Riverside Medical Clinic is dedicated to the care of young athletes in our community with our top-tier Sports Clinic. We understand the sports your children play and the demands each sport places on their growing bodies. Our team personalizes each athlete’s treatment based on his or her sport and age. We provide diagnosis, treatment, arrange for consultations, order lab tests, X-rays and MRIs, and help you make decisions on participation status.
We believe student athletes require special care. Here’s why:
- Proper diagnosis and prompt treatment are critical to preventing long-term effects.
- Ligaments tend to be stronger than bones in young athletes. As such, children are more prone to certain types of fractures.
- As adolescents experience rapid growth spurts, it can have an impact on sports performance. While they increase in body size and muscle strength, there may also be a decline in balance and body control as they adjust.
- Growth plates (the section of cartilage at the end of the growing bone) are at their weakest during puberty growth spurts and more susceptible to overuse and repetitive stress, such as from the gymnast practicing the same routine for many hours each week or the pitcher perfecting a fastball.
Riverside Medical Clinic is proud to have a pediatric neurologist on staff to screen and treat suspected concussions for our student athletes.
We provide best-in-class support using ImPACT Applications’ concussion care management tools and resources to make reliable clinical decisions.
