Women's Sports Medicine Clinic
The Women’s Sports Medicine Clinic at UW Health in Madison, Wisconsin, is designed to treat the unique needs of female athletes.
The incidence of certain sports injuries in females is higher than males. Additionally, female athletes’ injuries are often the result of a number of issues including nutrition, hormones, anatomy and changes due to pregnancy.
The Women's Sports Medicine Clinic is for women who:
- Are 12-50 years old
- Participate in a sport or exercise
- Want to return to sport or activity following an injury
Our team of female sports medicine experts have extensive experience working with athletes of all levels. They recognize the health and wellness challenges specific to active women and are dedicated to returning female athletes to sport following an injury.
The first visit includes an evaluation and treatment recommendation by a female Sports Medicine physician and a sports rehabilitation therapist.
Following the exam, a care plan is created that may include counsel on sports medicine, rehabilitation, nutrition, sport psychology, biomechanical video analysis, performance improvement and injury prevention.
