Information for Healthcare Providers

Age-appropriate care is essential for young athletes to return and perform at their highest level. This includes early recognition and early treatment to prevent recurring injuries. Nationwide Children's Hospital Sports Medicine works closely with families, coaches, and you, the health care professional.

Please use this Health Care Providers section of our website for quick reference to injuries and illnesses that occur to those growing athletes that you may encounter in your practice and at your job setting. Feel free to print and distribute these educational resources to those athletes and families, who are seeking your council.
