Sports Medicine Therapy & Treatment
Sports medicine is a field of medicine that includes promoting physical well-being, preventing sports-related injuries, and using up-to-date treatment strategies for injuries sustained during physical activity. Contrary to popular opinion, sports medicine is not just for professional athletes. No matter what your level of physical ability is everyone who likes being active can benefit from sports medicine.

Sports Injury Prevention
A big portion of preventing injury is education. Oftentimes, new athletes will hurt themselves because they haven’t been taught the proper techniques for their sport. When we see you for a sports-related injury or for physical therapy, we always make sure to teach you about ways to avoid future injury once you get back on the field. We want the education you receive with us to last a lifetime.
No matter what sport you play, our sports medicine specialist will always create a treatment program for you that focus on keeping you healthy. That might include a variety of treatments, dietary suggestions, and injury prevention techniques.
Sports Medicine vs. Traditional Rehabilitation
There are all kinds of rehabilitation programs available to you. However, when you have a sports-related injury or had to have a portion of your musculoskeletal system repaired due to wear and tear, there is no one better to help you recover than a sports medicine rehabilitation specialist. Sports medicine rehabilitation also includes:
- Physical therapy as needed
- Injury diagnosis and analysis
- Customized treatment programs for your body
- Post-operative orthopedic rehabilitation
- Activity-specific training and reconditioning
In a situation when you have a sports-related injury and you resort to generic rehabilitation, you might not receive care specific to your injury or sport. In contrast, a sports medicine specialist will include a customized program that gets you ready for your professional or recreational sport and ensures that you are functioning at your highest level again.
Come Back Better than Ever!
By following the advice and the program set up by your rehabilitation specialist, you can continue to keep up your strength while you recover from an injury. We’ll do everything we can to shorten recovery time and keep your body healthy in the meantime.
