Sports & Performance PT

Sports Medicine involves a comprehensive team of health care professionals including physicians, exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, biomechanists, nutritionists, and physical therapists.

Sports Physical Therapy emphasizes the prevention, identification, assessment, minimization, and correction of pain and disability associated with athletic injuries.  The goal of treatment is to maximize participation and performance.

A physical therapist may use a variety of the following interventions to prevent and treat sports related injuries.

Treatments include but aren't limited to:

  • Pre-participation screening
  • Cardiovascular, resistance, endurance and neuromuscular re-education exercise programs
  • Taping and bracing
  • Sports specific ergonomic and training regimens
  • Manual physical therapy
  • Orthopedic physical therapy

In addition to prevention and recovery, the road to maximum performance includes a focus on improving speed, agility, explosiveness, balance and coordination.

Any athlete, amateur to professional, can benefit tremendously from Sports Medicine no matter their sport. Our Sports Medicine clients range from football and basketball players to golfers to performance artists and bow-hunters.
