Treatments for Sports-Related Injuries

Undergoing physical therapy for your sports-related injury can help you recover quickly, strengthen your body, and reduce the risk of further injury.

Sometimes Injuries Happen to the Best-Prepared Athletes

Injuries are commonplace among athletes due to the stress their bodies endure. Injuries can happen in any sport, to any athlete, regardless of how well-prepared they are. 

Physical therapy can not only increase your strength but can also greatly improve your recovery time, getting you back to the sport you love.

Our physical therapy approach focuses on strengthening the athlete's body and mind, so when they hit the field again, they're equipped with the understanding and strength to rejoin their sport in a better space than ever before.

What is a Sports Injury?

A sports-related injury is any injury that happens to an athlete during a game, practice, or warm-up. 

Sports injuries can happen to even the best-prepared athletes. Whether it's a sudden impact, a weird twist in a joint, or any kind of pain experienced mid-exercise, sports injuries require careful focus and attention to bring the athlete back to their full strength.

Common Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are common across every sport from soccer to ping-pong and beyond. While common injuries are different from sport to sport, some injuries are seen across all sports.

Common sports injuries include:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Swollen muscles
  • Shin splints

How to Treat or Manage Sports-Related Injuries

The common treatment for immediate relief for a mild sports-related injury is:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

For more serious injuries, we recommend seeing a professional physical therapist - one who can understand the athlete's unique history, their goals in their sport, and build a customized treatment plan to get them back on the field, court, or diamond stronger than ever.
