An athlete’s love of the game often has them pushing their physical limits. Injuries can be a prevalent occurrence in the world of sports. Having an injury puts a pause on activities can be rather challenging.
Injuries don’t necessarily mean the end of your season, especially if they’re identified early and treated effectively. The good news is that physical therapy can help guide a player to successful rehabilitation and a winning return to the field or court.
What to Expect from a Physical Therapy Program After an Injury
After the injury, returning to play and your prior sports ability requires a rehabilitation program focused on:
- Joint mechanics
A physical therapist will:
- Create a custom treatment plan
- Track your progress
- Adapt your plan as your needs change
After participating in a rehabilitation program, athletes are able to come back stronger and more prepared than before their injuries. Most treatment programs will last anywhere from four to twelve weeks depending on the severity of the injury.
