Elite Sports Medicine

Lipscomb Academy, in partnership with Elite Sports Medicine and Orthopedics, is dedicated to providing excellent care for our student-athletes. Lipscomb Academy and Elite have a long-standing relationship that services every aspect of the healthcare continuum from our athletic trainer to services provided by our sports medicine physician. The Elite Sports Medicine and Orthopedic community offers a variety of services for our student-athletes such as sports physicals, orthopedic care and physical therapy. 

Athlete Care

The goal of the Lipscomb Academy sports medicine staff is to provide the highest quality comprehensive care to our student-athletes throughout their athletic participation. To accomplish this we employ two certified athletic trainers in partnership with Elite Sports Medicine. They work closely with our student-athletes in preventing, diagnosing and treating athletic injuries in and out of season. Continued efforts are made to give student-athletes exceptional holistic care, and intentional thought and preparation go into this healthcare continuum. A circle of care is created for every athlete by involving a myriad of professionals who can speak into a comprehensive health and wellness plan.  The sports medicine trainers are available to all athletes and usually arrive by 9:00 am Monday – Friday during the school year.
