Sports Health Operations Consulting

This service is for athletic organizations or teams who are not adequately equipped to provide basic sports medicine services to their athletes.  Do not wait until an athlete suffers a major injury to address your teams' medical needs and medical policies.

Athletic Training Services

  AthCare offers Board Certified Athletic Trainers and other sports health professionals to provide services for athletic organizations, individual teams, special events or camps.  If you don't have an Athletic Trainer at a sporting event, your athletes are NOT receiving the medical care that they are entitled to. 

Performance Enhancement Training

Even the best athletes can improve their performance.  With AthCare Performance Camps and video instuction, individual athletes or teams can receive the best in professional instruction to improve speed, agility, and quickness - which can result in better results on the playing field and more wins for the team!

Concussion Care for Athletes

All athletes are at risk for concussions!  Recent events have made the Sports Medicine community aware of ways to protect our athletes.  Through this service, learn how to decrease the risk and avoid the long term effects of this VERY COMMON SPORTS INJURY. You should not be afraid to learn about concussions, but you should be afraid if you don't.

Enrollment into AthCare's Athlete Concussion Program includes a PRE-CONCUSSION BASELINE test.  This is one of the best means of assessing the effects of a concussion and may help the athlete, parent, coach, athletic trainer, and physician make the decision on when an athlete is safe to return to activity after suffering a concussion. YOU CAN NOT TREAT A CONCUSSION LIKE A SPRAINED ANKLE (after all, you can't see swelling and bruising in the head like you can at the ankle). Contact AthCare now to enroll!
