Sports psychiatry can optimize athletic success
Success in athletics is based not just on physical talent and strength but requires mental and emotional stability as well. While most athletes can identify the importance of mental preparation in sports, there is significantly more time and emphasis placed on physical preparation. Improving one’s understanding and development of mental preparation skills can lead to significant improvements in performance.
Sports psychiatry is geared towards optimizing athletic success by incorporating mental skills preparation, which can include but is not limited to visualization, stress management, relaxation techniques and imagery to improve mastery of skills.

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.
