Sports and physical therapy: The best way to up your game

We all know how important physical activity is for building and maintaining a healthy body – and mind. For many people, participating in a sport is the optimal way to stay active, because it combines an enjoyable activity and physical exertion. In other words, you’re having fun while you’re getting a workout.

When you play a sport, it’s only natural that you want to improve your game. Whether you want to keep your golf game closer to par or power up your serve on the tennis court, incremental improvement is what keeps the game fun and exciting. At the same time, it’s not uncommon for people to feel that they’ve hit a plateau, with their game leveling off and no sign of improvement. Whether you’ve reached that point, or simply want to avoid it, sports physical therapy is a good solution to keep you moving toward your goals.

Combining sports training and physical therapy can have multiple benefits. If you feel like your body is hindering you from developing your skills, a physical therapist can help you pinpoint where the problem might be, and work with you to find ways to resolve it – and keep it from coming back. For instance, using physical therapy for tennis elbow can lead to a reduction of pain and improved performance.

Whether you’re eager to try out a new sport or seeking advanced sports physical therapy for a chronic concern, working with Studio U’s expert physical therapists can be the key to not only better results, but a more enjoyable sporting experience.
