At the Marshall Sports Medicine Institute, reaching peak athletic performance means looking beyond regular training and competition. To help you reach your full athletic potential, the MSMI offers:
Athletes and active people need to consume adequate energy during periods of high-intensity and/or long-duration training to maintain body weight and health and maximize training effects. Low energy intake can result in loss of muscle mass and/or bone density, an increased risk of fatigue, injury or illness and a prolonged recovery process. Following appropriate nutritional guidelines will help you reach your health and fitness goals. Learn more about nutrition and nutrition services.
In the field of sports and exercise medicine, sport psychology principles and interventions are well recognized in offering an advantage among physically equal competitors. The goal of sport psychology is to strengthen your mental skills - building confidence, controlling attention, managing energy, setting goals and integrating imagery - in order to help you achieve the mental strength to positively affect your sports performance as well as your life. Learn more about sport psychology and sports counseling services.
The MSMI's licensed sports massage therapists work to enhance your circulation, reduce muscle soreness and improve flexibility, often focusing on the parts of the body that are overused or stressed from your sport or activity. Massage can be effective before or after a high-intensity event and throughout training to help prevent injury, and it's an important element of many injury treatment/rehabilitation plans. Learn more about massage therapy and massage therapy services.
