The FWC sports medicine team consists of orthopedic team physicians, family practioners, concussion specialists, licensed athletic trainers, school nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, sports nutritionists, and athletic training students. Over the years this team of healthcare professionals has become an intrigal part in the overall success of our athletic programs.
