Dr. Couture Named Team Physician for USA Nordic Sports
We are excited to announce that Dr. Christopher Couture of Wentworth Health Partners Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and the Wentworth-Douglass Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has been named Head Nordic Combined Team Physician for USA Nordic Sports!
In this role, Dr. Couture will ensure the Nordic Combined Team has medical coverage for all World Cup events and will be monitoring the athletes’ health and well-being. When asked about his goals at USA Nordic, Dr. Couture stated, “To be an excellent doctor, create a culture of excellence in care, and coordinate medical coverage so the athletes have best possible care no matter where they are in the world.”
Dr. Couture has covered a handful of trips with the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team’s moguls squad over the years. In 2017, he covered his first ski jumping trip, spending 10 days in Norway during the Raw Air Tournament.
“I had never seen ski jumping up close before. The first day at Holmenkollen, the scale of it, just blew me away,” said Dr. Couture. “I really like the vibe around nordic sports.”
In addition to his new role with USA Nordic, Dr. Couture also serves as the head team physician for the University of New Hampshire.
Dr. Couture treats athletes of all ages in his sports medicine practice at Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.
