Returning to desired leisure activities is an important goal for many Physical Therapy patients. Those who participate in sports will benefit from the attention of a therapist who is practiced at recognizing faulty movement patterns, limitations in range of motion, and even very subtle muscular weakness or coordination problems. Physical Therapists (PT’s) are recognized as the practitioner of choice in the evaluation of human biomechanics — the complex and multi-faceted science of movement.
It is important for rehabilitation providers to actively assist patients in meeting their sport-specific goals, not only in optimizing performance, but in preventing future injury and preserving the ability to participate in an activity over a lifetime. A knowledgeable and experienced Physical Therapist is a vital part of the team composed of Physicians, Surgeons, Trainers, and Coaches, providing important insight into biomechanics, strength, conditioning, and equipment choices.
Whether one hopes to increase endurance, improve strength, prevent injury, perfect their stride, optimize bike fit, or fine tune their stroke, a therapist who has achieved recognition for their focus on sports is best equipped to ensure success.
Our sport-specific rehabilitation services include: golf analysis, running/gait analysis, and ACL prevention screenings.
