Sports Therapy in Toronto
Athletic physical therapy requires a different skill set when working on the field, no only in having to make quick decisions about sprains and strains when an athlete is injurie mid-game but also to be able to keep them playing their sport at their best even with injuries. We have 30 years of this experience having worked on the sidelines with Canada Basketball and the Toronto Raptors.
The athletic physical therapists at Healthfx Physiotherapy are very effective in treating musculoskeletal injuries for any citizen of Toronto because of their background in quick-thinking on-field emergency care—a skill that strengthens the practitioner’s ability to assess quickly and prescribe proper rehabilitation.
Experience in quick-thinking working on the field with athletes is a skill that strengthens the practitioner’s ability to assess quickly in the clinical setting utilizing these principles:
- Prevention of re-injury
- Assessment and diagnosis
- Reconditioning and return to full function
Of course there will always be the possibility of accidents, but if you are educated on strategies and are prepared physically for your sport or activity, you put yourself in the best position for avoidance. Education is the strongest tool you can possess to keep yourself safe.
Trained to assess accurately, physical therapists are efficient at diagnosing injuries.
They can quickly determine signs and symptoms of an injury as well as perform the first steps of required treatment and they can determine if you need to see a doctor.
Often first when an injury occurs, physical therapists can provide treatment and make recommendations for follow up care.
For some individuals, a return to activity will depend on your goals to return to your previous level of function. We will never rush you, but provide active focused care with your goal in mind so that you can get back to what you were doing before suffering injury.
Just how far you complete the reconditioning process will depend on your goals to return to your previous level of function and fitness. A preventative program and custom exercise plan, created by your therapist, will help you take the last step to continuing your active life as safely as possible.
