Experiencing an injury from a sport you love can be discouraging, but it’s possible to build your fitness back to where it was pre-injury. At Aligned Orthopedic & Sports Therapy, we are here to walk alongside you through the whole recovery process and help you get back in the game.
Sports therapy is an injury prevention and rehabilitation program to aid you in achieving optimal levels of sports performance. This program is specifically designed for athletes and deals with all injuries — acute, chronic and repetitive — in all levels of sports, including recreational, high school, collegiate and professional.
Sports therapy can involve physiological and pathological processes for an athlete to train and rehabilitate an affected area. In a sports therapy program, you will work one-on-one with a sports therapist who has the knowledge and ability to provide immediate care, long-term enhancement exercises and prevention techniques to promote healing.
Your sports therapist can adjust your treatment program to fit your exact injury and strengthen you for your precise sport. For example, a soccer player who has injured their ankle will have a treatment program designed to strengthen and rehabilitate their ankle based on the correct form for kicking.
