The sports medicine department is part of Pick PT, the High-Performance Medical Center. The department offers sports medical diagnostics, guidance and treatment tailored to all athletes.

Sports Medicine

You can go to the general Rexburg sports medicine department for an injury consultation, exercise-related complaints or a sports medical examination (formerly: sports examination) at a sports doctor. People with a chronic condition who want to exercise again can also contact us for exercise advice.

Sports Medicine Focus Areas

Sports medicine mainly focuses on the following areas of interest:

  • diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries
  • exercise-related complaints (e.g., shortness of breath with exertion)
  • sports medical examination with possibly an exercise test (formerly: sports examination)
  • guidance of chronically ill who want to exercise more

Treatment And Inspection

Pick PT’s sports doctors to assist both amateur and professional athletes. They treat injuries but also give advice. In addition, they support people with a chronic illness or disability with sports. Even if you are not yet sporting but are considering starting this, you can contact Pick PT for advice and/or an inspection.

The sports doctors work together with other specialists, such as orthopedic surgeons and physiotherapists. If necessary, they can refer you to a (sports) dietician. Sports doctors can use our options to take X-rays, MRI scans, and perform blood tests.

Injury Consultation

Our special injury consultation is available for those who suffer from an injury. This may concern acute or permanent knee, ankle, hip, shoulder, back, or wrist complaints. During the consultation, the sports doctor usually makes a diagnosis quickly. He will then draw up a treatment plan with you.

The sports doctor can often treat you himself. Or he can advise you on, for example, adjustments in material, training schedules, diet, or the adjustment of a racing bike. During the consultation, you can also ask questions about nutrition, sports equipment, preventive braces, or sports with a disability or a chronic illness.

Sports Medical Examinations

A sports medical examination beforehand is essential if you want to exercise responsibly. This research enables us to identify risk factors for cardiovascular disease promptly. In addition, with the sports doctor’s advice, you can prevent future injuries and other health problems. We offer various types of sports medical examinations.
