With a focus on prevention, Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine works with sports programs to decrease the number of injuries that occur. If an injury does occur, the clinical staff works with the patient, family, athletic trainer, coach and primary care physician to assist in the recovery of the injury by developing a treatment plan and recommending future sports activities. The program is designed to be a resource for all the athlete’s health care needs within Children’s Hospital.
