Dreyer Sports Medicine Supports Fox Valley Marathon and Local Athletes

Sports medicine is a branch of the healing arts profession which utilizes a holistic, comprehensive approach to the prevention, diagnosis, and management of sport and exercise-related injuries, disorders, dysfunctions and disease processes, according to the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine.  The term ‘athlete’ refers to an individual who is engaged in sport, exercise, or physical activity at the recreational, industrial, competitive, professional or elite level.

Athletes benefit from receiving sports medicine care from specialty-trained physicians who are focused on helping them maintain or return to their optimal level of healthy activity and performance

The Dreyer Sports Medicine program includes both primary care and orthopaedic physicians who are board certified in sports medicine, orthopaedic specialty physicians, certified athletic trainers, sports-specific physical therapists, and coordination with other specialty and primary care departments within Dreyer.  Interested athletes should call Dreyer Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine at 630-264-8720.  Same-day appointments are reserved for athletes at Dreyer’s Highland and Fox Valley Villages locations in Aurora.
