Because our team is trained in pediatrics, we understand that young athletes must be treated carefully to avoid long-term damage. Our multidisciplinary team includes sports medicine physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, certified athletic trainers and a registered dietician. We work together to develop specialized, effective treatments that return young athletes to playing their sport as safely and quickly as possible. We treat athletes with a wide range of sports-related injuries and conditions:
Our athletic trainers are present on the sidelines at high schools and sports venues to help ensure the safety of athletes and provide immediate care when injuries occur. Our pediatric-trained team of sports medicine physicians and orthopaedic surgeons evaluate injured athletes to determine the best course of treatment to get them back on the field. Our physical therapists teach athletes proper exercises to improve range of motion and strength, and use motion analysis technology to examine mechanics and identify flaws that may contribute to injury. Working together as a team, we provide high-quality care for our athletes with the goal of returning the athlete to their sport as quickly and safely as possible.
