Sports Medicine

NCAA BASKETBALL: MAR 7 VMI at RadfordAthletes always want to get back to playing as quickly (and we hope, safely) as possible.  Most of the problems that affect high level athletes also affect the average patient from time to time.  The same techniques that are used in professional and collegiate arenas and the philosophy of higher performance should be available to every patient who is being held back by musculoskeletal pain or medical conditions – from older patients who want simply to walk, to those who want to compete in elite marathons and ironman competitions. The goal of the sports medicine program is to achieve improvement in performance and quality of life, starting with the proper diagnosis and using directed treatments with specific and evidence-based programs.
