Sports Injuries & Getting You Back On The Field:

Sports Injuries are common while participating in sports, competitions, weight training or other fitness endeavors.  Poor training methods and lack of conditioning are some of the causes of sports injury.  Coping with sports injuries often requires a physical therapist to help people build strength and movement in parts of their body after an injury.  Therapy can also help manage pain and prevent damage and recurring issues.

As part of a treatment program, your therapist will examine you to determine if there are weak or inflexible muscles in the body that could make you more prone to injury.  Whatever sport you participate in carries its own risk.  It is useful that a therapist conducts a movement screen that analyzes the biomechanics of each athlete to tailor an individualized program for the patient in order to return to athletic activity without limitation.

  2.   Coordination of care: The healthcare professionals in the clinic will work together to coordinate the patient’s care, ensuring that all aspects of the injury are being addressed.
  3.   Faster recovery: With a multi-disciplinary approach, the patient can receive treatment for their injury sooner, which can lead to a faster recovery.
  4.   Reduced cost: With all the healthcare professionals needed for the treatment are in one place, it can reduce the number of appointments and cost of the treatment.
  5.   Return to sport: The clinic can help the patient return to sport safely and quickly by providing a customized rehabilitation program, and sport-specific exercises.
  6.   Injury prevention: A multidisciplinary healthcare clinic can also help prevent future injuries by identifying and addressing any underlying issues that may have contributed to the injury, such as muscle imbalances or poor posture
