What is Sports Rehab?
Sports Rehab includes the treatment and prevention of sports and exercise-related injuries. Sports rehabilitation helps to promote healing of the musculoskeletal system, restore proper joint mechanics, and promote the return to regular exercise and sport.
Who does Sports Rehab Services?
Children should seek professional care from a BDI Playhouse Pediatric Sport Specialized Physical Therapist. Children are at high risk of developing injuries with sports due to periods of rapid growth that can impact the musculoskeletal system. Risk factors include bones and muscles growing at different rates, increased traction on growth plates causing fractures or apophysitis, development of mineralization defects, physis elongation, and disruption of growth centers. Children are more likely to injure a bone than a tendon due to bones not being completely fused.
