FREEHOLD, N.J., April 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Now, athletes do not have to suffer through a sports injury to benefit from the performance enhancing benefits of physical therapy. Expanding their menu of comprehensive services, Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute (AOSMI) recently announced the launch of a program designed to raise athletes of all abilities to their next level of performance. The physical therapy training program is designed for athletes who are fully healthy or who have recently completed rehabilitation for an orthopedic injury.
"Athletes typically don't come to us for physical therapy unless they're experiencing some type of pain or have been injured," explained AOSMI physical therapy director Peter Sanzio. "What sports players may not realize is that, even with optimal health, programs like this one can address subtle deficiencies in movement patterns that are preventing them from functioning at their maximum capacity. This program is designed to correct those deficiencies and help athletes play and feel their absolute best."
The training program can benefit individuals who have recently completed rehabilitation from an injury, too. Sports injuries can result from trauma to a part of the body, pulling of the joints and muscles, repeated motions resulting in stress on the joints, and more. Injuries can be sustained during practice, cross training, or gameplay. Physical therapy is often a long-term component of the treatment and rehabilitation process. Typically, a physical therapist works with patients to develop a series of exercises designed to build strength and improve functioning in compromised areas of the body. Some of the treatment modalities utilized by AOSMI include Kinesio Taping™, Graston Technique, Active Release Technique, electrical stimulation, and more.
In the Advanced Physical Therapy training program, the exercise regimens created for each patient are designed to not just overcome deficiencies, but also to bring the body to optimal functioning. Patients in the program undergo extensive screening and assessment to gain a clear understanding of their personal movement patterns. From there, our trainer creates a set of corrective exercise tailored to the patient's individual needs and goals.
In addition to improving performance, the benefits of Advanced Physical Therapy can help to prevent the likelihood of athletes sustaining an injury in the future, as well as to increase their chances of a full and speedy recovery if they are injured. Proper posture, for example, is key to preventing repetitive stress injuries in a number of sports. Advanced Physical Therapy is designed to address even the most subtle deficiency in an athlete's posture or form. Through practicing these exercises, the right muscles are strengthened, and the body's muscle memory makes maintaining the appropriate posture effortless.
