Sports PT


sports trainer and patientWhat is “Sports Physical Therapy?” It has become an overused, and misused, cliché in the field of therapy. A true Sports Physical Therapist understands not only the sport, not just the injury, but the true physiological and biomechanical demands of the athletic endeavor on the human body. Every athlete responds to the same sporting activity differently and therefore every athletes training and therapy demands should differ to specifically meet their needs.

Our “Sports Physical Therapy” program utilizes every avenue available to produce a more efficient and therefore less prone to injury, athlete. We will study the athlete, if capable, while performing their activity to analyze their mechanics. We then formulate a plan to get the athlete back on the field as quickly, but more importantly, as SAFELY, as possible.
