It's every parent's worst nightmare—one minute you're cheering on your son in the heat of an attempted touchdown, and the next minute he's knocked unconscious and needs immediate medical attention. Emotions can run high in a moment like this. Jackson Hospital sports medicine does its best to help alleviate some of the stress that can follow.
Sports medicine is a joint effort among Jackson Hospital, Alabama Orthopedic Specialists and Rehab Associates. Its purpose is to provide comprehensive medical care to both the professional and recreational athlete. Licensed healthcare professionals are at the majority of local sporting events. We even have a Friday Football clinic at Jackson Hospital to treat sports injuries during the football season.
If you or a family member has an athletic injury and needs a physician who specializes in sports medicine, call 334-293-8500.
