About Our Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine Treatment Process at ReShape

Our licensed physical therapists take a one-on-one approach to sports medicine care without relying on aids or technicians. All of our providers are Doctors of Physical Therapy with advanced training and unique treatment philosophies.

With our athletic program, every new patient begins with an initial evaluation that includes a thorough medical history and exam. The physical therapist will then examine the patient using a hands-on approach to identify the underlying cause of pain. Finally, we focus on clinical reasoning and providing a detailed diagnosis before treating.

Our sports medicine department provides services for both youth and adult sports. We collaborate with your team’s doctors, trainers, coaches, and sports psychologists to provide a complete care package that enhances performance while preventing injury.

Phase-Based Treatment Plans

Phase-based treatment plans are an innovative sports medicine approach that allows us to continue or halt an athlete’s rehabilitation process depending on their progress. Through evidence-based criteria using subjective and objective methodology, we can determine when and how an athlete moves forward in their treatment plan.

This unique and cutting-edge sports medicine approach allows for an individualized rehabilitation plan that significantly reduces the risk of re-injury while also accelerating the rehabilitation process.

When Should You Seek a Sports Medicine Evaluation?

Whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, injuries are often a part of the game. You should see a physical therapist for an injury when:

  • You cannot put any weight on the affected area
  • The area around the damaged joint is tender to the touch
  • The injured area has changed shape or size compared to the other side
  • You cannot move the injured joint
  • Walking without pain is difficult
  • You feel unstable or as if the joint is giving away
  • Mobility or function is significantly reduced

Sports Medicine Conditions

Our specialized physical therapists treat a variety of sports medicine conditions related to the knee, shoulder, hip, spine, head, wrist and more. The most commonly treated conditions are:

  • Overuse injuries
  • ACL or meniscus tears
  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Strains
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Tennis elbow
  • Hip bursitis
  • Sprained ankle
  • Herniated disc
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash

Most of these conditions may be treatable with physical therapy alone. However, more severe injuries may require surgical interventions. If a provider recommends surgery, then pre and post surgical rehabilitation can help improve surgical outcomes, improve mobility and enhance the treatment process. 

Sports-Related Concussion Treatment

Concussions are the most common form of traumatic brain injuries and are often the result of high-impact sports injuries, such as those sustained during football tackles. Symptoms can range from a mild headache, difficulty concentrating and amnesia, to complete loss of consciousness.

Our physical therapists are trained to address concussion symptoms with a slow, return-to-sport progression. Concussions must be addressed before resuming activity to reduce the risk for Second Impact Syndrome, rapid, severe swelling after a second concussion.
