Orthopedic & Spine Institute at Chelsea Piers Connecticut
The Orthopedic & Spine Institute at Chelsea Piers Connecticut provides patients with convenient access to a range of services including consultation with orthopedic and spine surgeons, imaging and integrative medicine specialists. In addition, the 18,500-square-foot space offers motion analysis and a special program dedicated to athletes and performing artists.
Services available at Chelsea Piers Connecticut (CPCT) will include on-site health screenings and use the CPCT facility as a platform for other public education-based health initiatives that help support our ongoing efforts to encourage active, healthy lifestyles.
Services will include:
Orthopedics (sports medicine, hand, spine)
In addition, two innovative programs will be available:
Motion Analysis Program: Experts will provide patients with motion and biomechanical analysis for specific movement. The dual assessment utilizes eight cameras and leading-edge optical technologies as well as a powerful software tool to analyze any type of movement with a dynamic, 3D avatar that can be viewed by any angle and any speed. The reports generated by the analysis can be used by a practitioner, coach or trainer who may recommend training programs that may enhance movement and/or sports performance.
Athletes and the Arts: A collaborative effort of Stamford Hospital’s Orthopedic & Spine Institute and Center for Integrative Medicine and Wellness, this program is designed to optimize performance in competitive sports and the performing arts including gymnastics. Physicians will address issues including nutrition, performance anxiety and pain management using modalities such as acupuncture, trigger point injections, guided imagery and counseling on nutrition and supplements. Promoted by the American College of Sports Medicine and Performing Arts Medicine Association, this national program creates opportunities for athletes and performing artists to access and benefit from established research, training and education, and treatment of injuries that are related to participation in sports and/or exercise.
Lectures by leading physicians in the field
Stamford Hospital will provide clinical experts to lead discussions on a variety of health-related topics ranging from child to adult, from those who are seeking to maintain an active lifestyle, to those who are seeking to optimize health for peak competitive performance. Themes of these discussions will include maximizing health and wellness for the active lifestyle you desire, how to avoid and prevent injury, as well as what to do if you are injured and how to return to your desired level of performance.
