Sports Medicine through a team based approach with evaluation, treatment, conditioning & return to play
We believe the best way to treat athletes is through a team based approach. Having on site physical therapy for our athletes allows a better continuity of care from the initial diagnosis with the physician, to evaluation and treatment with the therapist, and even integrating return to play and conditioning with out athletic development programs.
Working with our physicians, our therapists combine several modalities along with functional movement rehabilitation and manual therapy, to bring our athletes back to a high level of care. Our continuity of care is maximized by having everything under one roof, allowing everyone involved with the care of our patients to better collaborate with each other.
Concussions have come to the forefront recently as a matter of serious concern for all athletes, but especially those competing in high paced, contact sports. Our physicians are in line with the most up to date science, and we offer in house concussion testing and review of ImPACT, a computer based neurocognitive test, which has become the standard of care in most professional, college and high school sports.
In addition, we offer a concussion rehabilitation program, with the most current methods to rehabilitate the injured brain back to a safe return to play. Our physicians have significant experience over the last 10 years, treating hundreds of concussions every season
Running and Endurance Medicine
Our running and endurance science clinic is dedicated to improving the performance of endurance athletes. Combining performance testing with an expertise in sports medicine, our clinic helps you to meet your personal goals in training. The following tests are offered to all clients not just our patients.
- VO2 Max Testing- measures an athlete’s overall fitness level. The results of this test can help to design specific training protocols, which subsequently can improve performance.
- Metabolic Rate Testing(RMR)- measures the amount of calories an individual burns at rest throughout the day or the minimal amount of energy needed for the body to function. These measurements helps us t plan dietary strategies specifically for your needs.
- Video Gait Analysis- assists in identifying areas for performance improvement as well as injury prevention.
- Body Composition- these measures are taken through a technique called DEXA scanning. This allows very accurate measurements of body fat percentage and lean muscle mass.
A Comprehensive Endurance Assessment includes all of the above in addition to a biometric screening reviewed by a sports medicine physician.
