Physical Therapy and Sports Injuries
A physical therapist can definitely assist in treating and preventing sports injuries. After a thorough evaluation by one of Trinity’s sports medicine specialists, we’ll be able to assess what the problem is and determine exactly how to fix it.
For example, an athlete with lower back pain might have tight hamstrings that are causing the pain, or a baseball player might have a shoulder injury caused by overuse of a certain muscle group. Once the problem is assessed, our physical therapists work with the athlete to educate them on exactly what they can do to restore their body to its normal functionality.
Physical therapy before or after surgery can help in recovery from sports injuries. When more severe cases require surgery, an athlete might need to work with a physical therapist. A regimen of stretches and exercises can drastically shorten the recovery period of an athlete, allowing them a quicker return to play.
