Sports medicine is a field of healthcare designed specifically for the athlete.
The goal of sports medicine is threefold:
+ To help athletes perform better
+ To prevent injury
+ To quickly rehabilitate an injury
In addition to his medical degree, Dr. Gorin has a postgraduate degree in sports medicine, making him uniquely qualified to help you lead a healthy, active lifestyle, enjoying the sports you love most.
Whether you’re a weekend warrior slugging it out on the community softball field, or you’re a competitive athlete who relies on physical fitness, Dr. Gorin is with you every step of the way to ensure you’re performing at your best.
Sports are rife with injury, the most common of which include:
+ Groin pulls
+ Ankle sprains
+ Knee injuries, such as ACL or meniscus tears
+ Tennis elbow
+ Rotator cuff tears
+ Shin splints
+ Low back strains or sprains
While some sports injuries are hard to avoid, such as a tackle in football, many can be avoided with the right preventive care.
As a sports medicine specialist, one of Dr. Gorin’s primary goals is helping you avoid injury in the first place. To do this, he first performs a comprehensive exam to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your musculoskeletal system.
During your sports physical, Dr. Gorin gathers your medical history, performs a complete physical examination that tests for strength, balance, and reflexes, and conducts a functional analysis.
This last point is an important one. Knowing the stresses each activity places on different areas of your body, Dr. Gorin watches how your body functions under these stresses and points out ways you can avoid injury and even improve your performance.
As part of your sports exam, Dr. Gorin also conducts a sports injury assessment so you’re aware of your risk for injury. By identifying your weak spots, Dr. Gorin works with you to strengthen these areas.
If you are injured, Dr. Gorin will do everything in his power to help you heal as quickly as possible, sending you back to your sport as strong as before.
If you love your active life, don’t let a sports injury keep you out of the game. Call or book an appointment online with the Institute of Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics today to learn more about preventive sports medicine.
Listen to what our patients have to say about their experience with Dr. Gorin.
Dr. Gorin and his staff are beyond amazing. I was actually late to my appointment and still seen almost right away. Everyone is very friendly! The office is impeccable and pretty, with state of the art clean equipment. I was quite impressed. Dr. Gorin was thorough and professional but still friendly and funny. He was honest with his suggestions and very helpful. I felt well taken care of and highly recommend his practice especially if you are athletic, he seems very specialized in this area which I loved.
I found the whole experience with Dr. Gorin and his staff to be absolutely top class. The staff were bright, professional and courteous. Dr Gorin did an exceptional job of explaining his diagnosis and I left feeling that I couldn’t be in better hands.
I fractured my wrist and needed to see him after an emergency visit I called the answering service and left a message after 15 min he called me back and you don't see that level of care anymore from a physician but Dr. Steven Gorin cares and the following day he was able to see me. I will never go to another orthopedic again if I can help it.
Dr. Gorin and his staff were efficient, thorough and genial in providing service to my 90-year old mother-in-law. We appreciated the short wait times through the intake, x-ray and exam/consultation processes.
Has to be the best overall doctor/healthcare experience I’ve had. I went to Dr. Gorin for a second opinion and he should have been my first.
Dr. Gorin was kind and compassionate and took his time to explain my condition and treatment options. Fantastic experience!
Very knowledgeable, pleasant in and out, with very hi tech equipment and attentive personal. Strongly recommend. He will help.
