Welcome to the Sports Medicine Center

The Sports Medicine Physical Therapy program at Children’s Hospital Colorado provides sports injury physical therapy services for active children and young athletes. Our team of sports medicine physical therapists provide each athlete with a customized, at-home exercise program. They also offer both the athlete and their parents information about the important role physical therapy plays in making a safe and healthy return to sports. If an injury requires surgery, a sports medicine therapist acts as a liaison between the surgeon and the family, reporting progress to the doctor on a regular basis.
