Do you have pesky pain you’re trying to kick? We understand that many people simply don’t have the time to keep coming back to physical therapy. Maybe you’re in school, you have a full-time job, you’re chasing after young children or grandchildren, or you’re a committed athlete who simply can’t be out of the game for that long. We get it – you’re busy! When you come in for an injury or pain relief, you want your physical therapy treatments to be a “one and done” deal. At South Valley Physical Therapy, we want the same for you! Give us a call today to hear more about our injury prevention services, and how we can make sure your treatment with us will nip your pain in the bud once and for all. HOW CAN I PREVENT AN INJURY? South Valley Physical Therapy offers injury prevention screening to help determine your likelihood of experiencing an injury in the near future. Your body tells you in subtle ways what it can and cannot do – and we’re here to

listen. How do we do this? First and foremost, we will analyze how your body bends, twists, and moves altogether. This can include watching how you squat and jump, testing your flexibility, and noting your range of motion. During an injury prevention screening, we are on the lookout for abnormalities, whether it be in wobbly landing positions, weak limbs, low range of motion, or overall issues with posture and technique. We will also take note of any painful areas and focus closely on those to get to the root of the problem. After your initial screening, your physical therapist will come up with a plan to help significantly lower your risk of future injury. This may include manual therapy, technique and form assistance, therapeutic exercise, or any of our additional services that your physical therapist sees fit. They may also send you home with some helpful tips and exercises that you can do on your own to help prevent your risk of future injury.
