Physical Therapy for Sports Injuries
Injuries are an unfortunate side effect of sports, but they don’t have to sideline patients indefinitely. With the application of the latest clinical research, we help optimize the recovery process so athletes can reach their full potential. Whether competing in youth, collegiate, elite, or professional athletics, when an athlete is injured, they need a physical therapist with experience rehabilitating sports-related injuries. Common sports injuries may include shoulder and rotator cuff injuries, ligament sprains, muscle strains, tears in the knee (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL), tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, tennis elbow. Athletes undergo a thorough evaluation of their specific conditions, goals, and performance needs. Personalized treatment plans may focus on controlling pain and inflammation, recovering a proper range of motion, retraining and strengthening muscles, improving balance, or returning speed, endurance, and power to training. We often incorporate Pilates rehabilitation training into our plan of care, with a focus on developing core strength, increasing flexibility, improving posture and alignment, reducing stress, and enhancing sports performance.
Rehabilitation for Dancers and Gymnasts
Our physical therapists work with dance and gymnast populations, specifically, to help those athletes gain an edge at what they love to do. We use our experience and knowledge of science to create a path to success, no matter the patient’s health and fitness goals. We aren’t just physical therapists. We are former professional gymnasts ourselves, and parents of athletes. This unique perspective gives us an edge in the field of prevention and treatment of sports injuries. As a dancer or gymnast, at any level, when injured, these athletes need a physical therapist with experience in sports-related injuries. We understand the higher demands athletes place on their muscles and joints, and how to optimize speed, power, and agility.
