Been sidelined with a sports injury?

Sports injuries can happen at anytime, especially when you’re an athlete who trains hard and plays hard. You take time off, you focus on rest and recovery, and you’re ready to get back to what you love.

But did you know that many sports injuries, including 1 in 3 hamstring injuries, will reoccur not long after athletes return to their activity? This is often due to resuming training and play at too high an intensity too soon after the initial injury.

Some of the most common sports injuries are from:

  • General exercise/exercise equipment
  • Cycling
  • Soccer
  • Swimming
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Racquet sports

Sports injuries are painful and frustrating, especially when the injury keeps you away from your normal social groups and your regular form of exercise. But fortunately with the right treatment and care, athletes can safely return to their sport, sometimes even stronger than before. That’s because when athletes work with a physical therapist, the physical therapist can help strengthen the underlying imbalances that might have contributed to the initial injury.

Our Doctors of Physical Therapy have helped hundreds of athletes in a wide range of sports get back in the game and get back to competition and training. Are you ready to see if they can help you get back to all the things you love?

How can physical therapy help your sports injury?

An evaluation with a physical therapist is the first step. Once your physical therapist has evaluated your injury and assessed your overall movement patterns to identify imbalances, they can design a personalized treatment plan to meet your goals.

Physical therapy helps you to find the problem and work towards addressing it.

Physical Therapists assist you in moving better, whether it’s a verbal cue, tactile cue, demonstration, props, or a combination of the above. The MoveMend Physical Therapists will help you to move more optimally.

A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) is a highly educated and licensed healthcare professional who specializes in movement analysis, pain management, and restoring mobility to the musculoskeletal system. A physical therapist’s job is to help you determine where your faulty movement patterns lie, and how to correct them.

Post-operatively, physical therapists also progress patients out of immobility and back to their prior level of function.  They manage and resolve impairments with conservative but effective treatments such as joint mobilization, soft tissue release, movement re-education, and therapeutic exercise.

Physical therapists don’t mask your pain; they treat it. At MoveMend, we will help you move past your sports injury and get back to the things you love the most.
