Know the score! To keep your child off the bench and in the game, help them stay injury-free. Get the latest tips and suggestions from the top team in town: the Cook Children's SPORTS medicine team, here.
Our physicians, therapists, nurses and technologists work exclusively with kids and understand the unique needs of a growing athlete's bones, muscles, body and mind.
As a part of Cook Children's integrated pediatric health care system, our patients have access to a multitude of pediatric specialty areas with board certified doctors, as well as laboratory services, nutritional consultations and sports medicine counseling. Patients benefit from this integrated system because it allows our staff to use all of the system's resources during treatment. It also improves communication between the various departments whose physicians are focused on caring for children and adolescents.
Cook Children's orthopedic surgeons are trained to treat a wide range of pediatric athletes, including beginners, special needs and those on select teams. Patient services range from assessments and examinations, such as X-rays, regular monitoring and bracing, to surgery, if necessary. Patients also have access to a Cook Children's pediatric orthotist.
Our SPORTS team helps the patient focus on proper rehabilitation and future injury prevention. Patients receive care from physical therapists who are former college athletes with experience and specialization in a variety of sports. Our team provides timely evaluation of injuries for a safe return to sports and play with customized rehabilitation plans and one-on-one care.
The SPORTS Program at Cook Children's offers educational material for parents, coaches, trainers and nurses for sport-specific injuries. Our team of experts have specialized training in pediatrics and collaborate together to share their knowledge in growing bodies and dynamic training principles.
Kids aren't just small adults. Their bones are different. Their growth is different. Their pain is different.
Our physicians, therapists, nurses and technologists work exclusively with children and teens every day. They understand the needs of a growing athlete's bones, muscles, body and mind.
When it comes to kids, anything can happen: a sprained ankle at a little league game, a bad cough, spiking fever, dog bite, even marbles stuck in the nose. And it usually happens when your regular doctor is unavailable, which is why Cook Children's Urgent Care Centers open early and stay open late.
