Most physical therapy patients experience trouble functioning on a physical level. Your ability to move and perform even simple tasks can be greatly impaired by injury, disease or disability. The primary focus of physical therapy is to restore, enhance or preserve movement and physical function.
For athletes, physical therapy takes on a whole new definition. Following an injury athletes expect to return competitively to their sport at the same ability level. This adds a new element to the traditional physical therapy model. At the point where physical therapy for the general public would typically conclude with functional exercises, athletes are requiring an additional phase that will get them “Game Ready” for a specific sport – progressive rehabilitation.
