Sports Medicine Physician | David Schechter, MD
Sports Medicine is a specialty that I was certified in in 1993 and again re-certified in 2003. I try to bring the knowledge that I’ve learned from treating athletes to everyone who has aches, pains, and injuries–recreational athletes, injured workers, pain patients, and even the elderly.
I’ve had the opportunity as a Sports Medicine Physician to treat world class Ice Skaters, Marathon Runners, and high school football players. I’ve also treated hundreds of runners, tennis, and hockey players. Sports Medicine is about injuries, but it’s also about fitness, it’s about exercise programs that you can maintain, and it’s about prevention.
Sports Medicine is a great field that I believe offers many types of patients a focus that is missing in other fields that treat similar problems.
