When you’re an athlete, any injury is devastating – but an injury specific to the motions critical to your sport can seem especially so. It’s very common for athletes to get sports-related injuries, and often the diagnosis is simply to stop performing the motion that caused the injury. Since that’s tantamount to giving up your sport entirely, it’s likely that this solution won’t work for you.
Thankfully, sports-related injuries can be counteracted with rehabilitation specific to your sport, whether you’re into tennis, running, cycling, surfing, kiting, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, or nighttime wolf chasing (though that last one has hazards that sports rehab can’t fix). By improving your flexibility and strength, your body can not only recover from the injury, but improve in performance overall.
Usually a sports-related injury arises because of a traumatic event, muscle weakness or imbalance, fatigue, poor form leading to overuse or bad alignment.
We’ll determine the cause of your injury and create a prevention program to correct poor form, improve your strength, endurance and flexibility, and avoid future injury. We want you to take the time you need to recover and heal, but we’ll keep in mind your needs as an athlete. Our individualized Prevention Program will ensure you can get back to performing as quickly as possible without risking a relapse.
