• JamesonCraneSportsMed
The Jameson Crane Sports Medicine Institute is the Midwest’s largest and most advanced sports medicine facility. Conveniently located just off State Route 315 at the Ackerman Road exit, it is the­ home of innovation and discovery in helping people improve their athletic performance, recover from injury and prevent future injuries. The 116,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art complex integrates research, teaching, clinical care and performance training under one roof.
Our research is focused on learning what causes athletic injuries, developing preventive interventions and enhancing how we get patients back to an active lifestyle. For instance, the work in our Motion Analysis and Performance Lab is a collaborative effort between engineers, athletic trainers, physical therapists, physicians and coaches to measure how athletes move. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Surgical Skills Lab, opening in 2019, will provide a controlled environment for evaluating the latest products, advancing technical skills outside of the operating room and exploring innovative new procedures.

Sports Medicine Outpatient Surgery Center A Department of Ohio State University Hospitals

Suite 1100

Surgeries offered at this location include sports and orthopedic outpatient procedures such as ACL repairs, rotator cuff surgeries, hip arthroplasty and other procedures that don’t require an overnight hospital stay.

Motion Analysis and Performance Lab

Suite 3120

The Motion Analysis and Performance Lab conducts full-body motion analysis and neuromuscular control assessment. High-speed motion capture cameras record split-second movements, while hidden force plates embedded in the floor record the forces acting on each foot. We can record the activations of muscles during an activity with electromyography equipment, while isokinetic strength testing allows us to test muscle strength. Using these technologies, we can identify the wrist movements resulting in a service ace or service fail in tennis, torques acting on the knee that may lead to an ACL rupture, motor control deficits that may lead to back pain or strength imbalances that may lead to rotator cuff tears.
