Physical Therapy

Primary Care Sports Medicine now provides an on-site Physical Therapy (PT) facility under direct supervision of our providers. The goal of physical therapy here at PCSM, is to help our patients and athletes of all ages and skill levels to get back to a healthy and active lifestyle. Our goal is for you to get back to doing what you love to do most, pain free and with no risk of re-injury.

Our physical therapy approach involves a dynamic exercise program combined with manual therapy and other modalities such as electric stimulation (E-stim) and ultrasound. We pride ourselves on giving each patient the time and attention he/she deserves and tailoring a program to the specific needs of the athlete.

Sports Motion Analysis Testing

We also offer high-speed video analysis of sports specific movements using DartfishTM computer based software. Use of this video software allows for precise biomechanical analysis and identification of faulty movement patterns placing the athlete at risk for injury.

Some beneficial uses include:

  • Squatting and running flaws contributing to anterior knee pain (patellofemoral pain).
  • Improper jumping and cutting mechanics placing the athlete at risk for ACL injury.
  • Improper technique & mechanics for throwing/ pitching, tennis and golf.

Furthermore, detailed analysis provides visual feedback for re-educating the athlete on correct mechanics and form; which is beneficial for both performance improvement and injury prevention.
