Sports medicine is a branch of medicine focused on helping athletes recover from injuries, prevent future injuries, and improve their overall performance. Sports medicine can be beneficial for all types of people, whether you’re an occasional participant, a weekend warrior, or a professional athlete.
Dr. Genkin offers the following sports medicine services:
Sports put you at an increased risk of specific types of injuries. In many cases, these injuries occur because of problems with the way you move during these activities. Dr. Genkin can evaluate your technique and help you identify areas that need improvement. He can also recommend exercises to help you overcome these problems and prevent future injuries.
As an athlete, you can enhance your performance by making small changes to the way to train. These changes will improve the way you move during a sporting event. Dr. Genkin can watch your current training and performance techniques carefully to identify the changes that need to be made. He can also help you make these changes so you’ll get better results when you play.
Dr. Genkin can treat all types of sports injuries affecting the ankles, feet, and knees. Injuries he can treat include:
Every athlete is unique and every sports injury is different. After diagnosing an injury and recommending treatment options, Dr. Genkin will be able to give you a better idea of how soon you’ll be able to return to your sport. However, he won’t release you until you’ve healed from your injuries. Returning to your sport too soon can lead to new injuries, a return of old injuries, and the possibility of suffering a chronic injury.
