Keeping young athletes in the game
That’s our motto at 360 Sports Medicine. While other sports medicine programs focus on getting athletes back into the game after a sports injury, our healthcare professionals go beyond providing treatment. 360 Sports Medicine is the only program serving San Diego and Imperial counties to provide 360 degrees of care — from preventing and treating sports injuries to helping improve the performance of young athletes.
An Orthopedic Injury Clinic for new injuries is also available. Learn more.
Sports Medicine Program Overview
Comprehensive, state-of-the-art care for young athletes is provided by a multidisciplinary team, of health professionals including orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, concussion specialists, physical therapists, nutritionists and certified athletic trainers. Our surgeons are leaders in ligament reconstruction techniques that preserve growth, and our physical therapists work to ensure patients’ fitness prior to returning them to sports.
Our team of health professionals work closely with young athletes’ primary care physician, other specialists, parents and coaches to help them make a safe and rapid return to sports and activities.
360 Sports Medicine offers a full spectrum of services, including:
- Orthopedic assessments and treatment
- Sports physical therapy
- Sports Injury Prevention Program
- Nutrition counseling
- Concussion assessment and treatment
We are uniquely qualified to understand the needs of young athletes of all ages — from little-league to college-level play. That’s because we are the only physicians in San Diego County board certified in sports medicine with pediatric orthopedic fellowship training. No adult sports medicine facility can offer this level of expertise.
