient – athlete and non-athlete alike – has access to personalized care from a highly qualified sports medicine physician. Additionally, our in-house physical therapy department focuses exclusively on orthopaedic conditions and provides advanced rehabilitation techniques. We firmly believe that our specialized approach provides the best possible experience and outcome for each of our patients.
