Sports Nutrition and Sports Psychology

When it comes to sports performance, what you eat and how you think can affect your play, as can hydration and sleep. Premier Orthopedics addresses these pillars of sports performance to help athletes elevate their game.

Our physicians are fellowship trained in sports medicine and offer advanced experience to address a broad range of sports medicine issues. Whether your goal is getting more from your workouts or helping your young athlete reach peak performance, we can help get you there.

Sports Nutrition for Adult Athletes

As our bodies age and change, our nutrition and exercise needs can shift. What worked in our 20s may no longer provide the same results. Nutrition choices especially can boost or derail performance, weight control, and overall wellness goals.

You’ve still got game! Let us guide you toward a custom nutrition and exercise plan that works for your body, your goals, and your life.
