Management of physical and emotional issues is critical
Management of injuries is also integral to athletic success. This can include injury prevention, treatment of co-occurring or resultant conditions after injury and collaborative care with other providers including pediatricians, athletic trainers, neurologists and sports medicine physicians to ensure athletes are getting the most comprehensive care necessary for optimal recovery. Understanding the impact of injuries on academic, social and emotional functioning is critical to recovery.
Management of emotional or attention issues is also critical to minimize impairment and ensure optimal performance and enjoyment in athletics.
