Preventive care is always best, but sometimes that advice comes too late. Our athletic trainers can provide you or your team with the knowledge and resources to prevent sports injuries with our on-site evaluations and education programs.
If an injury has already occurred, we can make sure you know how to treat it properly and efficiently to regain your optimal abilities.
Are concussions a normal part of physical sports? Some seem to think that they are synonymous. They shouldn’t be! Concussions are serious matters that need quality attention and care. At Divine Savior Healthcare, we take precautions to ensure that all head-related injuries are thoroughly monitored and treated.
