Injuries are painful and can keep athletes from playing to their full potential. At the Sports Medicine Center, our goal is to help injured athletes recover as quickly as possible and prevent future injuries from occurring. Although there are times when medications or surgery may be required, we focus on helping people to recover and stay healthy using the safest, least invasive methods possible. These methods include exercises for flexibility, strength and stability, manual therapies, exercise programs, and nutrition and dietary advice.
The Sports Medicine Center also specializes in conservative orthopedic care for non-athletes and seniors. Orthopedic care includes care for injuries to joints such as the shoulder and knee. Our approach is to accurately diagnose your condition and suggest the least invasive treatment approach to help you become pain-free and return to your regular activities as quickly as possible.
If your school or organization requires an examination for pre-participation clearance, you can trust SCU Health System’s Sports Medicine Center to complete a thorough examination to help you start your season off right. Our doctors are up-to-date on the latest research and issues in athlete health, including concussions and eating disorders, so you can feel comfortable that our examinations will be thorough and address any special concerns.
