If you’re an athlete, see an athlete!

All of our Doctors of Physical Therapy are competitive athletes, which gives them a unique perspective as sports physical therapists.

They relate first hand to the thrill, challenge and rewards of participating in athletics. They also understand the deep frustration and emotion that comes when pain or injury holds you back.

They will combine their clinical expertise with their experience in athletics to help you get physically and mentally stronger than ever.

What Kind of Sports Injuries Do We Treat?

Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are movement experts who successfully treat individuals participating in a wide range of activities including swimming, cycling, running, triathlons, tennis, golf, skiing, weight lifting, martial arts, boxing, hiking, yoga, pilates, dance, gymnastics, group fitness and more. They also love to support our athletes in team sports including soccer, football, field hockey, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, volleyball, hockey, cheerleading, rowing and more.

We help athletes recover from all types of injuries so they can successfully return to sport. You can check out the varied list of injuries we treat on our conditions page.

How Do We Treat Sports Injuries?

Our Doctors of Physical Therapy are certified in the latest techniques used in professional sports such as Active Release Technique and Graston. You can see a full list of the techniques our DPTs use on the treatments page of our website.

Recovery

Recovery is a big factor in performance and injury prevention. IronPT now offers the secret tool professional athletes use to train harder, recover faster and perform better. We welcome you to try our cozy recovery lounge featuring Normatec Compression Boots and Sleeves. Compression clears metabolic waste, reduces soreness and improves circulation so you can keep training! 

Do you only treat athletes?

Iron is for everyone! Although we are uniquely qualified to work with athletes who want to maximize their performance, we individually work with each and every patient to move better, feel better and achieve their own goals.

Patient Success Stories

Words from his DPT:

Meet Malik, a talented Defensive Back at American International College! It's been exciting to see how his focus and fierce determination have quickly brought him back from a hamstring injury just in time for the upcoming football season. 

Malik was like a tornado of energy, agility and drive when he came in each day. The floor would actually shake as he attacked each and every exercise. 

It was exciting to see a patient approach his rehab with such intensity, respect and purpose. Having him in the clinic was a great reminder of what can happen when we engage and turn up the dial in our own lives.

“I tore my ACL in my right knee which required surgery and about six months of therapy. I thought this would feel so long, but it's already been over four months since my surgery, and it's going by quickly.

Physical therapy has made me feel better about myself and made me feel like I can overcome any obstacle. It has also made my knee feel so much better! I never expected it to improve so quickly.”

- Carly, Caldwell Soccer Player

“While performing my lyrical solo at competition, my knee buckled and I went down on it. I finished my dance and came in 4th place, but after going for an MRI, it turned out I dislocated my patella, tore a ligament and chipped a bone in my knee which needed to be surgically removed.

Physical Therapy is one of the most important things you need to do in order to heal properly. There is never a reason to live in pain. You can definitely find one hour of your day to do something for yourself that will help you “Get better & Be Better.”

-Jordan, Competitive Dancer
