Preventing injury and illness is a fundamental and desired outcome for the USOPC clinicians. The USOPC’s sports medicine department has a robust sports medicine analytics program to identify opportunities to prevent injury and illness. There have been significant case studies showing decreased injury obtained through the analysis of how injuries occur. The USOPC measures 1,000 variables in its athlete population to identify trends, implement corrective actions and observe high-performance outcomes.

The USOPC’s clinical staff is comprised of physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and massage therapists as well as support from physicians and volunteer medical providers participating in the USOPC Sports Medicine Volunteer Program. Volunteers include physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and massage therapists.
