Sports Medicine

Whether you’re an elite athlete, a recreational athlete, or just looking to incorporate exercise into your regular routine, Rutgers Student Health offers Sports Medicine services that can help you stay healthy and active.

Our healthcare providers work closely with trainers, physical therapists, orthopedic and podiatric surgeons, nutritionists, and other medical specialists to help you reach and maintain you activity goals.

Referrals can be made as needed.

What We Offer

Evaluation

We offer medical evaluation prior to initiating an exercise program as well as consultation/evaluation for safely returning to activity after an injury or illness.

Diagnosis

In the event of an acute injury (a sprained ankle, for example), a student may be given an appointment with a primary care provider. Any of our healthcare providers can make an initial evaluation and order diagnostic testing if indicated.

Treatment

If deemed necessary, a follow-up visit can be arranged for a sports medicine evaluation. If a student is experiencing a chronic issue (knee pain with running for example), they can schedule a Sports Medicine evaluation in advance.
