Sports Therapy has been proven to be effective to decrease pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal injuries. These injuries can include tendonitis, ligament sprains, injuries to the joints, cartilage tears, and several more. Athletic Physical Therapy will result in recovery from those injuries, improved function, and lessons in preventing further damage to those parts of the body. The causes of these injuries can result from a variety of movements. The trauma to this area can be caused from jerking movements, accidents, falls, fractures, sprain, dislocations, and direct blows to the muscle. NJ Physical Therapy addresses all the factors needed to enhance the healing and recovery of each athlete. There are delays that may occur in the healing process, for example: people who correlation with smoking, alcohol consumption, poor sleep, lack of physical activity, increases the physiological stress. What separates sports physical therapy from traditional physical therapy methods is, rather than in bed recovery sports therapy continues progresses to bring the person back into athletic shape. New Jersey physical therapist will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine an appropriate treatment plan to get the athlete back into shape. This will involve engaged and cautious use of medication, physical movements, dieting, and conditioning. Poor diet such as high saturated fat and low protein or vitamin depletion secondary to alcohol and smoking will slow down the process. For injuries that involve musculoskeletal recovery, the sports rehabilitation should begin after the medical pathology is complete. The New Jersey physical therapist should be highly educated regarding the various aspects of the athlete’s previous and current condition. Important factors should be the athlete’s speed, strength, agility, power, and conditioning. For any sports being played, these factors play a role on the performance of the athlete. Sports physical therapy should transition the person back into a position where they still feel prior the injury. Musculoskeletal sports therapy will focus on the decreasing of the pain with either passive or active treatments. Pain management techniques associated with NJ Massage therapy will help expedite the recovery process. Example of sports therapy movements would include stretching, strengthening exercises, pain relief exercises, and low-impact aerobic training. Example of passive sports rehabilitation methods would include heat/ice packs, TENS units, and ultrasound. The important thing to keep in mind about NJ physical therapy is that each patient will respond differently to each of these methods. Each athlete has different patterns of movement especially in the habitual sports that they play. It is also important to monitor the body development and the alignments of the body especially for NJ Massage therapy. The most challenging part about sport physical therapy is returning the muscle memory predisposed in an athlete. The NJ physical therapist will progressively increase the challenge factor, weight, and speed in the recovery process.
