High School Program
Since prevention of sports-related injuries is the key, our certified athletic trainers work with students and school athletic trainers to prevent injuries and keep athletes participating safely in sports. While injuries can be an unfortunate part of playing sports, early recognition and treatment can prevent more serious problems and may even prevent lost practice or playing time. At URMC, we provider athletic training coverage and are the preferred Sports Medicine providers for many Rochester, NY area high schools including:
Pre-participation physical examinations
Our pre-participation physicals provide more than just a pass to participate in a sport – they include a comprehensive assessment of each young athlete's starting condition including a flexibility exam, evaluation of strength, a back screen, and an agility test.
- We provide on-field evaluation of injuries to direct athletes to the appropriate care.
Knee Injury Prevention Programs
Studies show that female athletes are two to eight times more likely to sustain an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury than male athletes. Our Prevent Injury, Enhance Performance (PEP) program aims to decrease the incidence of lower extremity injuries in female athletes by offering ways to increase strength, flexibility and agility, as well as awareness of proper body mechanics and technique with athletic tasks.
