Sports Therapy Q & A

ADI Rehab

What is sports therapy?

Sports therapy is a specialized segment of health care that focuses on injury prevention and rehabilitation of existing injuries and conditions. The goal of sports therapy is to help you get back to your highest levels of function, fitness, and mobility. Sports therapists work with patients of all ages, regardless of fitness level or physical ability.

How is a sports therapist different from a physical therapist?

A sports therapist is a specially trained physical therapist and health care professional who has the expertise to:

  • Provide immediate care for injuries in recreational sports, training, and competitive environments
  • Assess and treat a sports-related injury or condition
  • Plan and implement a comprehensive rehabilitation treatment plan
  • Use sports and exercise principles to help you optimize your performance, train, and prevent injuries
  • Manage existing physical, sports-related conditions

Specialized sports therapists meet competency requirements and educational expertise standards so they have the specific knowledge and skills to practice sports therapy. They use a variety of therapeutic modalities based on their specialization and understanding of sports and exercise.

Can a sports therapist help relieve pain from sports injuries?

Sports therapists are ideal for treating some of the most common sports injuries, including:

  • Groin pulls
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Hamstring strains
  • Knee injuries
  • Tennis elbow

Sprains and strains of ligaments and tendons are common sports injuries, especially for weekend warriors or people who don’t stretch properly before engaging in a strenuous activity. Muscle and ligament strains and sprains are often very painful and take time to heal. You may also lose some mobility in the affected area until it heals completely.

Your sports therapist develops an individualized treatment plan so you can recover well and get back in the game. They also educate you on ways to prevent your injury from recurring. You work together with your therapist to accomplish your short-term recovery goals and long-term lifestyle goals.
