Sports Medicine Clinic


The Sports Medicine Clinic at Vanderbilt Health One Hundred Oaks provides care for active adolescents and young adults, or those who wish to become active. We provide care for competitive athletes of all skill levels and expertise, as well as for non-athletes with injuries or musculoskeletal problems.

We promote fitness and wellness, encourage prevention of injury and illness, maximize function, and minimize time away from sports, work, and school.

Our pediatric specialist, Dr. Alex B. Diamond, has additional training in musculoskeletal medicine and sports conditions.

We specialize in non-operative treatment (medicine, physical therapy, braces, training habits) of sports injuries. Ninety percent of all sports injuries are non-surgical. However, we can expedite a referral to an appropriate orthopedic surgeon if surgery is required.

Conditions we treat

  • Acute injuries, such as ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries, and fractures
  • Overuse injuries, such as tendonitis and stress fractures
  • Concussions
  • Sports performance issues (nutrition, supplements)
  • Injury assessment and management
  • Care of sports-related injuries

Other consultations and services we offer

  • General athletic medical needs
  • Sports physicals
  • Sports ultrasound exams
  • Coordination of care between other members of health care and sports medicine teams
  • Injury prevention
  • Exercise prescription to increase fitness level
  • Strength training and conditioning
  • Return-to-play decisions for sick or injured athletes
  • Healthy lifestyle promotion
