The physical therapists at our facility have particular expertise in rehabilitating the injured athlete. Many times, people equate sports rehabilitation with unbridled aggressiveness. Our philosophy centers around sound therapeutic principles to eliminate manifestations of the injury as well as determining the cause of the injury to prevent recurrence. The objective in dealing with the injured athlete is to return them to their sport as quickly and safely as possible. There must necessarily exist a finely tuned balance between speed of recovery, tissue healing processes, and return to sport. This balance must be maintained to assure the long-term health of the athlete in addition to achieving the immediate result of return to competition.
Sound knowledge of orthopedics and clinical experience with athletes foster our ability to consistently make therapeutic decisions which ultimately benefit the athlete, physician, parent, and coach.
