Why is sports rehabilitation important?
Each sports rehabilitation program is unique, taking into account your age, level of physical activity, and continuing physical and mental development.
Our highly trained Evanston, IL physical therapist will assist you with improvements in strength, stability, and body awareness, in addition to working on jumping, landing, and cutting techniques. Perhaps most importantly, the techniques you learn will significantly reduce the injury risk of ACL injuries, non-contact injuries, and overuse injuries, such as shin splints or stress fractures. Our ultimate goal is to see you through to recovery and make sure you aren’t benched for a longer period of time than is necessary.
