Whether your sports injury happens suddenly, or is the result of years of playing hard, the team at PinnacleHealth helps you get pain-free and back on the field as soon as possible.
After a sports-related injury, physical therapy
can help you regain strength and range of motion in your joints and muscles, helping you get back to normal activity. Using exercises, stretches, and specialized techniques and equipment, your physical therapist and sports medicine
team helps you get back on the field or court without pain or stress due to the injury. If your sports injury requires surgery, post-operative physical therapy helps you regain your strength and prevents scar tissue from forming and causing pain or limited range of motion.
at PinnacleHealth is provided by licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, as well as licensed occupational therapists. The team works closely with your physician to develop a treatment plan, and ongoing communication and monitoring of your progress between our rehabilitation specialists and your primary care provider assures the most comprehensive treatment and recovery.
If your sports injury is joint related – if you injure your shoulder, elbow hand, wrist, hip, knee ankle or foot – your PinnacleHealth physical therapy team works closely with Orthopedics to develop a treatment plan that gets you back in the game as soon as possible.
