Musculoskeletal & Sports Medicine
Sports injuries are common and may result from overuse, poor technique, or accidents. Thankfully, most sports injuries do not require surgery.
After a careful evaluation by our specialized team, most of our patients are treated by modifying their activities, undergoing physical therapy, or using medications and/or injections. Our physicians have the training and experience to accurately diagnose your sports-related injury and work with you to ensure an optimal recovery. Our physicians are highly skilled in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound as a diagnostic technique, and to guide treatment.
Our board-certified sports medicine and pain physicians care for a broad range of patients, from professional athletes to weekend warriors. We focus on helping each patient achieve their personal best.
Evaluations with one of our sports medicine specialists are available at our many practice locations:
- Columbia University Irving Medical Center at Harkness Pavilion
- ColumbiaDoctors – Midtown
- ColumbiaDoctors – Tarrytown
- ColumbiaDoctors - 1 Pondfield Road
