The Cookeville Regional Sports Medicine Center offers comprehensive sports medicine services from injury prevention and conditioning to therapy.
Whatever the playing field, whatever the injury, athletes trust the specialists at Cookeville Regional Sports Medicine Clinic to get them back in the game.
Specialist David Maldonado, a doctor of physical therapy, athletic trainer and sports clinical specialist, can help athletes do just that.
However, before you play, you need to get a sports physical.
The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) says you must get a sports physical. This is also called a PPE (Preparticipation Physical Evaluation). The PPE promotes the health and well-being of athletes as they train and compete. It also helps keep athletes safe as they play sports. It is not meant to stop them from playing.
Mark your calendars!
