Sports Rehabilitation is the Right Choice

Sports Therapy is a specialized area of physical therapy that deals with both acute, chronic, and repetitive injuries in professional, collegiate, high school and recreational athletes. Practice includes the thorough evaluation, treatment, transition back to sport, prevention, and performance enhancement programs.

Common sports injuries we treat:

  • Torn Ligaments & Tendons
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Muscle Strains
  • Fractures
  • Shin Splints
  • Tennis/Golfer’s elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Arthritis
  • Dislocations

Do not wait until you are crippled with pain. The right physical therapy can effectively treat your sports injury to get you back to your activities pain-free and safely.

Prevention
Sports therapists often provide interventions and recommendations to assist athletes with the prevention. This may include pre-participation evaluations, equipment advice, conditioning programs (e.g. ACL injury prevention) and cardiorespiratory conditioning programs that are constructed to assist athletes in a safe transition back to sport.

Sports Performance Programs
After a thorough evaluation of an athlete’s strength, neuromuscular coordination, flexibility, and cardiorespiratory fitness, the sports therapist will develop a sports performance training plan to help the athlete achieve their performance goals. Programs are tailored to specific sporting demands and provided to the athlete as a training regime (plan of action); or the sports therapist may coach and guide the athlete through a performance program on a several times/week basis again, depending on the athletes goals and needs.

Rehabilitation After Surgery or Bracing

In severe cases where surgery, bracing or casting is required, we can help you fully rehabilitate to your optimum level of performance. The objective is to work closely with your doctor to improve your joint range of motion, strength and create stability again around the joint. This is done safely and according to your physician’s protocol. We have helped thousands of avid sports lovers return to playing, running, cycling, throwing and more, quickly and pain-free.
