How Physical Therapy Helps You Recover from a Sports Injury

Injuries are a common part of all sports, and can be extremely inconvenient for professionals and hobbyists alike. From minor injuries like shin splints or a pulled muscle to major injuries like broken bones and torn ligaments, physical therapy can help athletes to reduce pain, regain mobility, and even help prevent future injuries through better movement.

If you’re sidelined due to a sports injury, playing with chronic pain, or concerned about your readiness to return to sport, physical therapy can help. Think of it as an investment in yourself. Along with addressing your current injury, we’ll give you tips and tools to regain mobility, improve your training technique, improve performance and reduce the risk of future injuries.

We do this by taking a holistic look at your body, discussing your goals, and asking a lot of questions. Once we understand your needs and concerns, one of our experienced physical therapists will develop a custom rehab program which may include flexibility, strength, power, endurance, coordination or other specific movements designed to help you perform your best.   

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort, don’t ignore it. It could be a sign of a more serious condition. Our return-to-sport objective testing can help us identify problems and create a custom training program just for you geared toward getting you back to the things you love most.
