What Is Sports Medicine?
Sports Medicine focuses on helping patients improve performance and to prevent injury. Our Sports Medicine physical therapists will focus on helping the patient rehabilitate and recover from a sports related injury. Our physical therapists work with patients to assess weaknesses, improve strength and mobility as well as restore function after a surgical procedure or injury. They will also help reduce pain and limit the effects of disabilities caused by the sports related injury. Our goal is to help you get moving again so that you can continue doing what you love.
Physical therapy can play a vital role in helping a patient identify and address muscle weakness or imbalance that may have played a role in sustaining an injury. Our physical therapists will work with you to assess your needs, recommend appropriate therapy and educate you on how best to maintain your progress for the prevention of future injury. In doing this, we can actually help optimize your performance once you get back to your athletic hobby or job. We have many facilities in Maryland that are properly equipped to conduct comprehensive evaluations and execute treatment plans.
Sports physical therapy can treat a range of issues including balance, muscle weakness, and joint problems, all of which can contribute to injury and poor performance. For the athletic patient, treatment can not only reduce pain and other symptoms but also improve overall performance.
