The Mayo Clinic opened its Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center expansion at the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center on May 5. According to a Mayo Clinic news release, the new space in Rochester, Minn, offers performance solution programs, including hockey, golf, running, baseball/softball, anterior cruciate ligament injury prevention, return-to-sport, and EXOS training. The programs begin with personalized assessment and are then tailored to meet individual needs, regardless of age or level of athletic achievement.

The space features multiple playing surfaces, such as hardwood and artificial ice, and specialized lifting platforms. Michael Stuart, MD, co-director of the Sports Medicine Center, says, “Our team of physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and strength and conditioning specialists will help prevent injury, refine skills and speed recovery so people can spend more time doing what they love at the highest level possible.”

The Mayo Clinic news release notes that training capabilities in the new space are enhanced through collaboration with EXOS, a training organization based on mindset, nutrition, movement and recovery. Mayo Clinic and EXOS staff will work together to deliver sports medical care and human performance training solutions.
