What is Sports Medicine?


Musculoskeletal and Sports Medicine specialists are board certified physicians with an additional 1 to 2 years of fellowship training specifically in sports medicine.  In addition to caring for athletes and non-athletes in the clinic, specialists like Dr. Fralich and Dr. Lawson are often team physicians, managing not only acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries but concussions, acute and chronic illnesses, nutrition, sports performance, psychological and other health conditions.  Sports Medicine specialists often collaborate with orthopedic surgeons, primary care physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers to return athletes to activity quickly and safely.


Additionally, our CMA Sports Medicine team has extensive training performing advanced ultrasound guided injections and procedures, which are often used to treat chronic conditions in lieu of surgery.  These conditions include but are not limited to injuries of the rotator cuff with or without calcifications, patella and Achilles tendon injuries, degenerative disease of the shoulder, knee, and hip, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis and golfer’s elbow.
