What Are Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries result from acute trauma or repetitive stress associated with athletic activities. Sports injuries can affect cartilage, bones, joints or soft tissue (ligaments, muscles, tendons). Sports injuries can also be associated with time missed from training and competition.
Our Competitive Advantage With Sports Injuries
How we Treat Sports Injuries
We work with our athletes one-on-one which allows us to develop a plan specific to their needs. We not only examine the site of injury, but we will also assess your movement as a whole. We want to restore optimal movement and function in order to set you up for success upon returning to the playing field. Treatments often consist of hands-on techniques, functional dry needling, movement analysis, strength training, and education. You will be given work to do outside of your treatment session to ensure we are progressing in the right direction.
As with any medical evaluation, our first step is to achieve an accurate diagnosis. Because the State of Louisiana no longer requires a referral from your doctor, we can begin the evaluation process immediately. If we determine you should be seen by a specialist, The Training Room has relationships with the best orthopedic specialists in our region. In many cases, we can begin developing a physical therapy treatment plan the same day. Our goal is to keep you as active as possible throughout this entire process.
