YSSA April Newsletter: Member Spotlight

In April 2013, The Micheli Center - For Sports Injury Prevention opened its doors to the public and immediately started to address the sports injury epidemic.  The idea behind the faility began nearly twenty years ago when Lyle Micheli, MD was reviewing the original 1974 charter for the Sports Medicine Division of the Orthopeidcs Department at Boston Children's Hospital.  In that charter, three goals were laid out - to diagnose, treat, and prevent sports injuries. 

Today, The Micheli Center:

  • Offers trainees evidence-based strategies to help reduce their risk of injury while enhancing their sports performance.
  • Conducts world-class medical and scientific research focused on the prevention of sports injuries and the effects of exercise on health and wellness.
  • Develops innovative methods of promoting exercise in children.
  • Develops practical strategies that help young athletes reduce their risk of injury as they prepare for a healthier future.
  • Seeks to advance the field of sports medicine by revealing current injury patterns and risk factors while developing new methods, strategies, and technologies for preventing injuries.
  • Opens it's doors to anyone seeking a healthier lifestyle, including those with medical conditions or illnesses which may have previously limited their abilities.
  • Invites fellow clinicians, researchers, and educators to collaborate with us as we discover new ways to prevent, assess, and treat sports injuries.
  • Partners with leaders in youth training in order to make sure that the exercise prescriptions given to our trainees are executed correctly, maximizing their potential benefit.
