Organizations, responsible for the medical support for people who worked out and played sports, were established in 1952. The same year the structure of early treatment centers was specified. Those centers had rooms (departments) for medical support (sports medicine), clinical and diagnostic laboratories, departments for physiotherapy exercise and others.
The history of the Center of Sports Medicine began in 1952 from the head organization of the Republican Medical and Physical Training Center of the Ministry of Health of Russian SFSR, which was situated in Moscow (5 Strastnoy Blvd.). From 1952 to 1979 the directors of the Center were: N. Myagkiy, G. G. Nikolaeva, A.T. Rubtsov.
In 1979 the Republican Medical and Physical Training Center moved to a new, larger building in 5 Bolshaya Dorogomilovskaya St., where it has been until now.
Now the Center is a multidisciplinary scientific and clinical organization which provides medical, biological and psychological support for athletes. The Center was also one of the key organizations which provided professional medical support for sports events of high importance such as:
The Center’s innovative projects in physiotherapy exercises, sports medicine and rehabilitation are often implemented in medical care services of the Russian Federation.
