If you’re an athlete or at the very least someone who frequently engages in physical activity, orthopedic and sports therapy are going to be valuable tools for you.
Orthopedic physical therapy is a type of therapeutic care that involves the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. An orthopedic physical therapist uses whole-body-centered care to treat their patients, meaning they don’t just target the symptoms of an issue. They work to target the root of the issue and any factors that may be contributing to it. The focus of an orthopedic physical therapist is usually on enhancing or treating the ligaments, joints, tendons, muscles, and bones in a person’s body.
A sports therapist is another type of physical therapist who focuses on their patients’ physical well-being. However, sports therapists provide a more concentrated level of sports-related care to patients who are athletes or physically active. A common misconception is that they provide only injury care to athletes, and while sports therapists can do this for their patients, they can do so much more. They can create performance-enhancing action plans for their patients who want to become better athletes. They help patients build muscle strength, endurance and stamina to meet their sports performance potential. They teach injury prevention techniques to help their patients avoid experiencing injury during play and maximize playing time.
