Let the athlete inside of you come out


Whether you’re a professional, college or recreational athlete, Dr. David Carfagno constantly reminds all Scottsdale Sports Medicine Institute patients of that mantra. At one point in your life, you were an athlete. It could have been on the playground in grade school, or on a field or court in middle school and high school. Some of you even had the opportunity to play in college or take it to the professional level.

No matter what level you got to, Dr. Carfagno and his team want to instill and maintain that athlete mindset for the rest of your life. Why? It’s because it sets the stage and tone for the way you’re going to approach your health and fitness. There are three different levels of athletes that are treated at the institute. This includes the professional athlete, the weekend warrior and the challenger.

Let the SSMI team be your optimal partner in achieving health and fitness performance.
