Children's Hospital Colorado’s Sports Medicine-trained physicians are available to see athletes at several locations. Our Sports Medicine Center has physical therapy gyms within the community that offer young athletes rehabilitation services close to home. The gyms were designed specifically for sports-related rehabilitation with strength, agility, speed and endurance training equipment.

Each facility has uniquely trained physical therapists who specialize in sport-specific evaluation, treatment and guidance for appropriate and successful return to sport.

Center for gait and movement analysis

Our Center for Gait and Movement Analysis  (CGMA), commonly called the “Gait Lab,” is the only center of its kind in our region. Within the lab, specialists use 3D motion-capture technology to analyze muscle activity and limb and body movement.

Using the most advanced computer and video technology, information from the CGMA helps us evaluate and improve performance for young athletes by seeing how they walk, run and move.
