Dr. Kim Fagan
34 years experience female
Currently I have a private practice focusing on the care of athletes and all those interested in an active lifestyle. Prior to opening my own practice I was fellowship director for a primary care sports medicine training program. Previous academic experience included teaching faculty positions within the Baptist Healthcare System and the University of Alabama Hospital System in the Internal Medicine and Orthopedic departments respectively. I have had the good fortune to care for athletes ranging from t-ball, NCAA to Olympic level. Best decision ever-finding a way to balance it all so that I could be around for my now nearly grown 3 children and wonderful husband.

A 40-year-old male asked:
Appropriate med RX: The most important thing for you right now is to make sure your thyroid issue is adequately treated. Once this is handled there should be no limitations to your normal exercise routine. Start with a well balanced routine of gradually increasing aerobic activity on an every other day basis to allow time for recovery. Incorporate light weights 2 days/week and include gentle stretching daily.
A 65-year-old male asked:
TMJ: The most likely diagnosis based on your history is a subluxation or shifting of your temporomandibular joint that connects your upper and lower jaw bones together just below your ear. Since you are still having difficulty chewing with a feeling of misalignment of your teeth i recommend you make an appointment with your dentist.
A 43-year-old female asked:
Further dx studies: If you have undergone 8 weeks of a comprehensive conservative treatment program for your shoulder and still having pain further diagnostic studies are likely warranted. Conservative treatment typically includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, physical therapy, avoidance of aggravating activities and possibly a cortisone injection. Further diagnostic studies may include a ultrasound or mri.
