Sports injuries can happen during any type of activity, whether it’s a competitive squash game or during a recreational bike ride. These injuries can happen to anyone old or young of varying levels of athletic background. Whatever demographic you belong into, it can be frustrating to not be able to participate in the activities you enjoy or to be limited in your function during these activities.
With rehabilitation, the goals of therapy will be targeted with a return to activity in mind. A customized exercise plan will be given to you with the goal of increasing your functional abilities. Progressions will be made as your function improves with the thought of a return to activity in mind.
Whether you sprained your ankle or developed tendinitis from overuse, our athletic therapist will develop a program for you to help you back to sport.
