Improve your performance and prevent injuries.
What is Sports Medicine? Sports medicine is therapy that can be utilized when a child, teen, or adult is injured from a sporting activity, exercise activity, or other activities involving high skill levels.
Who is a specialist? Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers work together to help get you back to your activities/sports as soon as possible.
When to get seen by a Sports Medicine specialist? NOW! Iowa has Direct Access, which means you can see a Physical Therapist to get an evaluation without a referral from a physician. Depending on the severity, your therapist will either continue to get you better quickly or refer you to see the appropriate doctor that can help.
