In brief: Sports Med doc
This could be one of several doctors.
A primary care sports medicine physician or physical medicine &rehab doctor would manage these issues non surgically. An Orthopedic sports medicine surgeon night manage these problems with surgery. Hope that helps.

In brief: Family Doctors too.
In addition to dr. M. Jay petruska's answer for orthopedic surgeon, there are also board certified family physicians who also have added qualifications in sports medicine.
Lastly, physiatrists can also help in sports injuries.

Actually the range of physician who are now qualified by way of additional training and board certification (CAQ in Sports Medicine) is quite broad including Internist, Pediatricians, Emergency Medicine physicians, Osteopathic physicians, as well as Family Physicians, Physiatrist and Orthopedist. The important thing is to check for your physicians qualifications. You now have many options.

In brief: Sports orthopedist.
A surgeon, who "fixes" sports injuries is a sports medicine fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon.
A non-surgeon, is a sports medicine fellowship trained doctor, who can "fix" non-surgical conditions.
