Sports Medicine Services
UPMC Sports Medicine offers a complete range of services to help athletes — young or old, pro or amateur — reach their peak performance.
We focus on preventing and treating sports-related injuries and illnesses and our advanced training programmes may help improve many aspects of athletic performance.

UPMC Sport Medicine offers one-on-one and group sports performance training and conditioning. We've built an evidence-based programme to help athletes of all levels increase strength and improve flexibility and core strength.

Our experts can custom-build a team training programme to help with:
- Pre-season conditioning
- In-season conditioning and strength training
- Off-season training and conditioning
Sports Performance Testing
We offer a series of tests that measure how an athlete's body performs during exercise and sports activity. It provides important quantitative data on which coaches, trainers, or physiotherapists can build a customised plan for performance.
Functional Movement Assessment
An in-depth functional movement assessment (FMA) may identify issues that prevent athletes from reaching their peak. Our experts will use data from the FMA to create a safe, scientifically-based strength and conditioning programme that fits each athlete's unique needs. The FMA is a three-step process that measures an athlete's posture and walking/running gait, and based on this information, delivers a clinical evaluation on which a corrective exercise programme is developed.
The functional movement assessment analyses muscle imbalances that may hinder an athlete's ability to reach optimum performance or lead to injury. We use the term "functional" because we evaluate movement patterns specific to each sport, not muscle groups. The assessment involves:
- Ground reaction forces
- Mass and momentum
- Three planes of motion
