Sports Medicine

The sports medicine program at Banner Health is here to support athletes of all types: professional, casual, weekend warriors, eSports players, even performance artists. We focus on providing the best treatment possible using the latest techniques available to get you back in the game in no time. 

What Is Sports Medicine?

Sports medicine is designed to help athletes of all levels improve their athletic performance, recover from injury and prevent future injuries.

The goal of sports medicine is to:

  • Restore mobility and motor function
  • Increase muscle strength and flexibility
  • Enhance performance
  • Eliminate pain

Is Sports Medicine Different Than Physical Therapy?

While sports medicine and physical therapy are similar in some ways, they are different from one another. A sports therapist will have specialized training in sports rehabilitation and performance enhancement. Physical therapists will work to help people with issues that extend beyond sports activities.
