Specialty Treatments for Active Women From Active Women

At the ONS Women’s Sports Medicine Center, we know women’s sports injuries—not just as doctors but as athletes, too.

Our team of experts consists of current and former athletes and fitness enthusiasts who know firsthand what it takes to train, compete, and stay physically fit. They have served as team physicians for numerous international biking and fencing championships, and currently provide medical coverage for the Columbia University women’s teams and the Greenwich High School sports program.

FEMALE ATHLETES AND INJURY

The Women’s Sports Medicine team has experience treating injuries that are most likely to plague active and athletic women, as well as conditions girls are prone to develop while pursuing excellence in sports, dance, and other physical activities. They provide clinical expertise in sports and dance medicine, physiatry and physical therapy, orthopedic surgery, and prenatal and postnatal musculoskeletal health. When needed, referrals for nutritional counseling and psychological support are available.
