Physical therapy experts, like the ones at Fort Lee Physical Therapy, can transform the individual’s ability to deal with sports challenges. Qualified and certified therapy centers utilize cutting edge sports science and treatments to achieve optimal athletic fitness and potential. They understand the demands of training, and advise on how to prevent injuries, relieve pain, and optimize performance.
Physical Therapists treats all types of injuries like:
Neck & Spine
The sports physical therapist will put the athlete through a series of routines to test and assess their functionality and mobility, looking for areas of pain and weakness.
The aim of sports physical trainers is to heal sports injuries. Simultaneously, they focus on providing tools and exercises to maintain strength, balance, and fitness to prevent a recurrence of these injuries or issues.
Reduce or Eliminate Pain
Therapeutic exercises, manual techniques, and manipulations with equipment such as ultrasound, taping, or electrical stimulation to relieve pain, restore muscle and joint function, and may prevent recurrence.
Avoid Costly Surgeries
Effective physical therapy may eliminate the need for surgery, accelerate recovery, and reduce healthcare costs.
Stretching and strengthening exercises and assistive devices restore mobility.
A customized physical therapy program can help individual sportsmen and athletes, and entire sports teams return to their prior level of functioning via ongoing care from a team of professional physical therapists on or off the sports field. They will learn and be encouraged in activities and lifestyle changes that can help prevent further injury and improve overall health and wellbeing.
