When we think of a team we think of a tight-knit group of individuals working together towards a common goal. These individuals communicate with each other and share strengths to create synergy, or a power greater than the sum of their parts, which lets them do more than they ever could do alone. While they are the basic unit in sports, have you given thought to who your healthcare team is?
Using a healthcare team is better known as taking a “multidisciplinary approach” where a number of proveders with different specialties use their expertise to work together and help others. In order to play at their best and stay happy and healthy, athletes use this same multidisciplinary approach.
