Pittsburgh’s Family Doctor Offers Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to sports and exercise. At Epic Medical, our sports medicine physicians are specially trained to diagnose and treat injuries caused by physical activity.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Concussions - We offer a comprehensive concussion management program that includes baseline testing, return-to-play protocols, and ongoing monitoring.
  • Injury prevention - We work with athletes of all levels to prevent injuries through proper training and conditioning programs.
  • Degenerative Joint Disease - We offer a comprehensive program to help patients with degenerative joint diseases, like arthritis, manage their pain and improve their quality of life. We can help manage your pain with treatments like:
    • Joint injections - We offer a variety of joint injection medications to help relieve pain and inflammation, including corticosteroid injections, viscosupplementation (lubricating injections), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.
    • Trigger Point Therapy - If you’re looking for trigger point therapy near you, Epic Medical can help. Our physicians use injections of local anesthetics and/or steroids to relieve pain in specific areas of the body called “trigger points.”
