Sports Rehab Physical Therapy
Sports physical therapy differs from every day injuries as athletes regularly have high demand on their bodies. For professional athletes, it is especially important that they have as little downtime as possible when injured.
Sports therapists have a strong background in orthopedics (therapy involving the musculoskeletal system) and work with athletes of all levels as well as the average active citizen.
Even if you’re a weekend warrior, you can benefit from physical therapy to avoid injury and recover should an accident occur.
Common Sports Injuries
Sports can be a fun pastime, or a high-demand career. While we love to play sports, they can also be dangerous. The same goes for exercise in general—it’s good for you, but all you have to do is move the wrong way and you’re looking at a twisted ankle or worse. Think about joints and areas of your body that work the hardest to keep you moving—that is where you’ll likely experience a sports injury.
