Contrary to what its name suggests, athletic therapy isn’t just for athletes; it’s for anyone with an injury to a bone, muscle, joint or a concussion. Athletic therapists provide immediate care and help with rehabilitation, injury prevention, and conditioning for these types of injuries.
Too much, too soon?
Returning to activity too soon after an injury can leave you feeling under-trained or still in pain. Know the feeling? Our athletic therapists (and the rest of our staff) are here to help you heal your injury and return to activity, sport or work feeling confident and ready. We want you back to doing what you love and functioning at your top strength, speed, agility and endurance—like nothing ever happened.
Coming back from an injury never gets easier, you just get stronger.
Athletic therapy focuses on getting you ready for work after an injury and getting you back doing the physical activities or sports you love. They help you rehab injuries focusing on improving your quality of movement, building strength, and improving your cardiovascular fitness during rehab.
Specializing in the return to sport phase of injury rehabilitation, they bridge the gap from injury rehab to performance. Sport-specific rehab is typically the last phase of your rehab that helps improve your readiness for sport and activity, speed, power, agility, and confidence and has you ready to perform at your optimal level.
We’ll create a customized rehabilitation program for you, which will take you through your healing process and will address your strength, mobility and stability. We also consider your cardiovascular fitness, core stability and neuromuscular control in your program. As your injury heals, we’ll help you progress through the stages of rehab and will add speed, agility and power drills to your routine to get you functioning at your highest level and make sure you’re ready to return to sport or activity.
Functional Movement Screen – our Athletic Therapist will help improve the quality of your movement. Ensuring you move well is a key foundation to rehab and strength and conditioning.
Strength & Conditioning – our Athletic Therapist is also a Certified Personal Trainer, so while you rehab your injury your strength and conditioning won’t stop. Modifications to your training programs can be implemented throughout your entire rehab, or if you don’t have a program but want to hit the gym and unsure where to start we can devise a program for you taking into consideration your injury and rehab.
Return to Play – when it comes to returning to your sport or activity, our Athletic Therapist specializes in making sure you are physically ready for practices and competition through functional return to sport rehab and testing.
