Sports

West Virginia University's Sports Medicine Center provides comprehensive care for college, non-professional, and recreational athletes.

Our physicians have expertise evaluating and treating musculoskeletal injuries using a wide variety of rehabilitative techniques. Not only do we manage injuries and medical conditions in athletes and performers, including muscle and joint pain, sprains, and concussions, but we treat and help manage illnesses, such as asthma and diabetes, that can hinder performance. We also provide evaluations for clearing athletes to return to their sport following illness or injury.

As a part of a major academic teaching center, we use a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment and education of our patients. Our physicians have easy access to a full range of specialists and a variety of opinions, including orthopaedic sub-specialists and experts from the WVU Spine Center.
