Data fetched from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services indicates that approximately 8.6 million sports injuries take place each year.
Some common injuries athletes face include:
- Muscle Injuries
- Ankle Sprain
- Hamstring Strain
- Tennis Elbow
- Knee Injury
- Broken Bones
Just to name a few.
These injuries are usually triggered by:
- Poor Training Practices
- Lack of Muscle Control or Co-ordination
- Wrong Posture
- Poor Flexibility
- Practicing in Poor Health Condition
- Lack of Warm-Up
- Stretching Mistakes
- Wearing Improper Sporting Gear
And that doesn’t singlehandedly apply to professional athletes. It doesn’t matter if you play sports for fun, fitness or competition, you can always get injured.
About one-third of the overall injuries occur in an athletic field, sports facility, or a playground.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, these high rates can be reduced by a massive 25% upon athletes taking appropriate preventative action.
At WrightPT, we don’t want you to be sidelined with an injury.
And that’s the reason we’re presenting in front of you our premier Sports Therapy services. This therapy will not only help you conquer your injury but also shield yourself against future ones.
And if you are wondering what sports therapy is all about, say no more. Let’s dive into the concept together.
What’s Sports Therapy?
Sports therapy is a therapy form aimed at preventing and treating sports injuries via rehabilitation, hands-on treatment, and patient education. This therapy suits athletes wanting to get back in the game after an injury. Also, it’s focused on preparing them both physically and mentally to boost overall performance and, at the same time, reducing the chances of any potential injuries.
This therapy form heavily involves:
- Restoring and maximizing body movement
- Identifying faulty or uncontrolled movement patterns
- Improving posture and flexibility
- Relieving Pain
- Improving a patient’s quality of life
- And much more!
Dedicated sports therapists work with amateur and professional athletes to help them relieve their pain and recover from their injuries. Also, they help athletes stay at the top of their game by conducting regular fitness tests, scheduling warm-up, and cool-down sessions, and working closely with them to gain insights into their fitness level.
We’ve put together a long list of benefits of sports therapy:
- Immediate Pain Relief
- Helps Prevent Athletic Injury
- Contributes Towards Recovery from Existing Ones
- Helps Improve Posture
