Sports and Performance Nutrition
As a New York sports medicine expert, Dr. Nemirovsky
emphasizes the importance of sports nutrition
and nutrition counseling
in partnership with his hands-on rehabilitation therapies. His expertise in sports performance marries optimal nutrition with physical activity to enhance athletic performance and physical recovery
At Manhattan Sports Therapy, Dr. Nemirovsky provides nutrition counseling, including an analysis of your body composition, current diet, and activity level. Your overall nutrition assessment will help him plan and recommend a nutrition strategy with the most appropriate mix of fluids and foods in relation to your physical activities. He will also provide you with a thorough understanding of the importance of timing your nutrition and hydration intake in relation to physical activity.
When appropriate, particularly for high performing athletes, supplements or nutritional ergogenic aids will be recommended.
The proper intake of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, iron, and other necessary minerals is critical to your body’s ability to:
- Trim fat and tone
- Maintain ideal weight and muscle mass
- Build and repair tissue when recovering from injury or strain
- Replenish glycogen stores for energy
- Enhance performance and reach physical goals faster
While Dr. Nemirovsky approaches nutrition counseling from a “food first” perspective, he believes the benefits of sports nutrition supplements can go a long way in managing the constant demands that athletes place on their bodies. He is well versed in vitamin and mineral supplements and sports beverages, and will recommend choices that are safest and geared toward your performance needs.
Fueling your muscles and preventing dehydration will maximize your performance during physical exertion and speed your recovery time post-injury.
