Sports medicine is a specialty that focuses on physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports, exercise and activities. Sports medicine is not just for professional athletes. If you enjoy an active lifestyle, you may develop an injury or condition that keeps you from doing what you love. A sports medicine physician has specialized training in the body’s muscles and bones, known as the musculoskeletal system. Sports Medicine focuses on non-surgical treatments for muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments. The vast majority of sports injuries do not require surgery.   

Whether it’s running, lifting, biking, hiking, walking, swimming, fitness classes or sports leagues, a sports medicine physician can treat injuries and prevent future problems. Treatment plans are personalized for each individual. The Mankato Clinic Sports Medicine Department treats adults and children.

  • Muscle strains
