The Benefits of Sports Rehabilitation
While most people think of sports rehabilitation as something reserved for college and professional athletes, anyone can benefit from working with a doctor of physical therapy. Casual athletes, professional athletes, and anyone who just enjoys staying active, can see improvements in their recovery. Some of the benefits you can expect to see from working with an expert at Moriarty Physical Therapy include:
A quick recovery is the goal of every athlete that suffers an injury. Sports rehabilitation therapy assists your body in the recovery process and reduces the time an injury would normally require to heal. Also, keeping you body moving and active increases blood flow and allows your body to rebuild damaged tissue at an increased rate.
When parts of your body stay stationary during the healing process, you can lose some of the mobility you once had. This can cause athletes to lose the agility and speed they once had. Sports rehabilitation therapy can help you retain your mobility throughout your recovery.
Reducing or Eliminating Pain
Improved blood flow does more that just speed up your recovery time. It also helps reduce your levels of pain by reducing swelling. When you reduce or eliminate your level of pain you can cut down on medication that is expensive and interferes with your daily life. Sports rehabilitation can help get you back to your old self.
Adding Strength and Durability
During an injury it is inevitable you will lose strength and muscle mass. Sports rehabilitation therapy helps minimize this through specialized programs designed to increase strength in the injured area. When you stay strong, you reduce your chances of another injury when you get back on the field. At Moriarty Physical Therapy, we enjoy helping members of the Cary, North Carolina community stay strong and active.
While some injuries will require surgery, sports rehabilitation therapy can be an effective alternative in certain cases. This is a great option because if will often be less expensive and require less recovery time. However, if your injury does require surgery, we also specialize in presurgical orthopedic physical therapy. Presurgical physical therapy can help prepare you body and reduce postsurgical recovery time.
