Clinical Trials

Mayo Clinic offers dozens of clinical trials for sports medicine that are open to participants for enrollment.

Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These human studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and conditions in athletes.

Mayo Clinic's clinical trials related to sports medicine include studies to reduce the incidence of concussions in youth sports, improve methods of recovery and return to sports after injury, joint mobility, performance nutrition for athletes in adaptive sports, and many more.

Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national clinical trials with other medical institutions.
