SPORTS PHYSICAL THERAPY
Sanford POWER is committed to getting you back to an active lifestyle following a sports related injury, trauma, surgery, or overuse. Our physical therapy team is made up of experienced, board and sport certified physical therapists that are passionate about working with athletes from the initial injury to the integration of a sport-specific exercise program.
Innovative and injury-specific program for athletes, of all levels, recovering from an injury or surgery. It is coordinated and collaborative care between the POWER Center’s Return to Performance and physical therapy staffs. This program transitions an athlete from completion of physical therapy to fully returning to performance.
The Return to Performance program integrates the philosophies of functional rehabilitation with those of sport-specific training. The result is an individualized program which develops dynamic stability and provides for a safe return to performance activities.
Designed specifically to diagnose, treat and prevent running injuries. Our expert team of professionals, which includes sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, exercise physiologists and clinical biomechanists, work one-on-one with you to develop an individualized program to help you reach your specific running goals.
This innovative treadmill is a game changer in both training and physical therapy rehabilitation. It helps a broad spectrum of people – top athletes, orthopedic and neurologic patients, pediatric, geriatric, and those looking to lose weight – to achieve their personal health, wellness, or performance goals.
The lessened gravitational forces allow people all ages and experience levels to:
- Train without pain and reduce stress to joints and muscles
- Rehabilitate lower extremity injuries with less pain and less impact
- Maintain fitness while rehabilitating from injury or surgery
- Lose weight safely and exercise more intensively
- Push training sessions further and longer with less risk of injury
- Recover effectively and with less pain after training or competition
BFR resistance training uses a medically certified device designed to temporarily slow down blood flow to the arms or legs during low intensity, light weight resistance exercise. Research has demonstrated that this type of exercise may cause responses in the body that are similar to those experienced following high intensity, heavy weight resistance exercise, and may be used to effectively and safely reestablish muscle strength and size following some injuries.
Patients who experience muscle strains, back pain, neck pain or chronic soreness in their muscles may find relief in a hands-on approach. Dry needling uses a “dry” needle, (meaning one not capable of giving injections) to relieve muscle pain or soreness. It uses thin, solid needles with rounded tips inserted into sore or sensitive tissues.
