UR Medicine Orthopaedics & Physical Performance
Our injury prevention programs are designed to help people of all ages develop safer sports practices whether they participate in organized sports, recreational sports or simply want to exercise for a healthier lifestyle.
Many injuries, particularly those that are non-contact injuries, are completely preventable. Most are due to inadequate physical conditioning, poor technique, over-training or over-playing in a single sport.
UR Medicine is a proud participant in the Stop Sports Injury Campaign. To help keep kids in the game for life, STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) targets the sports that have the highest rates of overuse and trauma injuries.
