Is sports medicine right for me?

You don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from what a sports physician can provide. If you’re seeking to become more active or begin an exercise program, a sports physician can help, promoting lifelong fitness and wellness, and encouraging the prevention of illness and injury.

Drs. Jack Skendzel and Angela Voight discuss some of the ways that sports medicine can benefit people from all walks of life, not just elite athletes in the featured video below.
