Dr. Grant Lum, MD, CCFP, Dip Sports Med, Sports Medicine Physician, discusses treatment and prevention of high ankle sprains.
A local sports medicine physician is a medical doctor who specializes in non-surgical diagnosis and treatments of injuries of the musculoskeletal system. They may work in a private clinic, at a hospital or for a sports team, using techniques such as musculoskeletal ultrasound to diagnose issues. A local sports medicine physician can work with your local physiotherapist if you’re recovering from a sports injury or surgery. Whether you’re an athlete managing spondylosis, experience a patella dislocation on the field or need a hip replacement, a local sports medicine physician can non-surgically treat a variety of injuries and dysfunctions.
