Sports Physical Therapy Q & A

What is sports physical therapy?

Sports physical therapy is physical therapy that’s more focused on helping people recover from sports injuries. Sports physical therapists often treat injuries and illnesses in professional athletes and adults and teens who exercise or play sports.

When an athlete suffers an injury or after an athlete has undergone a surgical procedure, they usually require a period of rehabilitation before they can compete or return to the game or sport again. 

Physical therapy is often utilized as part of the treatment. But, many athletes choose sports physical therapy to help maintain optimal performance, enhance strength and functioning, and avoid injury.

The goal of sports physical therapy is to help you recover as safely and quickly as possible with the best outcome. 

Sports physical therapists like the Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C. therapists specialize in applying the proper therapeutic modalities and exercises to achieve this goal and assist the recovery process and your body’s natural healing system.
