Sports Injury & Rehabilitation
Whether sports injury rehabilitation is needed as a result of overuse, an accident or surgical recovery, children and adolescents need a program that takes into account both their lifestyle and unique, developing musculoskeletal system.
An approach that gets kids back to all their fun and games
Using a team approach, our therapists evaluate the patient’s musculoskeletal and neurological systems, as well as the environment in which they live and play. Then we develop a treatment plan for each child. Usually, this plan focuses on regaining range of motion, motor control and muscle strength, on either an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Our plans involve every body.
Our treatment plans combine therapy principles with the specific child’s needs, both now and down the road. We work with the child, but we don’t stop there; we also communicate with everyone from the family to the school to the sports and recreation community. By promoting ongoing conversations with the patient’s family, coaches, teachers and physicians, we’re better able to provide the best chance for a full recovery and reduce future injuries.
