Sports-Minded Medical Professionals Share Your Passion

Our Sports Medicine team members include certified athletic trainers and experienced physical therapists. They work closely with skilled, board-certified orthopedic surgeons and other physicians on the Medical Staff of Southwest General. These physicians diagnose injuries and recommend the best treatment and rehabilitation options for athletes.

Once a physician has referred an athlete for treatment, Sports Medicine team members create a personalized program to meet the athlete’s individual needs and return him or her to optimum health and performance as safely and quickly as possible.

Southwest General Sports Medicine provides expert care and attention to students at many local high schools including:

A certified athletic trainer is assigned to each school and is on site to help with practices and games and to foster cooperation among coaches, physicians, physical therapists and others involved in helping student athletes.

If an athletic injury requires evaluation, Southwest General Sports Medicine physicians assure that the athlete is seen quickly and monitor his or her condition to help coaches make decisions about the athlete’s participation in practices and games. Sports Medicine trainers and physicians also are available to speak with parents who are encouraged to call to discuss their athlete’s training or medical condition.
