What to Expect
When You Visit

Our team has extensive experience working with athletes of all ages and abilities from youth sports to professional athletes. Our background and experience in sports medicine sets us apart as your go to professional for managing your sport related injuries.

Conditions We Treat

  • Muscle Strains
  • Ligament Sprains
  • Tendon disorders
  • ACL reconstruction
  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Post-surgical fractures
  • Concussion

Muscle Strain Treatment

In sports therapy, we come across muscle strains often. Muscles strains can happen when:

  • You repeatedly use the muscle (overworking it) in the same way, which happens often in sports
  • You neglect stretching and warming up prior to using the muscle
  • You lack flexibility in the muscle fibers, leading to excessive tightness

 

When you experience a muscle strain, it may feel like:

  • Pain
  • Lack of mobility
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Spasms

 

At 208 PT, we offer muscle strain treatments that help to release the muscle and loosen it once again, while also improving mobility and strength in order to prevent it from happening again. Strain injury treatments involve a lot of gentle treatments and icing to reduce swelling and promote healing.

Ligament Sprain Treatment

What’s a ligament? This is the tissue that connects your bones to a joint. When a joint moves in an unnatural way, it can lead to a sprain. One of the most common types of ligament sprains we see is rolled ankles. This kind of injury is very common in sports therapy because most athletes have to run, jump, or make physical contact at one point or another. Whether you need surgery or not, working with a sports therapy office can help you get a jumpstart on healing your ligament sprain. Beginning phases of ligament sprain treatment start with:

  • Bicycling
  • Weight training
  • Walking slowly
  • Stretching and mobility exercises

All aspects of ligament sprain treatment are intended to help you gain back your mobility and strength to make walking, running, and jumping easy again.

Tendon Disorder Treatment

When your tendons seem to not be working properly, you may be dealing with a type of tendon disorder. Strain and overuse can cause your tendons to break down and lose their ability to function at their highest level, leading to things like tendonitis. Because tendons are very soft, recovery is incredibly difficult. Working with an experienced team of sports therapists is crucial to getting back on track. We always recommend resting, but we work to strengthen the tendon area and surrounding muscles. With a focus on eccentric exercises, we are able to slow down the movements and lengthen the muscle while building strength. We perform several methods for tendon disorder treatment including:

  • Eccentric strength training
  • Massage
  • Dry needling
  • And more

Testimonials

"Tyrel is the most amazing physical therapist. I was so lucky to have him help me after my car accident. I know that I'm able to have my life back because of him. He is also so fun to be around. He shows you that you can do it and get through the pain. I hope I never need physical therapy again but if I do I know I will be bugging tyrel again."
