AMP is a collaboration between St. Vincent Healthcare, Ortho Montana and Yellowstone Surgery Center, to provide sports medicine services in the communities of Southeast Montana since 1991. With a staff that includes Sports Physicians, Athletic Trainers and Rehabilitation Specialists, their sports medicine services include Medical, Education, Outreach and Performance.
Located in Billings, Montana, Athletic Medicine & Performance (AMP) began as a collaboration between St. Vincent Healthcare and two orthopedic practices: Montana Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Surgeons & Sports Medicine. Their goal was to help athletes prevent injuries and, if injures did occur, to provide them the absolute best medical care. In order to do so, they offered local area high schools and colleges the opportunity to have athletic trainers work with their athletes at no cost. In addition, athletic trainers - and the physicians themselves - were on the sidelines of athletic events, ready to offer assistance when needed.
Since that time, their work in communities both large and small, has helped to ensure that athletes of all ages and skill levels receive the training they need for peak performance and to stay healthy. Our performance programs have helped athletes excel in their chosen sport. Originally known as Montana Athletic Performance Program (MAEP), AMP expanded their session line-up to offer more opportunities for healthy and injured athletes.
In 2008, the two orthopedic practices merged to form Ortho Montana, while continuing to work with St. Vincent Healthcare to offer its sports performance program. Later that year, in order to expand the outreach and service efforts of its sports medicine and performance, the group added a third partner, Yellowstone Surgery Center, and reintroduced itself as AMP, Athletic Medicine & Performance.
In recent years, AMP have shifted their focus and now only provide limited performance training. Their ACL Post Op sessions focus on athletes who have undergone ACL surgery or patellar realignment, and their On the Road training is for athletes outside of the Billings area. AMP has partnered with two CrossFit gyms that provide sports performance training for Billings junior high, high school and college aged athletes throughout the year.
