What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine incorporates the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of athletic and activity-related injuries, as well as the study and development of performance enhancement programs and devices. The complex nature of the field of Sports Medicine requires multiple highly trained professionals, who work as a team to achieve the desired results of the active individual.
Physicians and surgeons, physical therapists, athletic trainers and exercise physiologists are just a few of the professionals that make up the Idaho Sports Medicine Institute team. Our staff evaluates and treats athletic and activity-related injuries, develops preventative programs, educates members of the public, and attends athletic events to provide medical assistance. Our specialties include nutrition, gait and biomechanical analysis, strength and fitness programs, concussion management, sports psychology, and more. We educate medical providers, coaches, and athletes concerning injury prevention, first aid treatment, and rehabilitation.
Sports Medicine specialists work with professional, individual and team athletes as well as those participating in recreational physical activities. Whether you are a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, Idaho Sports Medicine Institute is here for you.
Our philosophy at ISMI has always been to get each patient back to his or her sport as soon as possible. A heavy emphasis on rehabilitation often allows the patient to improve without having to undergo surgery. Our motto: “You don’t play sports to get fit, you get fit to play sports.”
