Sports Therapy

To ensure the athlete's safe and speedy return to their sport by integrating orthopedic manual therapy along with functional core and extremity exercise programs and sports-specific training.

Service Overview

The Beaumont Sports Therapy team provides each athlete with a biomechanical examination to determine the movement impairment(s) causing injury or performance deficits. The musculoskeletal examination assesses the athlete's posture and body mechanics (at rest and during movement), gait and foot analysis, joint and soft-tissue mobility/range of motion, functional strength, muscle length, balance, coordination and agility. A customized, functionally progressive sports therapy program is tailor-made to meet the needs and tolerance of each injured athlete. The Sports Therapy team gears each treatment plan to the specific demands placed on the athlete when returning to their previous level of sports participation. The ultimate goal is to obtain the athlete's full recovery and confidence in returning to play.
