Spero Rehab also offer sports rehabilitation, which is a multi-disciplinary approach to treating injuries sustained through sports participation. This orthopedic therapy is designed to assist the athlete in regaining normal pain-free mobility. At Spero Rehab, your therapy team will consist of highly trained professionals who may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, dieticians and massage therapists. The goal of sports rehab is to return you to your pre-injury activities, whether you are a professional, amateur or casual player.
Sprains and strains are the most typical injuries we address in a sports rehab program. A sprain is an injury to the ligaments caused by overstretching or tearing.
A strain, on the other hand, is an injury or tear to the muscle itself. Other conditions that can be treated through a sports rehab program are fractures, arthritis, joint replacements and generalized pain issues. We also rehab patients who have undergone orthopedic surgery as a result of a sports-related injury.
At your first visit you will undergo a full functional evaluation with your therapist and together you will set forth your goals for treatment. We work with you to immediately address any pain that you are experiencing. Your therapist will formulate an individualized treatment plan for you which will include exercises in combination with some of the modalities listed below.
Spero Rehab advocates sports rehabilitation programs that involve a stretching and exercise routine. Stretching assists the muscles shortened by injury or pain to regain their normal length to optimize pain-free motion. Exercise routines encompass things like strength, endurance, flexibility and balance to improve performance. The final progression of the exercise routine is the utilization of sport-specific functional exercises to help return the athlete to his former performance level.
Spero Rehab also offers Concussion pre and post testing, as well as concussion management for all ages.
