Understanding Sports Injuries
Whether you’re a professional athlete or you enjoy sports just for fun, injuries are frequently unexpected setbacks. They prevent you from the continued momentum toward your goals and prevent you from participating in the activities you love.
Sports injuries can also happen suddenly. One wrong turn or movement can result in immediate pain or swelling. Common sports injuries include:
- Knee Injuries.
- Achilles Tendon Rupture.
- Bone Fractures.
- Rotator Cuff Injuries.
- Shin Splints.
- Tennis Elbow or Golfer’s Elbow.
- Patellofemoral Syndrome.
At Healers of Motion Physical Therapy in Pembroke Pines, Florida, we are ready to help you overcome your sports injury. With the right sports injury treatment, you can make a full and speedy recovery, while preventing future injuries and pain.
How Sports Injury Treatment Works
Sports injury treatment helps effectively assess, treat, and prevent injuries. It begins with an accurate diagnosis. At your initial appointment, your physical therapist will perform an assessment. Through this assessment, various tests are performed to examine your range of motion, strength, and more.
From these tests and observations, your therapist makes a diagnosis. Using this diagnosis and your assessment results, they create a treatment plan unique to you, your situation, and your needs.
Usually, treatment initially addresses your pain and focuses on promoting proper healing. Once your pain has begun to subside, exercises and other modalities are used to improve strength and overall function. These therapeutic exercises are sport and injury-specific, helping you work toward your goals.
Overall, your sports injury treatment may include functional exercises, sport-specific exercises, bracing, taping, manual therapy, proprioception training, and balance training. All of these factors contribute to you getting back to your sport as quickly and as safely as possible.
