Everyone knows that exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and for athletes, getting outside and pushing yourself to be the best you can be is even more than that — it’s part of your way of life. So what happens when you experience an injury? A sports injury can put you on the sidelines for anything from a couple of days to a couple of months, and for someone who looks forward to their exercise routine everyday,orwho relieson theirathleticengagements for their professional or social life, an injury can be totally derailing. While sometimes it may seem like there is nothing to do but wait an injury out, this is most often not the case. Injuries like sprains and strains take a long time to heal, and while you need to give your body the rest it needs so that you are able to bounce back at full strength, you don’t need to spend all of that

time on the sidelines. Physical therapy is the best solution for coping with a sports injury. By working with a physical therapist, you can develop strategies to begin strengthening muscles surrounding the injured area, potentially reduce long-term damage to the affected area by addressing flexibility and range of motion issues that frequently develop during an injury,and learnwaysthatyoucancontinuetoengage in physical activity without impacting the injured area. And if your injury ends up requiring surgical treatment, then physical therapy is the best way to ensure that your body recovers from the experience and that you are ready to hit the ground running once you are cleared to return to physical activity.
