Whether you need to run faster, jump higher, get stronger, or recover from an injury – our sports therapy services can help you get back in the game! When injuries do occur, our therapists can offer expert management of joint, muscle, bone, and other problems. We can help enhance athletic performance and physical fitness, prevent acute and chronic injuries, and extend athletic careers.
Sports therapy services include but are not limited to the following:
- Hydrostatic Strengthening – Controlled strengthening through the entire joint range of motion in order to improve body mechanics in preparation for return to play and decrease risk of re-injury.
- Manual Joint Mobilizations – Manual techniques used to stretch a joint in order to improve range of motion, neuromuscular control of that joint, reduce muscle spasm and decrease pain.
- Therapeutic Exercise – Used to increase strength and/or range of motion of a joint or large muscle groups.
- Passive Range of Motion/Manual Stretching – Used when a patient is unable to move a joint through its full range of motion.
