Sports Medicine

Clearway physical therapists offer treatment for the athletic patient for injury recovery, improved mobility, and pre/post operative therapy.

What is Sports Medicine?

Sports Medicine focuses on helping patients improve performance and to prevent injury. Our Sports Medicine physical therapists will focus on helping the patient rehabilitate and recover from a sports-related injury. Our physical therapists work with patients to assess weaknesses, improve strength and mobility as well as restore function after a surgical procedure or injury. They will also help reduce pain and limit the effects of disabilities caused by the sports-related injury. Our goal is to help you get moving again so that you can continue doing what you love.

How is Sports Medicine Physical Therapy Performed?

Our physical therapists will work with you using a variety of techniques to strengthen weakened muscles and to increase your flexibility and mobility. This may be to avoid surgery or to recover from surgery. We use many techniques to help our patients heal. The kind of injury you sustain and the extent of it will determine which techniques we will use with you. We promise to use best practices to help the athlete return at their highest level of performance. We will continually test your progress and provide ongoing communication with parents, physicians, coaches and trainers when necessary and requested.

How Does Physical Therapy Help In Sports Medicine?

Physical Therapy can play a vital role in helping a patient identify and address muscle weakness or imbalance that may have played a role in sustaining an injury. Our physical therapists will work with you to assess your needs, recommend appropriate therapy and educate you on how best to maintain your progress for the prevention of future injury. In doing this, we can actually help optimize your performance once you get back to your athletic hobby or job. We have many facilities in Maryland that are properly equipped to conduct comprehensive evaluations and execute treatment plans.

Sports physical therapy can treat a range of issues including balance, muscle weakness, and joint problems, all of which can contribute to injury and poor performance. For the athletic patient, treatment can not only reduce pain and other symptoms but also improve overall performance.
