Sports physical therapy can be a vital part of the recovery process following a sports injury.
Injuries during sports can happen acutely with no underlying cause. They can also be related to inadequate warm ups, poor training methods, and lack of conditioning.
Sports injuries can include sprains, strains, tendonitis, fractures, and overuse injuries. They can also include ACL tears, labral tears, Achilles tendon tears, and other serious injuries.
Rehab at a sports injury clinic is extremely important to increase the likelihood of a full return to the sport you love.
Early in the recovery process it can be effective to reduce swelling, maximize mobility, and regain strength. At later stages of rehab, balance, coordination, power, and agility must be regained.
Our Seattle-based physical therapists not only are experts in the field of sports rehab, they also have first-hand experience in many recreational and competitive sports including volleyball, soccer, running, skiing, swimming, rock climbing, biking, triathlons, golf, and tennis. This means that, in addition to having the skills to treat your injury, they also may have in-depth knowledge of your sport. This can be important when it comes to designing training programs and teaching you how to maximize your potential while preventing injury.
We have early morning, afternoon, and evening appointment times for sports physical therapy which make it easy to fit in your rehab around busy sports schedules.
