From professional players to students on school teams, physical therapy can improve athletic performance. Professional athletes in every division, including our beloved Seattle Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders, enjoy the benefits of regular physical therapy treatments. They even seek out physical therapy prior to injury! Performance enhancing physical therapy is important preventative health care, especially for athletes. Reduce the risk of serious injury with a physical therapy consultation and evaluation.
Do you have an old injury or are you struggling to reach the next level? Performance physical therapy can address chronic issues and gaps in your current workout. Any chronic pain should be evaluated by a doctor, especially if it interferes with work, hobbies, or sleep. Common concerns that affect performance include the following:
- Knee injuries
- Rolled or sprained ankle
- Shoulder injuries
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Shin splints
- Compartment syndrome
- Dislocated joints
Your primary doctor and physical therapist can create a physical therapy program just for you. Personal treatment plans lead to reduction in pain and an increase in your strength and agility.
