Biomedical Research Tower | 460 W 12th Ave, Columbus, OH 43210

With the high prevalence of participation in endurance sports and injury rates, it is becoming more common for endurance athletes to seek care from their primary care provider(s), musculoskeletal/orthopedic specialists, physical therapists and other allied medical providers.

An understanding of the mechanics of the involved sport, the various rehabilitation and treatment options, the cardiovascular needs and condition of endurance athletes, the equipment needs of endurance athletes, and appropriate training and activity modification is critical to success in treating endurance sport participants.
