Sports Rehabilitation

Understanding Sports Rehabilitation

Sports Rehabilitation is a form of physical therapy that is specifically designed to help athletes recover from injuries and improve their performance. At Atala, it involves a combination of  manual therapy, targeted exercises, and other techniques to help athletes regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the affected area. The goal of sports rehabilitation is to help athletes return to their sport as quickly and safely as possible, while also reducing the risk of re-injury. Additionally, sports rehabilitation can also help prevent injuries by identifying and addressing muscle imbalances, poor posture and other issues that can lead to injury. It is important to note that sports rehabilitation is not just for professional athletes, but it can also be very beneficial for recreational athletes, fitness enthusiasts and anyone who wants to improve their physical performance.

When working with athletes of all ages and levels, we effectively apply our knowledge of evidence-based physical therapy, total body and manual techniques  to rehab your sports injury; and in the rehab process, we also strive to prevent the occurrence of future injuries. We do not practice cookie cutter PT. We also incorporate sport-specific movements into your therapeutic exercise to best prepare the neuromuscular system for return to sport. Our advantage in sports rehab lies in our experience. At Atala, we have treated athletes from all sports, at all levels, as well as weekend warriors, and age group athletes. We want to help you reach your highest peak of performance!

We Understand Your Needs

Sports rehabilitation is often used for injury recovery and prevention, to improve performance, and to help individuals return to their sport or activity. Some other reasons people may do sports rehabilitation include:

  • Improving flexibility and range of motion
  • Building strength and endurance
  • Improving balance and coordination
  • Addressing muscle imbalances
  • Correcting poor posture or movement patterns
  • Enhancing overall fitness and health
  • Reducing risk of future injuries

It’s important for individuals to work with a qualified physical therapist- that’s all we have at Atala!  We design you a personalized program to address your specific needs and goals. Additionally, we creatively encourage consistent adherence to your rehabilitation program, appropriate follow-up appointments, and honest communication with your therapist for your most  successful recovery.

How Atala Does Pre and Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

Our team of experienced therapists will work closely with your surgeon to ensure that you get the best possible outcomes and a full return to function. We know that every surgery and every patient is unique, which is why at Atala we create personalized treatment plans that are tailored to your specific needs.

Before your surgery, we’ll work with you to pre-habilitate the injury and ensure that you have maximum range of motion and strength going into the operation. This will help enhance your outcomes after the surgery and get you back to your normal routine as soon as possible.

After the surgery, we’ll work with you to help  decrease your swelling, regain your strength, flexibility, and range of motion. We’ll use a combination of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, and modality treatments such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation to assist in your healing process.

Atala understands that the healing process can be tough, which is why we provide a positive and motivating environment where you can feel comfortable and confident during your recovery journey. We’ll be with you every step of the way, expertly guiding you and helping you achieve your goals.

As the result of an automobile accident I ended up with a wrenched left shoulder, back and neck. Terri was among the approved therapists under my health care system. Her warm, enthusiastic, positive approach and professional treatment over six sessionss provided the relief I sorely needed. She and her welcoming staff have my highest recommendation.

A caring and thoughtful clinic, where the owner and team have excellent diagnosis skills and treatments. This is a quiet clinic, with private treatment rooms and they are maniacal about cleaning, even before COVID.... I highly recommend all the therapists and exercise specialists at Atala...

I have needed physical therapy several times over the past few years. Atala Physical Therapy is by far the best. They have excellent customer service and they are the very best at working with me to go over what I need to do to get back into a pain-free life. I highly recommend Terri, Illsong, and everyone there.

I have had such a great experience at Atala Physical Therapy! After suffering with right hip pain when I was sleeping on my ride side for a year I finally decided to seek help and was SO fortunate to find Terri! She was so good at looking at the big picture and me as a whole and what could be contributing to my problem. She made recommendations I was able to implement right away that made a positive difference. She is always timely, never rushed, also personable, professional and truly caring! Jason was wonderful with assisting me with exercises and the entire office has a very good vibe! If you are having chronic pain or orthopedic problems I would definitely go and see Terri! I can't thank their team enough!
