When it comes to injury and injury prevention, athletes have speciﬁc needs that may diﬀer from other patients. At Elite Physical Therapy Associates LLC, our physical therapists have worked directly with Olympic and College Athletes. Whether you are simply looking for wisdom and advice in prevention techniques, are experiencing muscle pain and are in need of exercises, or require intensive rehabilitation from a sports injury our professionals can help. We know that for you, getting back in the race or the game is very important and we will work to get you on your way.
Using a wide combination of techniques such as manual therapy, massage therapy, exercise therapy and modalities such as ultrasound and cold laser our therapists will assess your injuries and create a custom plan for you.
Rehabilitation from a sports injury can be a long, arduous process which can also take its toll emotionally. We understand that as an athlete, it is diﬃcult to sit out and not be able to fulﬁll those functions in which you thrive.
At Elite Physical Therapy Associates LLC, you will not only ﬁnd excellence in our skills as therapists but also compassion and patience to help you along the process of recovery.
Proper physical education goes a long way to preventing sport related injuries. From proper warm up and cool down exercises to recognizing strain on certain muscles before they give way to injury, this is critical for serious and even occasional athletes. At Elite Physical Therapy Associates LLC, we feel it is our obligation to teach, learn and share any information and/or tips related to healthy living. For our part, we are constantly seeking new knowledge and techniques to pass along to our patients. The learning process is never done, and we recognize that it is integral to our clinic as well as to the overall health and well-being of everyone who walks through our doors.
Sports injuries are most commonly caused by poor training methods; structural abnormalities; weakness in muscles, tendons, ligaments; and unsafe exercising environments. The most common cause of injury is poor training. For example, muscles need 48 hours to recover after a workout. Increasing exercise intensity too quickly and not stopping when pain develops while exercising also causes injury. If you have experienced an injury please feel free to contact us. We look forward to meeting you.
