We’re now welcoming new members at our San Francisco clinic, right in SoMa.
If you’re a clinician who wants to refer patients with musculoskeletal issues, we’d love to help.

A Sports Medicine Doctor is a physician with significant training in both the treatment and prevention of illness and injury. At Motion, our Sports Medicine doctors help patients maximize function and minimize time away from work, school and activities they love.
Sports Medicine doctors primarily specialize in musculoskeletal (MSK) issues — conditions that affect muscles, bones, and joints, but also have knowledge in general health and injury/illness prevention strategies.
The types of musculoskeletal health care services that a clinician is authorized to provide differ based on specialty. At Motion, a Sports Medicine Doctor brings specific strengths to the clinical team.

Perform a musculoskeletal ultrasound as a diagnostic tool for visualizing different joint and soft tissue structures.
