What is a Sports Medicine Injury?

The sports medicine professionals at Nebraska Medicine understand that athletes don’t always wear uniforms and athletic injuries can happen anywhere, not just on athletic fields. An athlete is not defined by age, gender, skill level or activity. Injuries resulting from a variety of activities can range from a sprained ankle to a more serious injury such as a sports-related concussion. From sprained ankles to broken bones, our multidisciplinary team will create a customized treatment and rehabilitation plan for your sports injury.

Concussion Management Clinic

No two injuries are the same and no two care plans are the same, but Nebraska Medicine’s Concussion Management Clinic can provide one team of professionals, in one location, to help in the comprehensive management of your injury.

Concussion management relies on the management of the physical, cognitive and behavioral components of the injury. Our team of professionals from physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and language pathology is equipped to manage each of these components. Patients will receive comprehensive care for their injury including assessment, management of post-concussive symptoms and modifications to assist with return to play, return to learn and/or return to work.
