What is Sports Medicine?
Sports medicine or sports therapy is the treatment of injured athletes with common musculoskeletal complaints. A Physical Therapist works with injured athletes, and guides them through the rehabilitation process, in order to get the athlete back to full performance post-injury. A sports medicine Physical Therapist is trained in further return-to-sport techniques and will help you get back to the sport you love as quickly and safely as possible.
