What is sports rehabilitation?

When you are recovering from a sports or exercise-related injury, a sports rehabilitation program can help restore your strength, stability, and range of motion. You may also hear it referred to as physical therapy, sports injury rehabilitation or sports rehab. When you work with our trainers and physical therapists, you'll learn how to optimize your performance and avoid future injuries. 

Is sports rehabilitation only for athletes?

Sports therapy and rehabilitation programs aren't just for elite athletes. They're also ideal for  anyone who wants to regain strength and flexibility after an injury. You'll follow a rehabilitation program tailored to your goals, body mechanics and physical limitations.
