Sports Rehabilitation Clinic
In order to provide a more comprehensive program, Physical Therapy has collaborated with Adolescent Medicine to provide a sports rehabilitation clinic in an outpatient setting within the ACH Adolescent Center. This program is geared to the adolescent athlete with goals that include decreasing incidence of injuries through prevention and pre-participation screenings. In addition, the program provides rehabilitation to the injured athlete in order to return the athlete to competition as quickly as possible. The sports physical therapists and athletic trainers who provide services in the ACH sports medicine clinic have experience in working with all levels of individuals including professional, Olympic, collegiate and junior and senior high school athletes.
