When you need an orthopedist or sports medicine specialist, the best doctor for you could be nearby—in fact, right in your own neighborhood. To make it easier and more convenient for you and your family to get the best possible care, many highly-trained specialists have opened major sports medicine centers in suburban locales.
Kids’ sports often cause kids’ injuries
One of the great things about living in the Westchester area is the proliferation of kids’ sports, both indoor and outdoor: soccer, football, basketball, baseball, hockey, gymnastics, lacrosse, horseback riding, volleyball, swimming/diving, field hockey and more. However, with kids’ sports often come kids’ sports injuries. And that where local orthopedics and sports medicine specialists fill a very important role.

What helps significantly when a young athlete is injured is the ability to see a local orthopedist who can see him/her right away. In addition, working with a local specialist is also beneficial once the athlete is recovering from injury. As well as follow-up check-ups being conveniently nearby, the coach/trainer and orthopedist can be in close contact regarding progress, healing, return to play and avoiding further injury.
