Keeping Young Athletes on Top of Their Game

High school athletes are busier than ever. And it’s important to make sure they get top-notch care during practices and games. The Sports Medicine & Performance Center has forged exclusive partnerships with area school districts to do just that. Services include sports physicals, baseline concussion testing and the full-time availability of a certified athletic trainer.

We work with each school district to develop a program that suits their needs. We offer coverage at practices, home contests and road games, and a certified athletic trainer to handle sports medicine-related duties like conditioning, rehabilitation and nutrition assistance. The athletic trainers staff summer camps and work closely with school nurses on medical issues that arise during the school day as well.
