Are You a Casual or a Competitive Athlete?
We believe athletes need specialized care that is different from routine physical therapy. Whether you are a recreational runner or varsity football star, we understand that you want to get back to your sport as quickly as possible.
Our Physical Therapists work closely with Certified Athletic Trainers to keep you in the game whenever possible. Your rehabilitation protocol will be catered to your specific injury and level of fitness, and will include supervised exercise and hands-on manual therapy. We will be sure to keep you physically challenged as you recover.
The sports medicine team at Outpatient Physical Therapy realizes the importance of participating in casual or competitive sports. We understand that injured athletes want to get back to their sport as quickly as possible. Our advanced, certified physical therapists, athletic trainers and massage therapists have expertise in sports injuries and offer a comprehensive rehab program to address pain relief, strength, coordination, endurance, flexibility, reaction time, balance, performance, and reducing and preventing future injury. If you have an athletic injury or are you interested in improving your game, request a free injury screen to get some expert advice!
When you are ready to start a fitness program or return to the gym, our Certified Personal Trainers can help! Your Personal Trainer will work closely with you to understand your goals, fears and interests. If you are starting out, you will learn the components of a comprehensive fitness program, proper exercise technique, and how to “dose” your exercise (proper amount of weight, reps, sets, time, etc.) If you are returning to a gym routine after injury or surgery, you will learn lifting modifications and new exercises to keep you safe and free from re-injury. Your Personal Trainer also has the expertise to help you improve your clinical health numbers, such as blood sugar or cholesterol levels, through guided exercise, nutrition and accountability. Cardio, resistance, flexibility, coordination, agility, sport-specific training, home exercise instruction…you can do it all in a nonthreatening, small gym atmosphere with an OPT Personal Trainer.
