Sports medicine is the latest addition to the Health Services clinic. And unlike the common perception of sports medicine as intended for athletes only, the form of specialty care is available to all Boise State students, faculty and staff. It deals with physical fitness and the treatment and prevention related to exercise, physically-demanding work and common everyday injuries.
Ankle sprains, fractures, knee and shoulder injuries, tendonitis, concussions, cramps and strains are just a few of the many injuries that Health Services can treat through sports medicine. The full list of treatable injuries can be found on the University Health Services website. Sports medicine doctors also can provide advice on nutrition, supplements, exercise and injury prevention.
Health Services hired Dr. Trek Lyons to oversee the branch. Dr. Lyons has 16 years of experience providing healthcare to Division I athletes and students at the University of Oregon, University of Utah, Utah State University and the University of Notre Dame. Outside of the clinic, he is a sports medicine physician at St. Luke’s Orthopedics Clinic and St. Luke’s Sports Medicine Clinic in Boise.
No referral is needed to get care. To schedule an appointment, call Health Services at (208) 426-1459 or visit the sports medicine page for more information.
