Injuries are common while participating in organized sports, competitions, training exercises, or fitness activities. Many athletes have been sidelined due to injury for games, seasons, and worse, careers.
Sports injuries can be caused by a variety of factors – poor fundamental movement patterns, training techniques, inadequate warm-ups, fatigue, overuse, dehydration or improperly fitting equipment. Athletes of all ages and skill levels who have experienced pain or suffered an injury while participating in a sport can find personalized and comprehensive clinical care with Mercy Sports Medicine. We not only treat your pain, but work to find the underlying cause, prevent re-injury, and make you a better athlete.
Coping with Sports Injuries Often Requires Physical Rehabilitation
Sports Injury Rehabilitation treats a range of conditions including acute sports injuries, strains, sprains, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs, tendonitis, hand injuries, shoulder dislocation, foot or ankle dysfunction and surgery rehab. A rehabilitation program, which includes a full body movement assessment, is essential to ensuring complete recovery to pre-injury levels of activity and preventing re-injuries.
Each athlete is different and will respond to different exercises and treatment regimes at different rates, and your Mercy Sports Medicine Specialist may use a variety of techniques and procedures including:
Functional Movement Screen and Selective Functional Movement Assessment
Movement based interventions and corrective exercise
Sports/Activity specific exercises and training
Bracing and taping
Fabrication of protective pads
Whether you are an elite athlete or just love weekend activities, Mercy’s Sports Rehabilitation Specialists will help you restore movement patterns, strength, flexibility, endurance and power after an injury so you can get back in the game.
