Athletes have unique health and nutritional needs. The stressors and demands of their sport have a large impact on their health, specifically energy and nutrient requirements. Dr. Romero supports athletes with sports nutrition, supplement management, and Micronutrient testing. Micronutrient Testing is a specialized lab test that provides individualized nutrition information for you. This test checks your vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, antioxidants, and immune function and identified any deficiencies or absorption issues. Micronutrient Testing may be covered by insurance. Additionally, Dr. Romero offers concussion management with a naturopathic medicine perspective. Concussions or Traumatic Brain Injury are all too frequent in sports. They can have long lasting effects and are typically mismanaged early on in healthcare. A natural approach can help with reducing symptoms and improving recovery time. Treatments may include nutrition counseling, antioxidant support, IV therapy, or hormone balancing.
Depending on the sport, different athletes have different needs and require individual health plans, such as proper nutrition and supplementation. Dr. Romero has created unique programs for athletes that provide comprehensive care throughout their sports season, such as Athlete Advantage Program and Athlete Advantage Jr. Program for Teens. Additionally, Dr. Romero offers Optimization Programs for Joint Pain to specifically address sports injuries, including regenerative medicine treatments such as Prolotherapy and Plaletelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy.
