What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine is a facet of the medical field that pays special attention to the kinds of injuries sustained from involvement in sports.

Novack specialize in top-tier medical treatments designed to foster the best possible outcomes. Our in-house physical therapist may also assist you during the recovery period.
