WellStrong and the San Francisco 49ers joined forces in September 2017 to provide professional-athlete level treatment and prevention for sports-related injuries at affordable prices.

Through its 49ers-branded physical therapy and sports rehabilitation centers, patients can benefit from the state-of-the-art facilities and the team’s experience as WellStrong’s licensed physicians, physical therapists, certified athletic trainers, and medical assistants receive cross-training and best practice education.

The success of this collaboration has shown that there is considerable demand for professional-grade physical therapy across the state from aspiring athletes to weekend warriors of all ages and skill levels.

We Believe That
Movement Is Medicine.

Delivering Professional Athlete-Level Care

Sports Medicine & Orthopedics

WellStrong provides a sports medicine program for professional, college, high school, club-level, and weekend warrior athletes to enhance their athletic and orthopedic care through streamlined communication with coaches, athletic trainers, and the patients themselves.
Athletes’ medical needs and concerns often go beyond injury treatments. WellStrong offers a comprehensive sports medicine program to meet these needs providing our patients with continuity of care. Our sports treatment services include:
  • Musculoskeletal and orthopedic injury treatment and rehabilitation
  • Advanced concussion management and neuropsychiatric testing
  • Pre-participation physical exams
  • Exercise fitness testing and exercise prescriptions
  • Diagnosis and management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal issues
  • Exercise prescriptions for patients who are pregnant or have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or cardiac disease
  • Addressing medical concerns related to sports participation, including eating disorders, exercise-induced asthma, and skin conditions

Reconditioning/ Return to Play

  • Strength Training – WellStrong’s Olympic-caliber weightlifting room provides superior facilities and hands-on training, including technique, team, and group training.
  • Reconditioning – Provides sports readiness after injury or surgery and bridges the gap between physical therapy and return to sport.
  • Education – Classes such as ACL injury prevention and concussion management give athletes, coaches, parents, and teams the knowledge to help prevent these injuries (and identify them when they occur).

Joint Replacement

  • Joint replacement surgery utilizes a prosthetic joint, a device that is usually made of a combination of metal, ceramic, and/or plastic.
  • Artificial joints are designed to replicate the movement of a native joint. The prosthesis can be attached to the bone with acrylic cement or can be press-fitted to allow the bone to grow into the implant.
  • A prosthetic joint may last 15 to 20 years, depending on use and activity level. 

Concussion Management Program

Our Concussion Management Program guides each patient through his or her concussion recovery by focusing on cognitive and physical rest from exertions that trigger symptoms and interfere with normal life.

We show patients how they should adjust their daily activities in school, work, or family life to reduce the effects of symptoms and to promote the most thorough recovery.

Key elements of the WellStrong Concussion Management Program include:

  • An analysis of the concussion’s nature and severity
  • Assessing the degree of various symptoms
  • A plan for adjusting cognitive and physical activities in the recovery period
  • Evaluating the potential psychological effects of the concussion
  • On-going evaluation toward recovery and a safe return to normal activities
