The physical therapist will establish an individualized treatment plan for all athletes regardless of injury. Here the athlete will receive care and instruction from experienced, licensed staff familiar with their particular injury.

Other Medical Specialists

For injuries requiring the services of medical specialists such as orthopedic surgeons, ear-nose-throat specialists, neurosurgeons and cardiologists, immediate referrals will be made to skilled physicians with an interest in sports related injuries.

Pre-Participation Exam

CIF rules mandate all student-athletes must complete and pass a Pre-Participation Examination (PPE) by a qualified physician each year before they will be allowed to play. The SMC is happy to provide this service to student-athletes. The SMC physician will screen the athlete for health concerns that might be made worse by participating in athletics. Health concerns may be identified early, thus reducing the risk of further injury or health problems and often allowing the athlete to address these issues in time to still play safely. PPE exams cost $31.
