Community Outreach  

The mission of our orthopedic and sports medicine specialists and athletic trainers includes helping local athletes of all levels and ages maintain peak performance through injury prevention education, treatment and rehabilitation.

 

Our orthopedic specialists, physical therapists and athletic trainers dedicate countless hours each year to provide sideline and athletic training-room coverage for hundreds of youth, high school and college teams, as well as adult leagues in the Greater Houston area. We also provide outreach for athletic training and ongoing continuing education events.

 

We take Houston Methodist’s world-class services into communities where high quality sports medicine care is often unavailable. We deliver specialized care to individuals as well as youth leagues, clubs, secondary and college teams, and adult leagues.
