The Athletic Medicine Institute (AMI) specializes in the treatment, testing and preventive care of sports-related injuries and conditions.

The staff understands the importance of returning to play as quickly and as safely as possible so AMI physicians have agreed to see any AMI patient as a priority client. To help ensure prompt service, please use the phone number above when scheduling any appointment.

Customized Athletic Events

Individualized or Team Assessments

Athletes and coaches know the importance of working together as a team. And that's why we'll also work with coaches and associated trainers to bring a fit test on location -- so you can work together to achieve team goals better and faster.

McLaren Macomb's Athletic Medicine Institute can bring a customized screening program or education event to area schools, or sports teams. In addition to the assessments below, our team can provide health screenings, speakers, or other educational components. For more information call (586) 992-9031.

Motion Analysis System

The McLaren Macomb motion analysis system is a high definition, computerized video analysis of the human body in motion. Sport-specific activities are recorded and broken down by one of our skilled licensed physical therapists providing an analyzed assessment of the mechanics of any activity. They'll analyze athletic performance including throwing motion, golf swing, running, jumping, and racquet sports.

Computerized Concussion Evaluation System

To help determine if an athlete has a concussion, the Athletic Medicine Institute team uses a computer-based evaluation system to help diagnose and manage a potential concussion. It also provides a baseline test that physicians can use for comparison in the event of an injury.

This scientifically validated system looks at the athlete's performance during various cognitive functions. The results give physicians useful information for comparing pre and post-injury assessments. The results of both tests give comprehensive information the physician may use to determine if it is safe for the athlete to return to play.

Each computerized test uses state--of-the art software to measure an individual athlete's symptoms, reaction time, attention span, working memory, and problem solving, so that analysis and recommendations can be made to improve the athlete's skills and ability.

At the McLaren Athletic Institute we're committed to supporting the achievement of each athlete's goals.

Girls ACL Injury Prevention Program

Compared to male athletes, female athletes are four times more likely to injure the knees' anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Training on the appropriate body mechanics while athletes are younger can lead to lasting techniques that help reduce the chance of an injury. The AMI has developed an ACL injury prevention program designed especially for girls ages 12 to 18. Instructed by Licensed Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists
