How can physical therapy help me recover from my gymnastics injuries?
As stated by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, “Gymnastics is a rigorous sport, requiring long hours of practice and complex physical movements. In addition to the weight-bearing stresses placed on the upper body during many gymnastic moves, the countless twists, flips, and landings put gymnasts at risk for injury.”
Because of the higher risk of injury associated with this sport, it is important to have a plan in place in the event that you do sustain a gymnastics injury. As soon as you begin to notice pain or discomfort in a certain area, it is in your best interest to consult with a physical therapist.
At our physical therapy practice, our main concern is helping you relieve your pain, regain strength, and return to your sport as quickly and safely as possible. When you arrive at our clinic, your physical therapist will assess your condition to determine the best course of treatment for your needs.
Your treatment plan will consist of both passive and active therapies aimed at promoting the healing process and getting your body moving in its optimum ways once again. Your physical therapist can also provide you with injury prevention techniques, such as proper warm up/cool down exercises, proper form with different aspects of the sport, and proper safety precautions with the equipment you use.
