Female Athlete Program
Ensuring peak performance in the young female athlete
Cook Children's Female Athlete program is designed to evaluate and treat the unique conditions found in the female athlete population. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of a sports medicine physician, a registered dietitian and certified athletic trainers. Additionally, our physician works closely with the sports physical therapist, gynecologist, and endocrinologist to ensure all of the athlete's physical and mental needs are met. Our comprehensive approach works to keep the female athlete healthy and at the top of her game so she can do what she loves most.
