Not all injuries can be prevented, but all athletes can reduce injury risk by working with a sports rehab specialist. It’s within every athlete’s control to work past injury rehabilitation toward injury prevention and ultimately achieve optimized performance.
No one wants to be in pain. So, when any kind of ache, tweak, mysterious twinge or more serious strain, chronic discomfort or injury occurs, your first instinct is to see a doctor. But heading to your primary care doctor or trying to get in to see an orthopedic specialist might not be the most efficient solution. Going to a physical therapist directly for musculoskeletal pain will save you both time and money – and the sooner you start treatment, the sooner you’ll feel better.
