Injuries are common while participating in organized sports, competitions, training exercises, or fitness activities. Poor training methods, lack of conditioning and inadequate warm-up, and are a few of the causes of sports injuries. Sports injuries have sidelined many athletes for games, seasons, and worse, careers.
Physical therapy helps people rebuild strength and improve movement in parts of their body after an injury. Therapy can also help with managing pain and to prevent permanent damage and recurring problems. We teach exercises, stretches, and techniques using specialized equipment to address problems as part of your individualized plan of care.
