Life is movement—each day your body is working against gravity and life’s challenges. Whether you are a profession athlete, a competitive youth athlete, an adult who likes to participate in weekend sports, or a recreational athlete, we are all “athletes of life”. Not only do we evaluate and treat most sports injuries effectively, we also do preventative screening and sports performance enhancement.
Sports injuries can deprive or limit you from your favorite activities and competitions, not to mention your day to day life activities. Given the high-speed nature of most sports injuries, the trauma to muscles, tissues, and joints can be severe, including ligament sprains, muscle strains, and fractures. Do not wait until you are crippled with pain. The right physical therapy can effectively treat your sports injury to get you safely back to pain-free activities. We will develop a plan to get you out of the “Red Zone,” which is what we refer to when the body is in an inflamed state. Your body cannot get stronger, more mobile, flexible, or coordinated when it is in the state of healing. When we are safely out of the Red Zone we will work to increase, strength, then agility and endurance.
Rehabilitation After Surgery or Bracing
In severe cases where surgery, bracing or casting is required, we can help you fully rehabilitate to your optimum level of performance. The objective is to work closely with your doctor to improve your joint range of motion, strength and create stability again around the joint. This is done safely and according to your physician’s protocol. We have helped thousands of avid sports lovers return to playing, running, cycling, throwing and more, quickly and pain-free.
At Perfect Balance Physical Therapy, our physical therapists will evaluate your injury, tailoring the treatment plan to your specific sport, style of play, and position. Our attention to detail when it comes to athletes of all ages has powerful results.
