What is the therapy process at PRO Rehabilitation Services?

Initial Evaluation
A full detailed history and evaluation of the athlete occurs in a one-on-one session with the Physical Therapist. This is the most critical phase of the therapy process. It provides the information needed to determine all factors that may predispose the athlete to the injury. The evaluation reviews the physical needs of the athlete. Our therapists evaluate the athlete's strength, flexibility, and biomechanical and structural changes. They review the equipment, shoes and bracing. They look at the training patterns of the particular sport as well as the position the athlete plays in that sport. Overall, the evaluation determines the nature of the injury and guides the clinician to the best course of therapy.

Treatment
Post evaluation our therapists will specifically design a treatment program based on the evaluation findings. They will educate the athlete on safe and independent home exercise. The therapists will recommend modifications to the sports activity to decrease stress to the injured area. The patient's goals may be focused on education and exercise related to postural positions and areas of tightness and weakness. Our therapists will work with the patient to restore balance and to progress the athlete to normal sport related activity.
