Sports Injuries

Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a serious athlete, sports injuries are a fact of life. A twisted ankle or a sore knee can usually be treated at home. But for those aches and pains that just aren’t going away, physical therapy is often a critical part of the healing process.

Common Sports Injuries

Whether it’s an immediate, dramatic break or muscle strains that accumulate over time, sports can do some serious damage. The conditions we frequently treat include: (might want to include some bullet points with these)

  • Repetitive stress conditions. Tendonitis often stems from swinging activities such as swinging a racquet or throwing a ball. Joints and muscles can become inflamed in vulnerable areas, including shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, and ankles.
  • Torn tendons and ligaments. Those dramatic jumps, twists and stretches can result in equally dramatic “snapped” tissues, especially in the ankles, knees, groin, and shoulders. Surgery followed by physical therapy is often the prescription.
  • Lower back strains. Sometimes that lower back pain just won’t go away with basic home care. In such cases, we’ll work with you to rebuild strength and flexibility.
  • Fractures. A broken bone during a game or workout results in a trip to the emergency room and a cast to promote healing. But as your bone is recovering, the muscles around it are weakening. Physical therapy helps to strengthen the affected area following a fracture.

Rehab Therapy

Some sports injuries require surgery or other medical intervention. In these cases, postoperative physical therapy is key for transitioning back to normalcy. When your recovery time requires a cast or some form of bracing, our team of physical therapists will help you rebound from the diminished strength and range of movement that happens while the affected area is out of commission.

Prevention

Athletes know that the best way to avoid injury or reinjury is to build strength and flexibility. Our physical therapists will guide you through specific moves that will help you avoid future injuries based on your sport and your specific body type. We’ll also talk you through strategies you can implement when you’re back on the field.
