Sports therapy will include all the physical therapy treatments designed to reduce pain and restore maximal function such as joint mobilization, sports massage, modalities, trunk stabilization, strength training, flexibility, endurance training, and sports specific exercise.
Whether you’re a competitive athlete, a “weekend-warrior,” or someone who wants to get back to being active, our sports physical therapy specialists can help you both prevent injuries and facilitate recovery if you have an injury.
Treatment of an athletic injury may not only include treatment directed at the body part involved, but may also require assessment of surrounding joints and muscles to determine their contribution to the movement required. It is our goal to rehabilitate each athlete with exceptional care so that they can return to playing or competing at their individual best. The extensive background of our sports physical therapy specialists allow them to treat athletes from a wide variety of sports, such as but not limited to tennis, running, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, dance, gymnastics, and football. We have also had experience working with professional players from the NFL and the NBA as well as professional tennis players, ice skaters and boxers.
Prevention of an injury is necessary for you to avoid missing time away from your sport. Having a previous injury may put you at an increased risk of re-injury, so take advantage of our specialists and their ability to screen for any movement dysfunction that may be contributing to your injury.
