Sports therapy in Havelock, NC

Sports Therapy

If you’re an athlete plagued by injury problems, we know how frustrating it can be. When an activity that once brought you joy and excitement now brings you pain, you may start to wonder if you will ever be able to get back to playing your favorite sport — or if it’s finally time to hang it up for good.

Athletes in this situation should do two things: be patient and stay positive. Patience can help you work to find the right combination of treatments for you, and more importantly, avoid reinjuring yourself by jumping back into action too fast. A positive attitude is important because there are effective treatment options out there and believing that you can find relief will help you commit to them.

For patients in Havelock, North Carolina, seeking a return to an active lifestyle through sports therapy, Peak Performance Sports and Physical Therapy can help. We have a beautiful clinic located in Havelock that specializes in a broad range of sports therapy treatments. We’re providing the following information to help you learn more. You’re also welcome to contact us at any time with questions about our treatment options and locations.  

Sports therapy overview

Whether the injury is a hamstring strain, Achilles tendonitis, an ACL tear or a frozen shoulder; and whether your sport is golf, tennis or football, the goal of sports therapy is the same. A physical therapist will perform an evaluation, review previous health and treatment records and develop a plan to improve strength and mobility for the injured area while the body heals itself.

Sports therapy also involves educating patients on behaviors that can help prevent reinjury or the development of new or compensatory injuries. These include:

  • Practicing good form and posture
  • Staying hydrated
  • Proper stretches and warmups
  • Looking out for signs of fatigue or overexertion
  • Good nutrition
  • Proper equipment and shoes

At Peak Performance, you can expect a highly individualized treatment plan based on your specific injury and sport.
