At ROI, return-to-sport rehabilitation and injury risk reduction programs are available for individuals and teams. Our one-on-one sports therapy services help bridge the gap between physical therapy techniques for traditional rehabilitation and human performance.
Doctors of Physical Therapy are specialized in sports and orthopedic injuries, skilled in evaluating the movement system, diagnosing movement dysfunction, and prescribing evidence-informed treatment to address the underlying cause.
Our integrated approach joins the expertise of our Physical Therapists along with the insight of our team of Exercise Physiologists, Strength and Conditioning Coaches, and Registered Dietitians to ensure that the whole athlete is accounted for.
What Is the Movement System?
According to the American Physical Therapy Association, “the ‘movement system’ represents the collection of systems (cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine, integumentary, nervous, and musculoskeletal) that interact to move the body of its component parts.”
At ROI, the movement system is the basis from which we treat and train our athletes. The goal of our sports therapy is to help each athlete move better in both athletics and everyday life. The movement system’s collection of physiological organ systems interact to move the body and is the key to top physical performance. We customize each athlete’s rehabilitation and exercise programs through the lens of the movement system as a means to prevent injury and enhance performance.
Why Prioritize Sports Therapy?
Sports therapy is a special style of physical therapy that helps athletes deal with acute or chronic injuries. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a fitness enthusiast, sports therapy can help get you back to what you love quickly, safely, and in a way that best supports both your movement system and your individual physical fitness goals.
Through sports therapy, athletes are evaluated thoroughly before an individualized training and treatment program is created to help safely and efficiently transition them back to sport. In addition, sports therapy can help prevent future injuries, minimize aggravation of recovering injuries, and boost performance both after an injury and throughout the recovery process.
Methods of sports therapy include:
- Manual, hands-on techniques such as massage
- Therapeutic exercise such as functional retraining, dynamic strength training, and endurance training
- Therapeutic techniques such as ice, heat, taping, and electrical stimulation
Although many of the techniques used during sports therapy are similar to those used in the fields of physical therapy and physiotherapy, sports therapy techniques are specifically geared toward benefitting athletes. This sports medicine expertise is required by most professional sports teams and uniquely provides both short- and long-term support for the specialized needs of professional athletes.
