The Importance of Sports In Our Lives

Sports represent more than just a game. 

Time and time again, we’re reminded of this with each one of our sports patients.

Being hurt and unable to play can feel like losing a part of yourself. This is because sports offer more than physical activity. It is a way to stay connected with friends and maintain our mental well-being. It provides community, relieves stress, and becomes an indispensable daily routine. So, when an injury happens, it can be more than just physically challenging. It can be frustrating because it disrupts something central to our identity and happiness.

Whether you’re into climbing, marathon running, playing in an intramural league, or competing in club sports, we get it. We understand the joy and satisfaction only sports can bring and how injuries can take that away.

Why Seek Sports Physical Therapy After an Injury?

No one wants to be sidelined… This makes “toughing it out”  by playing through discomfort and pain tempting, especially if you’re on a team or you’re training for an upcoming event.

But playing until you physically can’t anymore carries the risk of serious and long-term damage. Voluntarily sitting out in the short term is not easy, but it could prevent you from missing entire seasons. Getting checked out by a medical professional if you’ve been hurt is important. It gives you more information about what’s happening to your body that you can use towards proper healing and recovery.

Don’t let a small injury turn into a much bigger setback.
