Primary care sports medicine
Surgery Isn’t Always the Answer.
Did you know that around 90 percent of all sports medicine injuries don’t need to be treated surgically? So, while we have some of the region’s most capable surgeons on our team, we’d like our patients to avoid the operating room as much as possible.
Physical therapy helps develop, maintain, and restore maximum movement and functional ability to a body. It involves a process where movement potential is assessed and goals are agreed upon, using knowledge and skills unique to physical therapists.
Physical therapists utilize an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan to maximize performance and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, and rehabilitation.
MedStar Health’s team of Certified Athletic Trainers (ATCs) provides high quality healthcare to the physically active population of all levels.
Sports performance enhancement
We offer a comprehensive athletic enhancement program for athletes seeking to improve their sports performance. Athletes utilize a periodized program to enhance their athletic abilities, such as speed, agility, power, strength, flexibility, and coordination.
