Sports Performance & Injury Prevention - Fairmont
Sports-related injuries can be devastating and often require surgery, intensive rehabilitation and months away from your sport. If your sport requires jumping, pivoting, twisting or lunging movements, you are at risk for an injury.
Our team of sports medicine physicians, surgeons and rehabilitation specialists are available to help you recover should an injury occur. However, we realize injury prevention is the best option to keep you in the game, and it's our highest priority. Injury prevention also can keep your health care costs down.
The Sports Performance and Injury Prevention Program combines physical therapy and sports medicine, and centers on improving athletic performance and preventing injuries.
It focuses on regaining proper neuromuscular control through:
