What Is Sports Medicine?
As a PM&R physician, Dr. Hill is well trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of physical injuries. His residency program at the University of Virginia had a large emphasis on sports medicine, preparing him to treat a wide variety of athletes at all skill levels. With this sports medicine background, Dr. Hill doesn’t focus on only treating musculoskeletal injuries, but also on preventing them and even improving athletic performance. He gained significant experience and knowledge about running medicine and biomechanics by working in The Runner’s Clinic with Robert Wilder, MD, and The SPEED Clinic with Jay Dicharry, PT. He uses this biomechanical approach to help not only runners and triathletes, but a wide variety of athletes and people with physically demanding jobs.
