The UC Davis Sports Performance and Wellness program is housed within UC Davis Sports Medicine, in an approximately 10,000-square-foot facility in midtown Sacramento, California. The clinic has been in operation since 2001 and incorporates a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach in helping individuals and groups achieve their optimal health and athletic performance.
At UC Davis Sports Medicine, our staff includes nationally renowned orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, exercise physiologists, biomechanists and sports dieticians, experienced in injury treatment and prevention, sports performance improvement and training program development. We offer a variety of services to athletes of all abilities, provide training to a wide array of students, from undergraduates to medical residents, and participate in cutting edge, applied research in the field of Sports Medicine.

Our clientele ranges from sedentary individuals interested in starting an exercise program to elite professional athletes, from injured athletes to first responders.
