Sports Physical Therapy
Therapists at MTI specialize in evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, prevention, and performance enhancement of the physically-active individual or athlete.
Our therapists are highly skilled in evaluation of both acute and chronic injuries. They are also trained in the assessment of surgical and non-surgical neuromusculoskeletal injuries. They can also perform a functional assessment of the individual post-injury to assist in safe return to activity.
Treatment & Rehabilitation:
We provide a team approach and communicate often with physicians, athletic and personal trainers, coaches and other healthcare providers to design and implement treatment and rehabilitative programs for all ages and physical abilities, including those with physical disabilities as well as elite athletes.
Prevention is the key to a healthy and injury-free lifestyle. We provide pre-participation screening, equipment recommendations, and develop exercise/fitness programs designed to assist in a safe and injury-free performance.
Our therapists can assist athletically-active individuals to improve their performance in a variety of ways. We provide a thorough evaluation of the neuromusculoskeletal and the cardiovascular-pulmonary systems. The results of the evaluation are used to outline strengths and weaknesses of the individual. This can then be matched to the individual’s specific athletic activity. Areas of deficiency in flexibility, muscular strength and endurance, and in the aerobic/anaerobic systems can be emphasized in a specific training regime. Follow-up evaluations can determine progress and needs for future training program changes.
As with many things treatment and rehabilitation concepts are constantly changing. Our PTs keep up to date with the most current research and implement these research findings in the evaluation and treatment plans to assist the athletically active individual in his or her pursuits.
