Sports Specific Rehabilitation
Here at Sampsell PT and Functional Wellness, we will take a very individualized and sport-specific approach to your injury and problem. Every athlete is different, with different body types, strengths, and weaknesses. Each person also has their individual goals, whether it is to return to training for a 26.2-mile run, throwing a football 50 yards down the field, or making a run down the sideline of a soccer field to assist with an amazing cross, ending with a header in the goal.
Every sport is different. Every individual is different. And everyone needs to be specifically evaluated for their specific muscle imbalances or mobility issue to return to their particular activity and sport.
Sports and Athletic Screens
Are you an athlete looking to gain a college scholarship? Or maybe you are a weekend warrior who is worried that you may be injured playing or training for your next game or event.
- Our movement screens evaluate you from head to toe to determine mobility and muscle imbalances throughout your body that may predispose you to injury.
- Our exam takes you through a detailed evaluation of your spine and extremities. It gives you specific treatments to correct these potentially debilitating injuries like:
- ACL tear for a football or soccer and basketball player
- elbow and shoulder pain in an overhead athlete like baseball
- knee pain in a runner
A sport-specific evaluation locks in on your weaknesses and mobility issues and gives you the corrections to take your training and game to the next level, minimizing your risk of injury!
