About the Women’s Sports Medicine Clinic
Women today are more physically active than ever, participating in athletics and fitness activities ranging from basketball to Zumba to triathalons. Female athletes have increased sport and exercise-related injuries and conditions that require understanding of the female body.
The Women’s Sports Medicine Clinic provides convenient after-hours access to experts who will care for acute and chronic sports-related injuries. The all-woman team of former collegiate athletes will discuss approaches to injury prevention and performance enhancement in a convenient one-stop clinic. Additionally we serve as a team of physicians for U.S. Speed Skating, University of Utah Athletics, and multiple high school athletic programs.
Women seen in the clinic may receive same-day physical therapy treatments, access to sports nutritionists, exercise physiologists and injury prevention programs to match their needs and performance goals.
