What is Sports Medicine?
Athletes are everywhere. You do not have to be a professional to take your sport seriously. Athletics keep us active and create wellness both mentally and physically.
At Agile Physical Therapy, we take your sport seriously. Our Sports Medicine program is meant to keep you participating in your sport of choice and help you obtain your specific fitness goals. You are only as strong as your team, at Agile, 68% of our physical therapists are board-certified compared to the 12% national average, which results in highly qualified therapists helping you achieve your goals.
No human is the same and therefore no injury should be treated the same. Taking a proactive approach to an injury often decreases your recovery time and gets you back to your sport sooner.
