The Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Program is dedicated to providing comprehensive and multidisciplinary care to enable your recovery after an injury. Our sports physical therapists help people develop, restore and maintain movement and functional ability. Sports physical therapy involves evaluation, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Performance enhancement is another goal of our sports physical therapists.
A therapist may spend time teaching preventative techniques to athletes, families, coaches and even other physical therapists. Sports physical therapists work with doctors to develop programs to help athletes manage pain and recuperate from injuries. They also play a role in assessing when someone is ready to return to physical activity.
