Sports Medicine and Orthopedics

Sports medicine includes the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries and the design of exercise and nutrition programs for maintaining peak physical performance.  This area of practice includes athletic injury management, including acute care, treatment and rehabilitation, prevention, and education.

Orthopedic physical therapists diagnose, manage, and treat disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after orthopedic surgery. Orthopedic therapists are trained in the treatment of post-operative orthopedic procedures, fractures, acute sports injuries, arthritis, sprains, strains, back and neck pain, and spinal conditions.

Our physical therapists will work with the patient suffering from a sports or orthopedic injury and design a program specific to the patient which may include: joint and spine mobilization and manipulation, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular re-education, hot/cold packs, and electrical muscle stimulation to expedite recovery and return them to the sport or activity they enjoy!
