Sports Medicine

If you are experiencing pain related to an injury, then our sports medicine team can help. An athletic trainer (AT) is an allied health care professional who specializes in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, management and rehabilitation of athletic injuries.  Additional services include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, stabilization exercises, and techniques to enhance flexibility and range of motion. 

Our certified athletic trainer is licensed in the state of Washington, is certified as a Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and is a member of the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) and National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). She also works closely with the Student Health Center to ensure that the proper care is provided for each member, and if needed will refer you to another specialist.

NEW! We've recently added a new treatment called Graston Technique to the healthcare services we provide.  The Graston Technique involves the use of instruments to treat scar tissue and fascial adhesions, leading to a reduction in pain and an end to your dysfunction.  Check out this brochure
