At Bacharach, our sports medicine team has a unique expertise in treating all types of athletic injuries. Regardless of the level or intensity of an athlete’s sport, our physical therapists use the most innovative techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to get athletes back to tip-top shape.
When an athlete gets injured, many times their mentality is to push themselves and get back into the game as quickly as possible. However, returning to play too soon can exacerbate the injury and may cause additional irritation and inflammation, resulting in a longer recovery time.
Orthopedic certified specialist Jack Martin, PT (pictured) says, “Prevention is easier than rehabilitation. No injury is insignificant; there is a proper way to return from injury and a way that will put you in jeopardy of re-injury. If you have had an injury that has kept you from your sport, make sure you rehabilitate properly under professional supervision, and return only when you are cleared to play. Otherwise, you may re-injure yourself and be out an even longer time.”
At Bacharach, our goal is to get patients back to their full range of activity, when they are safely healed and ready to go. Along with concussion management, our sports medicine team uses a vast amount of therapies for shoulder, neck, back, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle injuries. They are trained to treat sprains and strains and increase core stabilization to minimalize the injury and get athletes off the sideline and into the game.
