Physical Therapy Can Help Athletes
When you think of physical therapy, you probably think of it as a useful tool to aid in recovery from injuries. However, injuries are not all we work on here at Registered Physical Therapists. Seeing a Physical Therapist as a student athlete can have significant benefits. Athletes are at a higher risk for injuries because of the rigorous activity they participate in daily. When they choose to see a Physical Therapist before an injury happens, they significantly decrease their likelihood of an injury.
Injuries such as hamstring tears, groin pulls, shin splints, knee injuries and many more are common in athletes. If you choose to work with a Physical Therapist throughout your training in your sport, we can help you strengthen these injury-prone areas to prevent injury. As you’re taking this preventative approach to your health, you’ll have a medical professional on your team giving you valuable training advice. We can help you work through any pain you may be experiencing and diagnose any small issues before they become large problems.
It’s important to keep your body strong and prepared for anything that comes your way. Our Physical Therapists at RPT can help you reach your goals and prevent injuries before they happen. Whether you’re a track star, football MVP, or prima ballerina, you could benefit from visiting us here at RPT. Give us a call to get started today!
