Many people in today’s society choose to participate in athletics. Some are professionals whose physical performance is their livelihood, many are students who pursue sports in conjunction with academics, and still others are avid amateurs who participate in sports for recreation and physical fitness.
All athletes compete with different skill levels, different motivations and different goals but with one shared need: the need for a fully integrated, comprehensive sports medicine program that can be tailored to each athlete’s goals. Unfortunately, injuries that occur during or related to athletic competition have become common among today’s active population. At ICON, our philosophy is to provide all athletes with the same high quality level of care.
A dedication to keeping the athletic community healthy and active is evidenced by the comprehensive nature of the programming at ICON. In addition to providing specialized assessment and treatment for sports-related injuries, our clinical team is also actively involved in educating our area’s athletes, coaches, and parents about injury prevention and recognition. The ICON team provides programs to the community which teach proper strength building, flexibility, conditioning, endurance, and training techniques, help to minimize the risk of injury occurrence.
