Sideline Sports Doc was founded in 2010 by Dr. Dev Mishra, Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Stanford University. Our primary focus is on providing a fast and easy to remember method for non-medically trained coaches, parents, and athletes to confidently recognize and manage sport injuries. The content was created and thoroughly reviewed by head team physicians in the NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, US Olympic teams, and multiple US national teams.
Led by Dr. Mishra, all of our training programs are developed to help you answer the question:
“Your player’s been injured, now what?”
Sideline Sports Doc Essentials is a video based online education platform that will give you the key information to recognize and provide basic management for almost any injury you’ll encounter on a field, court, ice rink or pool.
You asked and we listened. Many of you in our community thought we should offer the key parts of our online course videos at no charge. Our mission is to impact as many people as possible with our method to make sports health and safety better for everyone. The Essentials series will allow us to do that.
What Do You Do – Right Now – When There’s Been A Sports Injury?
Whether you’re a parent, a coach, or an athlete, this is a question every single one of you will face. Sometimes the injured player will need to sit out with a bag of ice, sometimes they can reasonably and safely continue playing, and sometimes the injury is serious enough to require immediate medical attention in the local emergency department.
The SAFE Method™. A fast and easy to learn on-field evaluation method that works for all sports and all age groups.
How do you know what to do?
We’re here to help. We’re team physicians for youth teams, NCAA colleges, every major professional sports league in the U.S., as well as national teams. We’re also parents of athletes and fitness enthusiasts ourselves.
We created the fast and easy solutions in Sideline Sports Doc to help all non-medically trained people with the basic “go” or “no-go” decisions so common in sports at every level. Our decision support tool- The Safe Method™- is based on the exact same steps used by every team doctor or athletic trainer in the U.S. when evaluating an injured athlete. It’s time tested and it works.
We’ll give you immediate access to the key concept videos that will allow you to evaluate the vast majority of injuries you’ll encounter. We’ll also provide downloadable audio transcripts.
