Spine and Sports Program at Boston Children's Hospital's Sports Medicine Division

Back pain can be worrisome for anyone and may be particularly concerning for athletes.  

The Boston Children’s Sports Medicine Spine and Sports Program team understands your concerns and is here to help with the care and information you need.

The spine and sports program provides evaluation and full-service treatment for athletes with spine conditions and stable spine injuries. Our multidisciplinary practice includes sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers and orthotists in the NOPCO brace shop. 

The program also coordinates with injury-prevention specialists at The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention to help athletes return to play in peak condition.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
