Athletic therapists are elite performers in sports medicine rehabilitation. They are committed to rehabilitating your acute and chronic injuries. Their treatments will help you recover fully to prevent an injury from reoccurring. With their skills and your drive, you will return to your active lifestyle.
Our team is comprised of a talented group of therapists. They have experience helping recreational, junior, Olympic and professional athletes. We have helped athletes regain top form in sports such as hockey, tennis, figure skating, dance, soccer and rugby.
Our therapists regularly attend courses to learn the latest techniques. This keeps them on the leading edge of their field. It also ensures you get the highest quality of care. Your treatment will be comprehensive and may include the following components.
Manual therapy is an effective hands-on technique. Joint and soft tissue mobilization is necessary to restore joint mechanics and promote a healing environment.
Our facility has various machines that will compliment your treatment. Modalities help to control pain and inflammation and promote healing.
Acupuncture is used to encourage healing, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body.
We prescribe specific exercise programs to restore your strength, balance and function. Early exercise results in a faster and more complete recovery. Your therapist and the rest of the Midtown team will work with our extensive resources to get you back into your game.
Our therapists provide custom knee braces made to measure to your exact leg size. These braces are rigid, double-hinged and light-weight and are covered by most health insurance plans. Measurements are made without making a cast mold of your leg. The turnaround time for ordering this device is two weeks. The athletic therapist responsible for these custom braces will discuss and ensure the brace fits properly and will educate each individual on its use and wear. These custom knee braces will help ACL deficient knees, MCL/LCL laxity or injury, pre and post-operative knee injuries, meniscus damage, osteoarthritis and osteochondritis dessecans.
