What is Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine is a term used to describe the therapeutic elements associated with exercise and sports. Hereford Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine's Certified Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists have over 50 years combined experience in providing sports medicine to a variety of athletes, including recreational counsel, high school, collegiate and professional programs.

Our sports medicine model incorporates:

  • Injury Prevention Programs.
  • Immediate Recognition, Evaluation and Assessment of injuries.
  • Rapid onset of treatment, rehabilitation and reconditioning.
  • Safe return to play and activity.

Our Sports Medicine Team establishes relationships with local sports medicine physicians, nurses, dietitians, and other health care clinicians to provide the highest quality athletic health care available in the Baltimore metropolitan area.

Communication among all members of the health care team is essential to ensure continuity of care both on and off the field. We constantly strive to keep open communication between the athlete, members of the health care team, parents, and coaches. We work on the sidelines as well as in the clinic, and our goal is to facilitate the wellness and safe return to play for of our athlete patients.

Our treatment programs place special emphasis on the prevention of injury as well as the rehabilitation of an injury once they occur. We understand the importance of training and conditioning to prevent further injury. Thus, patient education is a large part of treatment, and helps to guarantee results.

Our standard of excellence makes us one of the best true Sports Medicine facilities in Baltimore County.
