ABOUT BASEBALL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
Baseball Health Professionals is a resource for all baseball and softball players, coaches, parents, and medical professionals. Our goal is to help athletes find a rehab professional they can work with who has extensive knowledge of the unique challenges that baseball and softball athletes present with when they come into the care of a provider. In addition to helping get the focused attention the athlete needs in the unfortunate event of an injury, we also want them to find the proper resources that can help the athlete improve their performance on the field and make their bodies more resilient.
In order to be listed in our database, a provider must first fill out an application with questions developed by our review board. The questions are designed to give our board an idea of the practitioners understanding of baseball and softball players and their approach to working with these athletes. Once the application is submitted it is looked over by the everyone on the board. The board must come to a consensus agreement on whether they feel the applicant demonstrates a higher level of knowledge in regards to the baseball and softball athlete. If they come to that consensus the practitioner is then entered into our database where athletes, coaches, parents, and other medical professionals will be able to look them up.
