Did you know that athletes are naturally at an increased risk of sustaining an injury? This is not a result of any particular health issue that athletes have in common; rather, it is because athletes experience overexertion more often than non-athletes. The more frequently you push yourself to engage in physical activity, try new skills, or reach a new goal, the higher your risk of sustaining an injury becomes.

Are you an athlete looking to make the most of your sport? Are you looking for ways to decrease your risk of getting injured? Are you in need of relief from a recently sustained injury? Whatever the case may be, Advanced Rehabilitation can help. Contact us today to schedule your consultation. Tendinitis – a common sports injury: One of the most commonly reported sports injuries is tendinitis. Some sports injuries can happen in a second, due to a harsh fall or collision. However, other sports injuries can develop over time, due to excessive overexertion. Tendinitis is an incredibly common issue that causes pain to develop in the joints. This can impact the hips, knees, elbows, or shoulders. Pain caused by tendinitis can impact everyday activities, making it exceedingly difficult to remain comfortable and active in your day-to-day life. Tendinitis can pose challenges to even the simplest of activities, such as reaching to grab a glass from the top shelf of the cabinet or bending down to pick up a dropped item. To make it worse, tendinitis can worsen over time, becoming chronic and incredibly painful. Fortunately, by consulting with a physical therapist early on, you can avoid severe pain and work to improve your flexibility, range of motion, and overall function in the affected joint(s). At Advanced Rehabilitation, we can help you get back to living your life comfortably!

While many athletes can go through their entire sporting career without experiencing any serious injuries, it only takes one bad day of fatigue, distraction, or physical barriers to cause an accidental injury. Additionally, many athletes try to push through pain, which often leads to injuries becoming more severe. Because of this, it is especially important for athletes to work with a physical therapist. A physical therapist can help identify potential issues with posture or form that may increase your risk for injury. By doing this, you’ll know exactly how to improve your technique so you can decrease your risk of sustaining an injury. Furthermore, a physical therapist can also help identify any injuries as they develop and determine the best treatment options for you, so you can get back to your sport as quickly as possible.
