I have had physical therapy at two other locations locally - there is no comparison. Dynamic Physical Therapy's staff are by far the best care givers and achieve the goals we set.

Sports Injuries: Sports Injury: Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation in Northern Michigan

At Dynamic Physical Therapy in Northern Michigan, sports injuries are a common problem for all types of athletes. A sports-related injury is a setback for any athlete, but with treatment and rehabilitation of these sports injuries by the physical therapists at Dynamic Physical Therapy, athletes can get back into action as soon as possible. Many sports injuries are caused by an "overuse syndrome", also known as cumulative trauma disorder (CTD) or repetitive strain injury (RSI), which is a sports-related condition characterized by chronic irritation to a body part.

There are several sports injuries that can be treated with proper physical therapy and rehabilitation. Some of these sports injuries include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Wrist Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer's Elbow
  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Stress Fractures
  • Shin Splints
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Posterior Tibial Tendonitis

Other sports injuries include trauma or damage; for example, one of the most common sports injuries that require rehabilitation involves the knee joint - a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Northern Michigan athletes often have particular difficulty participating in sports activities once they have sustained an ACL sports injury. Many sports require a functioning ACL to perform common maneuvers such as cutting, pivoting, and sudden turns. Therefore, athletes are often faced with the decision to undergo surgery in order to return to their previous level of competition, which generally requires some form of post-surgery rehabilitation.

Physical therapists at Dynamic Physical Therapy in Northern Michigan excel at sport injury rehabilitation and treatment. Physical therapy is an important aspect of treatment of almost all sports-related conditions. Physical therapists at Dynamic Physical Therapy use different modalities to increase strength, regain mobility, and help return patients to their pre-injury level of activity.

At Dynamic Physical Therapy, located in six communities of Northern Michigan, our rehabilitation program for sports injuries is designed to meet the needs of the individual patient, depending upon the type and severity of the sports injury.
