Sports medicine specializes in preventing, diagnosing and treating sports or exercise related injuries, specifically the rotation or deformation of joints or muscles caused by engaging in such physical activities.

As a multi disciplinary practice, Manhattan Total Health also specializes in Sports Medicine. Our sports medicine team includes medical doctors, athletic trainers, exercise physiologists, and physical therapists. Because of the competitive nature of sports, a primary focus of sports medicine is the rapid recovery of patients. We also treat our non-competitive patients in a similar way. The whole goal is to allow our patients to return to their chosen activities quickly.

Our team at MTH goes one step beyond most practices by offering a preventative phase of physical medicine. It includes the proper education and motivation of the patient so that they can protect their biomechanics in order to enjoy their activities. This gives them effective movement patterns and will also improve their performance.

Some of the most common sports related injuries treated at MTH are:

  • Muscle Pull
  • Neck Strain
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Lower Back
  • Runner’s Knee
  • Shin Splints
  • Sprained Ankle
  • Achilles Tendon
  • Foot Arch
