Endurance athletes

The Sports Medicine Program is dedicated to providing excellent care to the endurance athlete. Our approach is to understand the whole person. We are experienced in the unique injury patterns seen in endurance athletes. We take the time to assess training regimens, equipment choices, race schedules, and eating patterns. We not only focus on helping you recover from the current injury but also understand why it occurred and how to prevent recurrence. We provide individualized care for every athlete, tailoring the treatment plan to each athlete’s specific needs.

Endurance Athlete

To be an endurance athlete takes a unique type of person. It requires long, hard hours on the road or in the pool. Pushing through pain is just part of the challenge. It becomes a part of who you are, not just what you do. As an endurance athlete, you need and deserve a medical team that understands your passion, drive and sacrifice. You need a team that understands the demands put on your body as well as the equipment and training techniques used.
