Sports injury treatment

Sports injuries are common when you are participating in competitions, training exercises or fitness activities. Poor training techniques, not enough warm-up and lack of conditioning are just a few of the causes of sports injuries.

Some of the most common sports injuries include sprains, strains, swollen muscles, fractures and dislocations. Sports injuries must be taken seriously and given the best treatment available. At Rehab Access, we offer sports injury treatment so you can get back in the game faster.

Coping and getting better with Rehab Access

Helping our patients deal with sports injuries is part of our treatment plan. The physical therapists at Rehab Access help our patients rebuild strength and movement in their body as part of our injury treatment program. Our therapists can also help patients manage pain and prevent permanent damage and recurring issues. We want to see our patients back doing what they love.

Our therapists need to understand the severity of your injury before a treatment plan can be put together. First, our therapists will examine the patient to determine if there are weak or inflexible muscles in the body due to the injury. Our patients play a wide range of sports, so our staff stays up to date on all of the latest treatment techniques.

Sports injury treatment options at Rehab Access

We offer a number of sports therapy treatment options, including:

  • Cold Compression Therapy – Cold Compression therapy combines the effects of ice along with the swelling reduction benefits of compression.
  • Therapeutic Ultrasound – Ultrasound therapy is used to treat deeper muscle injuries.
  • Therapeutic Exercise – From the use of underwater treadmills to functional exercise, our physical therapists will work with injured athletes to help them regain strength and performance.
  • Whirlpool Therapy – Hydrotherapy delivered with a therapeutic whirlpool is used to relax stiff and painful muscles without stressing the joints.
  • Therapeutic Massage – This type of massage has a targeted treatment area. Kneading the injured tissues can help decrease pain and muscle tension and improve your circulation.

Sports injury treatment through a physical therapy plan is important for recovery. Here at Rehab Access, our physical therapists design each treatment program to meet the needs of the individual patient. Contact us today if you need physical therapy for a sports-related injury.
