Texas Children’s Motion Analysis and Human Performance Laboratory sees more than 200 young athletes annually as part of our comprehensive Sports Medicine Program. Information obtained from our lab helps the athlete’s care team:

  • Identify motions that increase injury risk so athletes can modify movements to reduce the risk of future injury or re-injury
  • Provide effective sports injury treatments
  • Gauge success of treatments and interventions
  • Safely return the athlete to their sport(s) of choice

Our state-of-the-art facility is able to simulate several real-life sports environments, such as a pitcher’s mound, in order to see how specific motions and forces interact with and affect the athlete’s body and joints. Using this information, we can identify athletes at a greater risk of injury and customize treatment and prevention plans designed to keep them healthy and competitive long-term.
