What are the goals and the focus of the program?
Women are at risk for injuries and conditions that may be overlooked in a traditional sports medicine setting. They also respond and heal differently than men, and may have different concerns when they’re injured. Our specialists understand these differences and are experienced in diagnosing, treating and caring for active women.
We focus on injury prevention, not just surgical intervention. We can help you reduce risks, heal from injuries, and prevent health problems. We have all the resources you need to provide for your physical and mental health. We can help you perform safely at your best and enjoy your active lifestyle.
