Whether you are casual weekend warriors or competitive school athletes, everyone wants to know how quickly they can have their pain abolished and get back to the competition as quickly and safely as possible.
Our methods will vary depending on the athlete and the injury. We develop a customized plan of care for each athlete, utilizing sport-specific exercises and functional training, and our therapists’ goals are always threefold:
- Help our athletes return to their sport as quickly and safely as possible
- Educate our athletes so they understand what caused/contributed to their injury
- Develop a plan for future injury prevention
Suburban Physical Therapy offers more than twelve decades of combined physical and sports therapy experience to help you get back in the game. Our programs include:
Sports rehabilitation and injury prevention
Sport-specific exercises and functional training are all part of the athlete’s plan of care. Our therapists’ goal is to facilitate early return to sports. We work closely with your doctor and athletic trainer, when needed, to determine goals and provide consistent care. Athletes return to the game with greater knowledge of their injury and a plan for future injury prevention.
We evaluate and treat postsurgical and nonsurgical orthopedic injuries using modalities, exercise, and active manual physical therapy – hands-on techniques to restore movement and function to the bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles.
Active manual physical therapy
Manual therapy is an overall term for any hands-on treatment provided by a physical therapist. Our therapists are trained in many different hands-on therapies – massage therapy, strain-counterstrain, muscle energy technique, joint mobilization, shiatsu, joint manipulation, and myofascial release. We complement these hands-on therapies with various modalities and therapeutic exercise.
Dynamic “core” stabilization
Used for both postsurgical and nonsurgical patients, dynamic stabilization exercises target the muscles of your trunk – the core that keeps your spine and body stable. They help you stay balanced when you move. If your core muscles are strong and they contract when they should, your posture is better, your body is balanced, your movement is more efficient and powerful, and you are less likely to sustain injuries.
We will teach you how to cope with the sports injury of today, and how to prevent sports injuries tomorrow. Through gentle care and education, our top-notch therapists will guide you through the pain and disability of your sports injury, restore your health, and optimize your potential to play and function better. If you are ready to relieve your pain, we are ready to help.
