The Inova Sports Medicine team is a physician-based team of experts in Northern Virginia trained in recognizing the signs and symptoms of concussion.
Injury prevention is an important part of treatment for patients at any age. Our sports medicine-certified physical therapists and athletic trainers provide expert counseling and guidance to help patients take care of themselves. In addition, we have physical therapists and athletic trainers certified in Sportsmetrics™, a national ACL injury prevention program.
Injury prevention includes seeking medical attention for an injury before it gets worse, ensuring that equipment and gear fit properly and taking activity breaks. We work with coaches and athletic trainers throughout the community to educate their teams about injury care and prevention. Learn more about our community outreach blue arrow
We provide comprehensive concussion care, assessing the injury and determining when it is safe to return to play.
It is important to seek prompt medical attention for a concussion. If you are concerned that you or a loved one has sustained a concussion, call our Concussion Hotline for advice.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment
Our team includes an expert in osteopathic manipulative treatment, also called osteopathic manipulation. Many times, we can treat or prevent injuries by manipulating, or moving, your joints and muscles. We often use this therapy in conjunction with physical therapy to treat joint pain, muscle pain, lower back pain and neck pain.
