Sports Medicine

At AMFIT Physical Therapy, we are experts in the treatment of sports injuries and injury prevention. Our approach encompasses treatments to relieve pain, promote healing and prevent future injury coupled together with patient education, fitness, wellness and ergonomic (body mechanics) training. Our therapists develop individualized plans that are age, sport, injury and lifestyle specific. This insures that each patient receives quality care that is targeted to shorten recovery time and optimize results.

There are numerous reasons why our patients seek physical therapy. We treat people from all walks of life, from weekend warriors to highly competitive athletes of all ages. Our expert team develops programs customized to address any of these common conditions:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Running Injuries
  • Post-surgical management
  • Shoulder / Rotator cuff injuries
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Tendonitis and bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Repetitive stress injuries

No two patients or injuries are the same. Because we recognize that each person is unique and has their own pattern of movement, body alignment and postural habits, our therapy programs are individualized, intensive and hands-on.

Treatment begins with the therapist taking a thorough history to determine the root cause of the problem. Each patient is then given a meaningful assessment and receives a comprehensive and personalized treatment program. Therapy programs are continually reassessed to monitor changes and improvements in a patient’s condition.  Each patient is provided with exercises they can do at home to supplement treatment in our office.

Treatment methods include:

  • Advanced manual therapy techniques
  • Joint mobilization
  • Trigger point therapy and Myofascial Release
  • Postural training
  • Strengthening, flexibility and mobility training
  • Balance training
  • Modalities
  • Therapeutic exercise
  • Home exercise programs

Working with Your Doctor or Surgeon

Our team also works with other medical professionals to help patients recover from injury. If a patient is referred by a surgeon or physician, our therapists carefully work with the doctor’s recovery plan and keep them regularly updated on the patient’s progress. We are committed to developing customized programs that work for each patient’s lifestyle in order to restore them to optimal health.
