Avoid Injury

Avoid Injury

Playing tennis, golf, a pickup game of basketball or even just cleaning up around the house may be a simple, routine task but these activities can result in injury due to abnormal movement, strain on muscles or stress on joints.

Physical therapists are especially trained to develop treatment programs to improve strength, flexibility and coordination, as well as to counteract the effects of incorrect movement patterns that put abnormal stress on joints.

Exercise programs developed by physical therapists can reduce athletes’ risk of injury by 41% (American Journal of Sports Medicine, August 2008).

A physical therapist can help you improve your quality of life by moving freely again without pain and discomfort and help you feel renewed and ready to move on.

88% of physical therapy users say the care they received was beneficial in helping them return to normal activity, increase their range of motion, and relieve their pain. (APTA Consumer Survey, October 2007)

Exercise has long been known to be beneficial to help maintain weight and reduce stress but recent research has shown exercise can reduce the risk of disease and boost the immune system.
