Lancaster's Leader in Sports Medicine
Athletes are highly driven and goal-oriented people. We will be there to help you reach your goals and get you back on the playing field quickly and safely!
What is Sports-Specific Rehabilitation?
While an injury is an injury, weekend warriors to high level athletes will tell you that the sidelines are no place to be stuck. Sports-specific rehabilitation is much like traditional physical therapy but with emphasis on exercises that mirror required movements of the sport. We will custom design a rehabilitation program for you based on your sport your fitness level and your goals. Treatment may include hands-on manual therapy, various modalities and the most current sport specific exercise instruction.
If you are on a team, this may require the collaboration of the team physician, the athletic trainer and your physical therapist. If you are an individual competing in recreational athletics then your physical therapist at Outpatient Therapy Services/Sports Clinic, who has a thorough understanding of the etiology and pathology of musculoskeletal injuries as well as the various phases of healing, will collaborate with your orthopedist or other sports medicine physician about your return to activity. Our staff also includes certified strength and conditioning coaches.
What is the goal of Sports-Specific Rehabilitation?
Returning you to what you love to do as quickly and safely as possible is our goal. Whether you are a college baseball player, a senior swimmer, a golfer, a gymnast just starting out, preparing for your first marathon or simply a weekend warrior, we will help you return to your pre-injury status and teach you ways to prevent re-injury. Let’s get busy!
