Sports Rehabilitation In Tarrytown

Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, sports injuries are a fact of life. While a quick twist of an ankle or an achy back after a workout can sometimes be ignored and seem to resolve on their own, many injuries call for medical attention.  For more severe injuries and for those pains that just aren’t going away, physical therapy is a critical part of the healing process to help you return to your sport.

Acute sports injuries can be managed and treated on-site

There are many options for pain management depending on the severity and particularity of your condition. Athletes can take steps to ensure their safety by becoming familiar with the potential injuries they may sustain in their sport and practicing stretching and strengthening exercises to improve muscle stability. Even with the best protection tips, athletes still have the potential to be injured. Targeted physical therapy can help heal even the most severe injuries. An awkward landing, overtraining, or improper stretching can all lead to sports injuries. Athletes deserve to be supported by physical therapists. Physical therapists help athletes prioritize an exercise program that helps to avoid injury and emphasizes self-care tips.

  • Most common injuries to sports are minor bruising and sprains. However, some injuries can be more serious.
  • Concussions and herniated disks are more severe.
  • Many injuries can be prevented by properly warming up before engaging in strenuous activity.
  • To strengthen their muscles and joints athletes should do some strength training on an almost-daily basis. Warming up should be done before and each practice, game, or workout and stretching should be done on warm muscles. This will increase blood flow, flexibility, and muscle responsiveness.
  • Some injuries can be treated at-home, but you should contact your doctor or physical therapist if your pain is not getting better, gets worse, or lasts longer than anticipated.
  • Your range of motion, flexibility and strength will be tested at your first appointment for physical therapy. This will help determine the severity and possibly also the cause of your injury. Your therapist and you will develop a plan together to improve your strength and range of motion and prevent future injury.

Without the help of a physical therapist, sports injuries can be a daunting concern. You will not only be able to recover faster and more efficiently but also you can avoid further injury by following personalized treatment plans. We are proud to have a team of therapists who are experts in treating athletic injuries. We can help you get back in your ring.

Common Sports Injuries We Treat in Tarrytown

Whether it’s an immediate, dramatic break or damage that accumulates over time, sports can do some serious damage. The workout-related problems we frequently treat include:

Repetitive stress conditions. Arthritis and tendonitis often stem from sports moves like swinging a racket or throwing a ball. Joints and muscles can become inflamed in vulnerable areas, including shoulders, elbows, hips, ankles, and knees.

Torn tendons and ligaments. Those dramatic jumps, twists, and stretches can result in equally dramatic “snapped” tissues, especially in the knees, shoulders, and groin.

Strained back. Sometimes that sore lower back pain just won’t go away with basic home care. In such cases, we’ll work with you to rebuild strength and flexibility and prevent future reinjury.

Fractures and breaks. When you have a bone injury during a game or workout, a trip to the emergency room usually results in a cast to promote healing. But as your bone is recovering, the muscles around it are weakening. Physical therapy helps to strengthen the affected area following a fracture, even while you are in a cast or splint.

Sports Injury Therapy and Prevention in Tarrytown

Some sports injuries require surgery or other medical procedures as the first line of defense. In fact, postoperative physical therapy is key for transitioning back to normalcy. Similarly, when your injury requires a cast or some form of bracing, our team will help you rebound from the diminished strength and range of movement that happens while the limb is out of commission.

Athletes know that the best way to avoid injury or reinjury is to build up strength and flexibility. Working out at the gym is great, but our physical therapists will guide you through specific moves that help you avoid future injuries based on your sport and your specific build and make sure you’re working the right muscles when you train.  We’ll also talk you through strategies you can implement when you’re back on the field.

Jennie Romer

Dr. Pahl is the physical therapist that I have needed for decades. I have had issues with my knees since I was a teenager and I have seen a variety of PTs, but I never quite found the right one. Dr. Pahl incorporates yoga into her practice and individually tailors her treatments. If you need PT, I highly recommend that you book an appointment right away!
