What is Sports Medicine?

Since 1989, Sports Medicine has been a recognized subspecialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Due to the demands of today’s healthcare environment, Sports Medicine specialists are uniquely positioned to meet the ever-growing needs of individual who are looking for state-of-the-art wellness-based solutions.

Co-founded by former NFL stars, Earl Campbell and Gary Baxter, Project Rose Research Institute for Sports Science in Tyler offers a one-of-a-kind facility and research lab dedicated to excellence in Sports Medicine and therapy.

Is Sports Medicine just for the competitive athlete?
Not at all. Sports Medicine specialists are ideal providers for the non-athlete and excellent resources for the individual who wishes to become active or begin an exercise program. For the “weekend warrior” or “industrial athlete” who experiences an injury, the same expertise used for the competitive athlete can be applied to return the individual as quickly as possible to full function.

What is the goal of Sports Medicine and how is it different from other disciplines?
Getting people moving and keeping them healthy is the main goal in Sports Medicine. Of the wide array of medical specialties that exist today, only Sports Medicine is centered within a wellness-based (rather than disease-based) model.

Beyond the abilities of other clinicians, Sports Medicine specialists -- by virtue of their training -- have the capability to take a sedentary population and incorporate the health-beneficial effects of exercise into people’s lives. Most adults (and children) fail to adequately exercise - and studies reveal that at least one quarter are completely sedentary. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of this sedentary population are counseled by their doctor to exercise. At Project Rose, we bridge this gap and provide our clients with the knowledge, support and training to incorporate exercise into their daily lives. As practitioners in Sports Medicine, we stress the beneficial effects of exercise including:

· Reduction in risk of cardiac death
· Reduction in risk of diabetes
· Reduction in risk of high blood pressure
· Reduction in risk of colon cancer
· Reduction of depression and/or anxiety
· Improvement in objective measures of obesity
· Decrease in elderly fall risk by increasing balance and proprioceptive skills (i.e. motion, position and equilibrium).
