Our sports rehab program prepares athletes to return to sports after an injury, reducing risk of re-injury and improving performance.
What is Sports Rehabilitation?
For athletes facing injury, the ultimate goal is to return them to their individualized sport. With traditional physical therapy, there is often a large gap between rehabilitation after an injury or surgery and returning to sports. We bridge this gap from rehabilitation to return to sport to reduce re-injury and complications after surgery, as well as to improve sports performance. We take a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment and will be in contact with all involved while getting you back to sport.
Specific physical therapy techniques vary dependent on the particular injury and level of activity the athlete is working towards. Some of the benefits include:
- Functional baseline testing
- Decreased soft tissue inflammation
- Relief of spasms
- Improved tissue healing
- Increased balance and coordination
- Personalize exercise prescription to improve mobility
- Regaining lost strength
- Targeted sport-specific exercise to return to pre-injury function
- Preparation to avoid recurrent injuries
