The demands athletes place on their bodies can be extreme. When they push themselves to succeed at the highest levels of their sport, the wear and tear on muscles, ligaments, and joints, is more pronounced. Effective care that quickly identifies an issue, repairs damage, and develops a rehabilitation program that quickly returns that athlete to the field or court is essential.
