Physical Therapy

Sports rehabilitation can include a physical therapy program to help professional athletes in returning to their sport after injury. It addresses injuries that occur among children involved in any sport such as volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, baseball, soccer, etc. It is designed to treat injuries such as muscle strains, tendonitis, bursitis, sprains, walking/gait abnormalities, improper movement patterns, and decreased flexibility. A sports medicine approach to physical therapy targets the muscle groups and movements specific to each sport.

Program Overview

Why is this Important?

Beginning therapy early allows your child to benefit from manual soft tissue and joint mobilization to decrease the initial pain and inflammation of an injury. Treating sports injuries purely with medication and rest does not target the skills and strength required to return to a sport or to decrease the risk of re-injury. All Children’s physical therapists blend their skills in sports medicine and unique knowledge of pediatric growth and development to provide comprehensive care for your athletic child.
