Why Choose The Sports Medicine Center
Sports Medicine can be defined as the study of the mechanics, prevention and treatment of injuries occurring during organized and leisure recreational sports activities. At the Sports Medicine Center at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene, our goals are to prevent and treat injuries that do occur in a timely and effective manner, enabling athletes, dancers, gymnasts, and all those who participate in strenuous physical activities to return to those activities as soon as possible.
The components of the coordinated Sports Medicine Program include education, training and conditioning, as well as "on field" and clinical management of injuries. The primary focus is on providing education, prevention and management of sports related injuries by a staff of specially trained and credentialed clinicians.
