Sports physical therapy is designed to improve performance, prevent injury, and improve healing times following an injury. There are various forms of sports physical therapy that you can benefit from, and each one is designed to address specific areas of the body or prevent certain types of injuries. The key is working with a professional physical therapist from Marron Wellness Center who understands the right therapies, exercises and techniques to ensure you get the most out of your sports physical therapy sessions.
Just about every type of sports subjects your body to stress. Running can impact your whole lower body, all the way to your feet up into your spine. Tennis can lead to elbow pain and other injuries. Football can subject you to injuries just about everywhere on your body.
The first thing your physical therapist at Marron Wellness Center will do is analyze your risk of receiving an injury based on the specific sports you play, which means understanding the hazards, movements, and mechanics behind the sport.
From there, your sports physical therapist can build a program that helps you strengthen key muscles, reduce tension in key areas of the body, and help target any points in the body that appear under stress.
Techniques like deep tissue massage help improve blood flow to key muscle groups, and studies have shown that massage can reduce inflammation and increase mitochondria in your muscle cells, which are seen as the energy factories that keep your body moving. Marron Wellness Center employs both massage and other techniques to help prevent injury and improve your overall athletic performance.
There are a long list of injuries and symptoms you can experience as an athlete, which include:
Dr. David Marron and Dr. Raj Joshi of Marron Wellness Center, have the experience and training necessary to help treat sports injuries through a variety of methods that include manual therapy, exercise strategies, and neuromuscular re-education. However, Marron Wellness Center goes beyond what many sports physical therapists offer by targeting muscles groups and tendons deep in the body through techniques like ultrasound, chiropractic care, and modalities such as electrical stimulation which promote deep tissue healing and pain relief. Dr. Joshi also uses a variety of hot and cold methods to relieve muscle stress and relieve swelling in targeted areas.
For many sports physical therapy patients, deep tissue massage is a technique that can jumpstart healing and also increase flexibility. In fact, a number of studies have been conducted on the use of massage, with one finding that massage increased flexibility in the hamstring of healthy male subjects while another study found that massage increases recovery after exercise.
Marron Wellness Center’s team also helps you use adaptive devices, including wheelchairs, crutches, and other supports while you heal.
No matter what, Marron Wellness Center’s team builds a low-impact exercise-at-home program uniquely tailored to your injury, which is designed to rebuild injured areas without subjecting you to extra stress that might hinder the healing process.
