Texas Sports Medicine Center was the first hospital-based sports medicine program in the greater Houston area. In 1983, The Sports Medicine Center opened as an outpatient facility of Tomball Regional Medical Center. It was developed in response to the need for specialized treatment and rehabilitation of orthopedic injuries.
The Texas Sports Medicine Center is located on an 11-acre complex. The building has an interior space of 45,000 square feet which includes a rehabilitation/physical therapy area; an exercise gym with a wide selection of free weights, weight stations and cardiovascular equipment; a full-court gymnasium; a 1/10-mile track; aquatic center; aerobic dance studio; and a strength and conditioning room for athletes. The outdoor area is fenced, lighted and covers more than five acres. Included outdoors are tennis courts, ½-mile track, a hill for incline workouts, a multipurpose grass field, batting cages and a pitching compound.
The center provides a wide range of services, including: aquatic therapy, physical and occupational therapy, fitness and recreation, strength and conditioning, and athletic training services. Patients, amateur athletes, professional athletes, coaches and private doctors view it not only as the first in sports medicine, but also one of the premier outpatient sports medicine programs in the United States.
