For most of us, sports mean enjoying competition - whether it is a team or an individual sport. In addition, the physical and mental benefits of sports and exercise programs are medically recognized and undisputed. An injury may place your sports participation in jeopardy or slow your training schedule. If an injury does occur, you owe yourself the proper treatment and care offered by the sports medicine professionals at the USA Center for Human Performance and Joint Restoration.
The purpose of the USA Sports Medicine Program is to provide a comprehensive approach to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of sports related injuries. Sound medical expertise, tailored to the specific needs of athletes - from Little Leaguers to Retired Rebounders - is as close as the Sports Medicine Program at the Center for Human Performance and Joint Restoration. The USA Sports Medicine Program is designed to serve the entire community - from the recreational runner to the collegiate or professional athlete.
