Therapy: Sports Therapy
Our sports physical therapy approach is tailored to match your needs as an athlete. Physical therapy programs required by a golfer will not apply to a football player or a swimmer or a ballet dancer. Thus, we understand that each sport has different physical requirements. While we use all the fundamental skills of physical therapy, we utilize a unique mode of sport-specific integrated training (strength and conditioning) and rehabilitation techniques in order to help our athletes return to optimal health quickly, efficiently, and safely.
GET OFF THE SIDELINES AND BACK IN THE GAME
Any involvement in sports comes with the risk of suffering an injury. Since sports tend to be physically and mentally demanding, athletes endure many types of physical pain, trauma, and stress. For athletes of all ages, the sports injury rehab specialists at Optim Orthopedics Therapy are ready to deliver the care, attention, and advice you need to recover fully.
All of our physical therapists are ready to provide the care and support you need to get back to your sport. No matter what level of intensity, we will diligently work with you to create a custom program that suits your condition, your sport, and your athletic goals.
We take pride in being the musculoskeletal experts. This means we are incredibly familiar with the biomechanics of every joint, muscle, and tendon of the body, and how to improve their performance so you can achieve athletic excellence - no matter what sport-specific strengthening requirements you need.
If you need more information on how to rehabilitate injured athletes, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We work closely with athletic trainers and sports team physicians in order to achieve an effective rehabilitation and preventative process.

SPORTS AND SPINE REHABILITATION
Spinal injuries can be severely painful. Fortunately, the Optim Orthopedics Therapy spine rehabilitation team is ready to help you enjoy and get back to your sport no matter how severe the injury is.
Pro athletes and athletic individuals tend to live with constant pain and discomfort. This can lead them to ignore the severity of spinal or back pain. Also, pro and amateur athletes are used to handling more pain than the average patient. Thus, when we treat athletes at our clinic, we conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment to get to the cause of the issue.
We carefully evaluate the level of function, strength, as well as the full range of motion and the severity of the pain of our patients. We will then create a personalized sports and spine physical therapy and rehabilitation plan to help athletes return to their routine and get back to the game - minimizing any risk for further injury. There are several reasons that our spine should improve, allowing the patient to return to their desired sports requirements or recreational exercise regimen.
TREAT & PREVENT RUNNER'S KNEE
Aside from a great way to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors, running gets our endorphins going and enhances our endurance. However, for those of us who have been hitting the pavement regularly, we’re bound to deal with the dreaded runner’s knee. The best and most effective runners knee treatment is through addressing hip mobility and strength, as well as the motor control and “firing sequences” of the lower leg musculature. And the best place to start your healing is at Optim Orthopedics Therapy.
Also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), runner’s knee is one of the most common injuries among runners. However, it doesn’t make it less debilitating. If you think you have runner’s knee, our expert therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation and perform a series of tests to confirm the diagnosis. We’ll then tailor an individual treatment plan to address the restrictions or deficits that lead to this problem.
With runner’s knee, our primary goal is to reduce the inflammation and strengthen the affected areas through rehab exercises. Our safe and effective methods can get you back to enjoying running in no time. If you’re suffering from runner’s knee, please feel free to call us to set up an appointment.
REHAB AN INJURED ANKLE
It’s neither an ACL te ar nor a concussion that is the most common sports-related injury. It’s an injured ankle - and it can cause lifelong problems if not treated properly. Ankle sprains can be painful. This condition may also need immobilization to prevent any further injury. At our clinic, we are experienced in providing effective physical therapy for sprained ankle to pro and amateur athletes.
Whether it’s a mild sprain or a severely injured ankle, it’s crucial to see a specialist right away for proper evaluation and treatment. Don’t let a sprained ankle keep you out of sports or any physical activity for any period of time. We will help you regain your strength, motion, and balance through our cutting-edge rehabilitation and physical therapy methods.
