Comprehensive Care for Active People
Whether you are scheduling appointments with your primary care physician or cranking out an extra set at the gym, you take pride in taking care of your body. At Sports Care®, we understand that desire to be at your physical best. Our staff can meet your primary care needs or your physical training needs. Should you be injured, we can help you through the entire process of rehabilitation.
We also support sports teams and community organizations through our group training and sports care services. Below, we have listed and described our programs and services. Please take a look at our services and learn all the ways we can help you or your athletes reach their goals.
Sports Medicine Primary Care
If you are an athlete, you can truly benefit from having a primary care physician who specializes in sports medicine. All of our sports medicine fellowship-trained physicians specialize in helping you prevent sports-related injuries. They can also help you manage medical conditions that affect performance, including exercise-induced asthma, diabetes and eating disorders.
Feeling fit means feeling great, and staff members at Wildwood Athletic Club believe that feeling great can and should be a way of life. To make that possible, our trainers and staff take fitness and wellness programs well beyond the conventional. You’ll find we take a holistic approach to improving member health with programs to improve the spirit, mind and body.
Wildwood Athletic Club (WAC) is a 40,000 sq. ft. fitness center located, like Sports Care, inside Wildwood Medical Center. The club is staffed with experienced personal trainers who will meet with you one-on-one for training supervision and assistance. If you are currently participating in physical rehabilitation, our trainers will consult with your physical therapist and design a program unique to you and your personal goals for fitness, mobility and strength.
At Sports Care, we use non-surgical techniques to treat sports-related injuries whenever possible. Sometimes, however, surgery is the best option for treatment. At ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital, you can count on expert surgical care from our surgeons and other team members. From your first consultation through your rehabilitation, you will be in good hands.
When you have just had surgery—or when you are recovering from a sports-related injury—you need a physical therapy regimen that will help you get back in the game. Our multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation experts has the know-how to help you restore function as quickly as possible. We are caring, patient, and methodical in our physical therapy techniques, and we are dedicated to helping you thrive during recovery.
We’ve also got you covered once you’re on your own. Our Wildwood Athletic Club is the ideal place for athletes to continue working toward personal goals once they’ve completed formal therapy and no longer need the therapist’s guidance. It is housed inside Wildwood Medical Center, so it is a convenient place for you to continue your training.
What kinds of rehabilitation do we offer at Wildwood Medical Center? Well, our services include:
Our 5,000-square-foot rehabilitation therapy theater is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Wildwood also has a 40,000-square-foot attached fitness facility, full-size basketball court, and indoor track used for sport-specific conditioning and other programs.
Wildwood Medical Center has a 60-foot-long therapy pool for those whose injuries or conditions require aquatic therapy. Water provides the resistance to rebuild muscle, range of motion, and endurance while eliminating the impact stress that can cause re-injury.
Manual therapy is special hands-on therapy that works on restoring your strength, agility and range of motion. Our skilled therapists at Wildwood Medical Center use manual techniques to evaluate and treat posture imbalances, joint problems, and soft tissue problems. Our therapists also regularly measure each athlete’s progress throughout the rehabilitation process.
Functional Rehabilitation for Accelerated Return to Play
If you are training so that you can return to your sport, Wildwood therapists can provide you with training that focuses on the unique physical demands of your sport. This training will help you regain the strength, special conditioning and confidence you need for faster – and safer – return to play.
Not all the work we do at Sports Care takes place in the clinic. Some of our most valuable services take place out in the community—sometimes even on the field. Our community outreach program puts our certified professionals where the action is to help prevent injuries and provide care immediately when injuries occur.
Sports Care certified athletic trainers provide on-site services to high schools and colleges throughout northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. Our trainers will aid and assess injured athletes on the field and follow through with their treatment. We will be there through rehabilitation and will help your athlete return to play. Please call us at 1-800-654-6764 or email us if you have any questions about our community outreach programs.
Game/Community Event Coverage
From football to volleyball, Sports Care physicians and athletic trainers are on the scene at many local schools and community events to offer assistance and medical attention to athletes and coaches.
To help you keep your athletes playing safely, we offer pre-participation physicals throughout the year. These physicals will evaluate the health of your athletes and detect any potential for injury as early as possible. Our athletic trainers assist in preseason injury assessments and concussion screens as part of each player’s pre-participation physical.
As a coach, you know your athletes are counting on you. Our Coaches Edge program provides coaches with information on a variety of topics through interactive lectures and hands-on demonstrations. The topics are sport-specific and include lectures on injury prevention and preseason/in-season training effectiveness.
We also provide Pupil Activity Certification (also known as the sports medicine certification) as well as first aid and CPR training for coaches. First aid training is free to coaches from Sports Care-contracted schools and programs.
