Sports Medicine is a division of medicine that focuses on athletic performance and the treatment and prevention of injuries related to these activities. While sports medicine has been traditionally practiced on athletes at the highest level, in recent years these treatments have become common for all types of patients, athletic or not.
As one of Richmond’s most prominent sports medicine physicians, Dr. Nordt is fellowship trained in sports medicine, knee and shoulder surgery. He has been the sports medicine physician for the Olympic training camp and traveled with the women’s Olympic ski team as the team physician as well as serving as the team doctor for many high school, college and professional sports teams in Richmond and beyond. Dr. Nordt has also lectured and researched in athletic injuries to the knee and shoulder for much of his career. Most recently, he has devoted his time to the understanding of the long term degenerative effects of sports injuries in the aging individual.
As athletes, we know that sports-related injuries can and do happen, but they don’t have to be your reason for giving up the activities that you’re passionate about. Dr. Nordt’s goal is to provide thorough and effective treatments that will allow you to return to the activities you love, while preventing future injuries from happening.
Whether it’s helping an experienced marathon runner return to exercising after a knee replacement, or helping a wrestler get back full-mobility after a rotator cuff injury, Dr. Nordt has a true passion for supporting and treating athletes of all kinds, and he is very proud to bring his extensive knowledge to the people of Richmond.
