Sports medicine is a medical specialty geared toward the needs of athletes at all levels of play. If you sustain an injury while taking part in a sport or physical activity, sports medicine gives you the care you need to optimize healing and restore function to the injured body part.
The aim of any sports medicine care plan is to restore your ability to engage in your favorite physical activities and exercises. Unlike injury treatment and prevention with a non- sports-oriented approach, sports medicine considers an injury's impact on your athleticism.
At Advantage Physical Therapy, Jonathan welcomes athletes of all ages to come in for individualized physical therapy care as part of their treatment for a sports injury. He develops your care plan with exercises and movements that improve your strength and mobility.
Sports medicine treats a variety of injuries that commonly happen in sports. Different sports involve different types of movement, and certain injuries are more common in some sports than in others. Both amateurs and professionals can experience a sports injury, and the team at Advantage Physical Therapy is equipped to handle both cases.
