Sports Medicine

orthoAs a certified sports physician since 1990, Dr. Downes has had the privilege of working with world class athletes as well as serving local running communities, little league, high school and college athletes. As The Hunt Valley Medical Center is located in Horse Country, she has treated countless equestrians with outstanding results.

Our office is fully equipped with state-of-the art X-ray, digital foot scanner, and physiotherapy modalities which expedite healing as well as minimize pain. Dr. Downes often utilizes nutritional support for injuries as well as for optimizing sports performance.

We take pride in being able to evaluate your sports injuries and take them around the bases to support all the appropriate components to quickly heal and maximally empower your body.

Structural distortions may require chiropractic adjustment, orthotics, supports and/or taping.
Soft tissue injuries respond dramatically to nutritional support, orthopedic acupuncture, and physical therapy modalities, all of which we have in-house and with a doctor's expertise and discernment.

In addition, we hold to the truth that if we cannot help you, we will refer you to appropriate specialists. We are honored to work closely with top-notch physicians and surgeons who have your best interest and optimal recovery in mind.

Dr. Downes is a fitness enthusiast who enjoys running, swimming, working out and golf. She has suffered many of the same injuries she treats and knows first hand how important it is for you to return to activity as soon as possible. Her comprehensive care and attention to compensation and secondary injuries makes her care ideal for complete recovery.

Power Immunity
Just say no to H1N1

Our bodies do not have an immune system, as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality.  Systems such as the skeletal system, respiratory system, reproductive system, endocrine system, central nervous system, etc. are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses.  The human body does not have a single immune system, as it is better described as having an immune alliance among various systems  and organs which when coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of disease associated factors, such as bacteria or vital invasion.  The immune alliance is comprised of the thymus gland for lymphocytes, the spleen for antibodies, bone marrow for blood cell formation, digestive system and its acid to destroy parasites, intestinal flora, which destroy pathogenic microbes, and the liver for detoxification and enzyme production.
