Injury Prevention

What is Injury Prevention?

Physical Therapists are movement specialists that can treat and prevent injuries. As a specialist in injury prevention, the Physical Therapist is trained to evaluate and examine how a patient moves, to detect deficits in strength and flexibility, and screen for movement impairments that can cause abnormal stresses on the body. The Physical Therapist can advise the patient on a maintenance program to prevent overuse injuries, provide return to sport guidelines, and teaches activity modifications and recommendations to avoid compensatory patterns.
