Sports Medicine Q&A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is an area of health care dedicated to promoting the wellness and well-being of active individuals. Participating in organized sports and engaging in regular exercise is a good way to maintain a healthy weight and prevent chronic disease.

However, physical activity increases your risk of injury. This may be due to overtraining, poor conditioning, misuse of athletic equipment, or an unfortunate accident. 

At Pipeline Physical Therapy, the licensed doctors of physical therapy offer services that enhance sports and athletic performance to heal or prevent an injury. 

Am I a candidate for sports medicine?

Pipeline Physical Therapy offers sports medicine therapy for people of all ages and fitness levels. You may be a good candidate for sports medicine at the patient-centered practice if you’re a high school or elite athlete, weekend warrior, on active military duty, or new to working out. 

During your initial assessment, your dedicated licensed doctor of physical therapy conducts a comprehensive evaluation to fully understand your fitness needs and goals. 

Your physical therapist asks about your current sport and workout routine and your areas of concern. They also ask about your performance and fitness goals and review your personal medical and surgical history.

To determine the best sports medicine services for you, your physical therapist conducts a musculoskeletal evaluation to assess strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.
