Our Roster

Our roster of pros includes sports medicine physicians, physiatrists, and athletic trainers who educate athletes about how to reduce their risk for injuries.

Sports medicine physicians are primary care physicians that have had fellowship training in sports medicine. This includes extended training and Continuing Medical Education on diagnosis and treatment of concussions and other muskuloskeletal issues.  Sports medicine physicians treat nonsurgical conditions as well as medical issues associated with sports and athletics.

Physiatrists are nerve, muscle and bone experts and are specifically trained in treating brain injuries. They specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation. They diagnose pain and design a treatment plan that can be carried out with the help of the physician's medical team. Each of Group Health’s physicians has completed an accredited residency training and an evaluation to assess their knowledge, experience and skills.

Athletic trainers are health care professionals that work under the direction of physicians. Athletic trainers are clinically and academically qualified to medically treat patients and clients of all ages in any physical setting. Public safety, injury and illness prevention and early intervention are keystones to athletic training. Typically, an athletic trainer administers the ImPACT test and a physician reviews and interprets the results.
