Albany Medical Center’s Sports and Exercise Medicine physicians specialize in the non-operative medical treatment of musculoskeletal sports conditions, such as acute injuries (e.g. ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries, and fractures) and overuse injuries (e.g. tendonitis, stress fractures).
Sports and Exercise Medicine specialists at Albany Med provide treatment for many injuries that have historically been referred to orthopedic surgeons. We offer consultation and care for injuries that do not require surgery, reserving orthopedic referrals for cases that call for operative management.
Albany Medical Center’s Sports and Exercise Medicine facility was designed with the special needs of athletes in mind. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and an expert staff, it is the region’s premier center for sports medicine and exercise physiology.
Offering dynamic testing and a range of advanced on-site services, Albany Med’s Sports and Exercise Medicine physicians help athletes improve performance – in addition to treating individuals who have experienced injury while participating in sports or during exercise.
