Sports Injuries can Kill your Game!

By: Cole Monson

Sports injuries are all too common with athletes and non-athletes alike. Many sports injuries are caused by an “overuse syndrome”, also known as cumulative trauma disorder or repetitive strain injury, which is a sports-related condition characterized by chronic irritation to a body part.

According to an article by Pivot, physical therapy is a crucial part of sports injury recovery. There are several distinguishing qualities of sports physical therapy that are a bit more specific than general orthopedic rehabilitation such as: Evaluation, Treatment, and Prevention.

Here at Bridle Trails, our physical therapists are trained to help patients recover following an injury. As part of physical therapy, they can teach exercises, stretches, and techniques using specific equipment to address your sports injury problems. Make your appointment today to get started with your physical therapist!
