About Sport Specific Rehabilitation
How does the rehabilitation component of our programs work?
Each of our sport-specific programs provides rehabilitation care for athletes who suffer an injury. Unlike traditional rehabilitation, we offer sports-specific rehabilitation by experts who are familiar with (and often play) your sport and can identify the needs that are critical to your recovery.
- Comprehensive injury assessment to investigate the cause of injury (such as trauma, poor mechanics, overuse), review past medical history and discuss personal training goals
- Development of an evidence based therapy program that includes exercises to restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit physical disabilities
- Coordination of your in-depth therapy sessions with any of your other training activities to avoid overtraining and reduce the risk of re-injury
- Monitoring and adjusting of your personalized plan, as needed, to meet your performance goals
Who is sports rehabilitation for?
Our staff treats the full range of orthopaedic problems, including:
- Exercise-related or sports injuries
- Back and neck pain

How long will sports rehabilitation take?
The length of rehabilitation varies based on each individuals needs and progress. There can be various phases of rehabilitation that vary. Factors that influence the length of time in rehabilitation include:
