Athletes know that teamwork is an important element of success – and teamwork is what sets Akron Children’s apart from other sports medicine providers. Our sports medicine team diagnoses and treats sports- and activity-related injuries. We work closely with Akron Children’s orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists who specialize in sports rehabilitation.

Every athlete receives a customized treatment plan and guidance on how to prevent future injuries. We offer sports psychology to help athletes with sports performance and recovery from injury, along with a sports nutritionist to teach athletes how to fuel their bodies. Our goal is to help young athletes return to the activities they love as quickly and safely as possible.
