What Is Sports Physical Therapy?

For car crash pain, a work injury, or an injury as the result of playing sports, Accelerated Rehab has a viable treatment plan. Our sports physical therapy program excels.

Professional physical therapy helps injured people fully recover quickly. Especially if you’re the sole breadwinner of the household or you enjoy spending your free time participating in sports, you don’t want to end up immobile for an extended period. Thanks to the sports physical therapy that we provide at Accelerated Rehab Therapy, we’ll have you on your feet and back to living life to the fullest in no time.

As the name implies, sports physical therapy entails diagnosing and treating patients who’ve sustained a bodily injury while participating in some type of sport. Also referred to as “athletic physical therapy,” the treatment not only improves quality of life, but it also helps most patients return to their former selves before becoming injured. As part of sports physical therapy, the patient’s therapist evaluates progress throughout rehabilitation. That way, the expert can make any necessary adjustments to ensure an optimal outcome.

Types of Sports Rehab Physical Therapy

Sports care physical therapy includes multiple treatment options. As a prime example, if someone sustains a back injury playing baseball, football, basketball, or another sport, he or she would need to visit a clinic that specializes in both spine and sports physical therapy. That’s exactly what we do at Accelerated Rehab, plus a lot more.

There’s orthosport physical therapy, which focuses on injuries of the spine, knees, shoulders, hands, and feet. This type of sports rehab physical therapy is also ideal for patients who’ve had a joint replaced. With orthosport physical therapy, therapists work one-on-one with post-operative patients to reduce swelling and pain while improving flexibility and mobility.

While sports rehab physical therapy is primarily for people with sports-related injuries, it’s not uncommon for a therapist to use many of the same techniques for patients with workman’s comp or auto injury claims. For instance, if someone suffers from auto accident pain caused while driving a vehicle on the job, he or she would need to file a work comp claim. At Accelerated Rehab, we offer effective and safe treatments to help these people recover. At the same time, we offer assistance in getting the insurance processed for payment.

Is Sports Medicine Physical Therapy Different?

Sports medicine physical therapy involves the assessment, rehabilitation, and follow-up of patients. The treatment plan usually entails the sports physical therapy and rehab specialists to work closely with the patients’ primary care providers. Working as a team, the two experts devise an appropriate plan on a patient-by-patient basis.

The goal of the doctor and therapist who provide sports medicine physical therapy is to develop a program that gives recreational and professional athletes alike the ability to manage pain and recuperate quickly.

For a work comp claim, auto accident pain, or a sports injury, the experts at Accelerated Rehab Therapy remain 100 percent dedicated to the patient’s success. Learn more by visiting our calling us today.

I was having daily headaches after work. After only a few sessions with the great folks at ART I started feeling better almost right away.

By far and hands down one of the best rehab places around! The staff is incredible and the doctors are on point. Their care and concern is over and above. After a horrible car accident I got my life back thanks to the effort from these amazing people. I can't say enough about this place.

This was the best chiropractic experience I've had. Everyone was so warm and friendly. They made me feel comfortable and listened to all of my issues I was having with my back and neck. The massage with Angel was a wonderful deep-tissue and the adjustment with Dr. Ginn was just what I needed.
