We Help With All Types of Sports Injuries

 Physical therapy can help you recover from the most-common types of sports injuries, including:

  • Sprains, including ankles, hamstrings, and wrists
  • Overstretched or torn muscles
  • Strains, including ACL strains
  • Leg injuries
  • Foot injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Swollen, painful, or weak muscles
  • Pulled muscles
  • Achilles tendon ruptures
  • Bone fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Rotator cuff and other shoulder injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Concussions and other head injuries

You can sustain those injuries or many others while engaging in any of the running, jumping, diving, or strength-training associated with most sports. Those injuries often happen due to one or more of the following:

  • Failure to stretch or warm up properly
  • Improper technique or equipment
  • Overdoing it or overstraining, “walking it off.”
  • Forgetting to cool-down and stretch after the work out.

Though you can take steps to prevent many sports injuries, physical therapy usually is necessary once an injury has happened, or after it has been a problem for a while.

Your knees, feet, shoulders, hamstrings, elbows, ankles, shin, back, neck, and head are the most vulnerable parts of your body when you play sports. While these injuries can be excruciating, we can help. Our physical therapists help you rehabilitate your injury by helping you stretch, move, and strengthen the injured body part. We also work with you to help you restore as much range of motion as possible.

The right physical therapy program can often restore the body to full functionality so that you can get back out to play the sports that you love or other activities that make you you.

We Understand Athletes and We Treat the Best

Our physical therapists have treated and worked with athletes of all levels, from junior-high footballers and field hockey players to Olympic athletes. Members of Worcester’s professional teams – the Worcester Sharks among them.

Greendale Physical Therapy clinicians not only understand athletes’ physical needs, but also their emotional well-being. We share athletes’ passion, and we have the experience to return them to a high level of health and performance.

Cutting-Edge Techniques and the Latest Equipment

Our Greendale Physical Therapy clinics in Shrewsbury, Worcester, Clinton, and Marlborough give us ample space for the proper treatment and rehabilitation of athletes, and allows us access to sports-specific equipment, free weights, functional training equipment, and cardio equipment.

But we also know that athletes sometimes need more than standard treatments. That’s why some of our therapists are certified in the latest cutting-edge manual techniques, including the Graston Technique®. We also offer Aquatic Physical Therapy and Stott Pilates®. We incorporate these innovative methods into a patient’s overall treatment. With so many options at our disposal, we’re sure to have the right treatment for you.
