We are clinicians, scientists, activists, and technologists dedicated to encouraging sports and exercise, especially among children and young adults, while simultaneously preventing sports injuries. We offer our trainees evidence-based strategies to help reduce their personal risk of injury while enhancing their sports performance.

We conduct world-class medical and scientific research focused on the prevention of sports injuries and the effects of exercise on health and wellness.  We develop innovative methods of promoting exercise in children.

We use current medical and scientific information to develop practical strategies that help young athletes reduce their risk of injury as they prepare for a healthier future. We seek to advance the field of sports medicine by revealing current injury patterns and risk factors while developing new methods, strategies, and technologies, for preventing injuries.

We open our doors to anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle, including those with medical conditions or illnesses that may have previously limited their abilities.  We invite fellow clinicians, researchers, and educators to collaborate with us as we discover new ways to prevent, assess, and treat sports injuries.
