When to see a Sports Medicine Doctor

Athletes will always say, “there’s good sore and there’s bad sore.” For many fitness buffs out there, the “good sore” that comes within 24-hours of a great workout is the reason to train hard. It’s a sign of progress, proof that another layer of fitness has been added to the previous body of fitness achievements.

With that said, the body can break down, especially with age and even the greatest athletes succumb to injury. Sports rehab is an important aspect of maintaining an active lifestyle for everyone from the weekend warrior to the full-time athlete. So, when should you come in to see us for your sports rehab needs? If you are unable to stretch or ice away the pain, come see us. If you’re still unsure, call us! We are experts in diagnosing, treating and preventing nearly all musculoskeletal injuries, making Tangelo Seattle’s go-to place to recover after an injury.

Who Should Receive Sports Medicine?

While sports medicine is a relatively new field, Seattle’s Tangelo has been working to evolve exercise medicine from being built around elite-level athletes to being beneficial for the everyday fitness lover. Tangelo works to create three-levels of sports rehab and sports medicine for our patients:

  1. Reversing Suboptimal Health - Fixing the problems of injury related to exercise using specific and calculated movements and exercise techniques.

  2. Maintaining Optimal Health - Using exercise to maximize wellness and create better athletes.

  3. Super-Optimal Health - the use of Sports and Exercise Medicine to further enhance the performance of high-functioning athletic ability. Thus, even if you’re not injured, but are looking for a consultation on how to optimize your body, or prevent any future injuries, we’re happy to offer an assessment and professional insight.

I see Dr. Lisa, Tyler, and Kyle at Tangelo. They are truly amazing. I'd been experiencing low back pain for the last 8 years and it got so bad that I couldn't walk- and I'm in my early 20’s.

Within 6 months, they fixed me. My back pain is gone and if it comes back they taught me how to drive it away. Can't thank them enough–they gave me my life back.


After shoulder surgery, my doctor recommended Tangelo Manual Therapy and Movement for my rehab and I'm so glad he did.

As a strong and active person, being laid up after surgery was incredibly stressful and frustrating for me, and Dr. Paul Molina and Geneva got me back to doing what I love and kept me smiling and committed to the work of getting better the whole time.
