Athletic injuries are essentially orthopedic injuries which have a sport specific component. Because the function of athletes requires more strength and speed for more elite motor control, it can be more difficult to identify problems early and requires higher training levels to fully restore sport activities. Screening and diagnosis can be less obvious than with non-athletes because complaints only appear with high level function. So our examination methods of your injury must be as reliable and valid as possible. With athletes, and all of our patients, we employ examination and treatment methods that are based on the best evidence available in our professional literature. The higher level training of S.O.A.R. physical therapists provides us with these additional skills. Our programs are uncommonly effective at returning athletes to their sport quickly and preventing re-injuries.
