Sports Medicine Facilities
The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine Injury Prevention Programs are designed to keep young athletes healthy and playing the sports they love. These comprehensive programs are tailored to your athlete’s age, sport and developmental level. All Injury Prevention Programs focus on the keys to injury prevention for all athletes: flexibility, strength, balance, agility, core stability, coordination and body control through functional movements.
The staff of Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine are trained experts in the unique needs of student athletes — from little league to college-level play. In addition to physicians trained in sports medicine for young athletes, the Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine staff includes athletic trainers who are dually credentialed as Certified Athletic Trainers and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists. This experience is vital for knowing how to help your student athlete’s body adapt to the stresses placed upon it — safely.
