This program focuses on strengthening the muscles that improve the position of the knee during high level sports and protect the anterior cruciate ligament. We teach athletes how to land and change direction properly, and to improve cardiovascular fitness which will decrease the level of fatigue during sports competition. High school, middle school, club level athletes, and anyone else who competes in sports would benefit from our knee injury program. The program includes an initial evaluation, instruction in a home training program, medically supervised training session for six weeks, and a post program evaluation.
Shoulder & Elbow Injury Prevention Program
These programs focus on strengthening the muscles that improve the position of the shoulder and elbow during competitive overhead sports. A strong core and good scapular (shoulder blade) control provide a stable base for the upper extremities which allows the arm to focus on more fine motor activities. Having a balance of strength and flexibility will allow the young athlete to perform optimally and will help to prevent overload to the joints and muscles of the upper extremity. Competitive and recreational baseball, softball and volleyball players, competitive swimmers, and other athletes would benefit from the Preventative Shoulder & Elbow Injury Program. The program includes an initial evaluation, instruction in a home training program, medically supervised training sessions for 6 weeks, and a post program evaluation.

Youth Sports Medicine
Stress fractures, sprains and strains are the most common youth sports injuries, often due to overuse. Medical intervention is recommended for acute injuries when pain is persistent, swelling or locking of the joint is present, there is a visible deformity or in the presence of radiating pain. The goal of our youth sports medicine program is to educate the youth on preventive injuries, to treat acute injuries and have them return to their sport better than ever.
