Sports Rehabilitation sessions are geared towards clients who have sustained a recent injury and are having trouble fully recuperating from the given injury.
The goal of these sessions is to help you fully recover and prevent any limitations that can occur from such injuries.
While Physical Therapy is a great tool, it addresses the specific site of the injury. This kind of sports rehabilitation will not only address the specific injury, but will also address the surrounding structure—paramount in supporting a safe recovery. When a fresh injury is not addressed, the body will incorporate the injured tissue into a new “incorrect” pattern; in the long term, the new “incorrect” pattern starts to feel “correct” as it becomes habit.
When an injury occurs, the body lays down scar tissue. The body’s focus is not whether the laying of scar tissue is neat and organized, but rather that the pieces are mended back together. The result is often that a giant bundle of scar tissue takes root at the point of injury.
Although the process of accruing scar tissue is necessary, it does make us prone to re-injuring the same site. It is therefore important to break up the scar tissue and realign the direction of its fibers so that they continue in the same direction as the muscle fibers. Once this is accomplished, the directional force of the muscle is not interrupted by a knot of scar tissue.
