The sports rehab team at All Children's is made up of physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers who are experts not only in sports rehabilitation, but specifically pediatric sports rehabilitation. The team collaborates with the referring physician to maximize results. We specialize in the treatment of acute and chronic sports injuries, and address underlying areas of concern to prevent future injuries.

Program Overview

Why is Sports Rehabilitation Important?

Beginning therapy early allows the athlete to benefit from manual soft tissue and joint mobilization to decrease the initial pain and inflammation resulting from an injury. Treating sports injuries purely with medication and rest does not target the strength and skills required to return to a sport and decrease the risk of re-injury. All Children's blends therapists' unique knowledge of orthopedics and pediatric growth & development with a certified athletic trainers' distinct knowledge of sport-specific demands. This sports rehabilitation approach is used to provide comprehensive care of the athlete from initial injury to return to sport.
