New Service – Sport Medicine

Starting this fall, Summit Sport Physiotherapy and Lifemark Health are proud to provide FCHS athletes and Coaches with an elite level of sport medicine support.

Athletes who develop stronger, smarter and more flexible muscles perform better.  We give your players the tools they need to be better performers.  When injuries do occur, we provide a comprehensive assessment, detailed treatment planning and a clear return to sport plan.

Athletes who understand their bodies, and how to care for them are more durable. Durable athletes gain more from teaching/ training and enjoy the game!
