New center aims to prevent sports injuries

This month orthopedic surgeon Lyle J. Micheli, MD, opened the doors to The Micheli Center for Sports Injury Prevention in Waltham, MA.

Micheli is director of the Division of Sports Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital, and clinical professor of orthopaedic surgery at Harvard Medical School in Boston.

The center’s clinicians, scientists, activists, and technologists are focused on encour­aging sports and exercise, especially among children and young adults.

They are also seeking evidence-based strategies to help active individuals reduce their risk of injury and enhance sports performance.

In addition to its clinical program, the center’s scientists will conduct medical and scientific research on sports injury prevention and the effects of exercise on health and wellness while working to develop innovative methods of promoting exercise in children.
