Welcome to Sports Doc, Philly.com’s brand-new site dedicated to all things sports medicine and fitness. My name is Rob Senior, and I am the editor for this exciting new venture. Sports Doc will cover breaking news, research and other interesting developments in the treatment of sports-related injuries with a special focus on the Philadelphia region. Professional and college athletes, weekend warriors, parents and little leaguers—they’ll all find news they can use at Sports Doc.
To accomplish this, we’re building a panel of the region’s foremost experts in sports medicine—physicians who’ve worked extensively with athletes from all of the aforementioned categories. These experts will share their experiences and knowledge right here on Sports Doc through our regular blog postings.
Sports Doc will have something for everyone, including local sports fans. Unfortunately, injuries are part of the game—any game—and when they occur, we’ll have the latest on your favorite Sixers, Flyers, Eagles and Phillies stars. Thorough explanations of the conditions, progress and setbacks for each injured athlete will give you the information you need on your favorite team.
Amateur athletes will find a home as well—not only through coverage of local college teams, but with stories, updates and profiles from prominent (and not-as-prominent) Delaware Valley events. Whether you’re preparing for your first 5K, or entering the upcoming Philly Marathon—check out Sports Doc for preparation, recovery and in-race advice.
