Stanford Sports Medicine
Stanford’s Sports Medicine Program is dedicated to providing the best possible medical care for the student athlete’s injuries and illnesses. The program is unique in its team approach to health care, as the Team Physicians, Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, and Sports Scientists all collaborate on the care provided to each athlete. The team physicians provide diagnosis, treatment, arrange for consultations, order lab tests, x-rays and MRIs, and make decisions on the participation status. Athletic trainers work under the supervision of our team physicians to provide prevention, evaluation, and treatment of athletic injuries. Physical therapists design specific programs for rehabilitation and communicate directly with the athletic trainer, physician, and sports performance coaches. Sport Scientists work with coaches and athletes to test and analyze athletes using state-of-the-art motion capture, biomechanics and physiology equipment. More…
Our staff of athletic trainers have an expansive background of evaluation and rehabilitative techniques that make them uniquely qualified to manage the healthcare of the over 900 Stanford student-athletes. The Sports Medicine staff is charged with ensuring the safety of the Stanford student-athlete, allowing them to achieve their optimal performance.
