Rest, Recover, and Rebuild with our Complete Athlete-Focused Rehab
Program: Treating the Whole Body, Not Just the Injury

Whether you are a weekend warrior, a young athlete or a hard-training professional competitor, a sports injury can stop you in your tracks. It can cause pain and limit your mobility. It can also keep you from playing your best…or from playing at all. The sports rehabilitation program at Progressive Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation is customized for each patient to help them achieve their recovery goals and prevent future injury. We combine evidence-based science with our clinical expertise to maximize performance, minimize injury risk, and return to sport in a safe and timely manner with our licensed physical therapists who are residency-trained “experts” in orthopedic manual therapy.

Our approach to sports rehabilitation stands out from traditional physical therapy methods for a few key reasons. Firstly, we recognize that athletes are more than just their injuries, and we strive to treat the whole athlete. While other physical therapy programs may focus solely on the injured area, our approach recognizes that the rest of the body needs to be considered as well. We believe that a comprehensive rehab program should address the physical and mental aspects of an athlete’s overall health, not just the injury.

Another key difference in our approach is our emphasis on maintaining physical fitness during the recovery process. Many traditional physical therapy programs focus solely on injury management and neglect the importance of maintaining cardiovascular health and overall physical fitness. However, we recognize that maintaining physical fitness can actually aid in the rehabilitation process by improving circulation, promoting healing, and reducing the risk of further injury.

We work with our athletes to develop personalized plans that include exercises to maintain cardiovascular health and prevent deconditioning, strengthen and maintain flexibility in unaffected body parts, correct biomechanical imbalances that are sport-specific for each athlete.

Our customized approach of treating the whole athlete and focusing on maintaining overall physical fitness, our program sets athletes up for long-term success and helps to prevent future injuries.

There is nothing more frustrating to us or our patients than rehabilitating an injury successfully, only to have an athlete reinjure themselves due to poor physical conditioning or lack of fitness in other body parts.  Therefore, we are happy to collaborate with coaches and trainers to ensure continuity of care during and after the rehab process.

Where Does it Hurt? We Can Help!

Low Back/Lumbar

If you have low back pain, you are not alone. At any given time, about 25% of people in the United States report having low back pain within the past three months. In most cases, low back pain is mild and disappears on its own.

The neck is less protected than the rest of the spine and can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion often affecting everyday activities. For many, it is a temporary condition disappearing with time.

The thoracic spine encompasses the upper- and middle-back region and extends down about five inches past the bottom of the shoulder blades. Although it is solidly constructed and relatively stable, it can also be a source of pain.

The shoulder is not a very stable type of joint and tends to be easily injured. Pain can arise from problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structure. Injuries can occur while performing manual labor, playing sports, or very often by repetitive movements.

Hip and Groin

The hip is a ball and socket joint designed to withstand repeated motion, but can become damanged due to overuse or injury. A groin strain is an overstretch or tearing injury to the muscles of the inner thigh or front of the hip

Knee pain can restrict movement, affect muscle control in the sore leg, and reduce the strength and endurance of the muscles that support the knee. The most common disease affecting the knee is osteoarthritis.

The feet and ankles work together to provide support and mobility to the body. With proper detection, intervention, and care, most foot and ankle problems can be lessened or prevented. Calf injuries usually occur as a result of a sudden pushing off movement or from excessive over-stretching.
