The best way to take care of a sports-related injury is to prevent it from happening it in the first place. Certified Athletic Trainers work closely with athletes during training, practices, and competitions to help prevent injuries. When an injury does occur our trainers are the first to help address the injury and evaluate what further medical attention is needed. Our trainers work with the other members of the Sports Medicine team to expedite referrals and speed up the recovery process.
Every sports injury is different therefore the treatment for these injuries should be tailored to the athlete. In the event of an injury, our physical therapists and physical therapist assistants have years of experience working with active individuals like you. They focus on helping you feel better so you can get back to doing what you love.
