Return to Sports and Enhancement Program
Injury is the athlete’s greatest opponent. Therefore, like any opponent we have to analyze, game plan, and train to win. As Vince Lombardi said, “Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.”
At Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, we want you to win! As an athlete under our care, you will undergo a full biomechanical assessment to understand not only what happened, but also WHY it happened. Your physical therapist will then use that “WHY” to formulate a variable and specific game plan on how to win.
Under the guidance of sports specific training, corrective exercise and Applied Functional Science, our goal is to be your Movement Specialist. For you to move effectively and efficiently your body must operate as a kinetic chain, and a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. During training, we will turn those weaknesses into strengths to help you become not only a healthier athlete, but a better athlete as well.
We Treat the Athlete, Not the Injury
At Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, we treat the athlete, not the injury. All treatment and training programs will be special and specific to you. Let us be the provider that turns your setbacks to comebacks!
Every athlete, recreational or competitive, fears injury and the potential consequences that may arise following injury. However, this does not mean that return to sport activities is unattainable. Following comprehensive and effective rehabilitation and with MD approval, you can once again return to those sports that you love.
At Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine, the first thing we offer is a biomechanical evaluation. Is your body’s kinetic chain working properly and could it be a faulty kinetic chain that led to the injury in the first place? There are only a few Movement Specialists in the entire world and Sports and Ortho Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine has some of them.
What we offer, no one else can; and understanding of how your body works, where your weakest link is, and how to correct it. If you want not only want a fast recovery, but also want to actually get better at the sport by correcting your weakest link, we are the clinic for you. We offer a return to sports program with gradual, progressive, and safe programs that effectively re-introduce sport specific movement patterns.These programs focus on correct form, minimize the risk of re-injury, and are supported by scientific evidence. Programs are currently offered for the following activities/sports and any more. For more information, Contact us at Beverly, Bridgeport, Lincoln Park & Northwest Side Chicago, IL centers.
