A physical therapist can help you move freely again without pain and discomfort and feeling renewed and ready to move on. They can even help you prevent an injury altogether. The American Journal of Sports Medicine in August 2008 stated a study of 1,435 NCAA Division 1 female soccer players demonstrated that those who participated in a physical therapy program had an overall ACL injury rate 41 percent lower than those who did only a regular warm-up prior to practice.
While playing a round of golf or simple house chores may seem harmless, but these everyday activities can result in injury due to abnormal movement, stress on joints and strain on muscles. Since physical therapists are experts in knowing how the body works, they are able to design personalized treatment plans to reduce the risk of injury whether in everyday activities or sports.
Consider a Physical Therapist for your annual wellness check up to avoid injury, move better, feel great and make each year full of fun and great memories.
