A sports medicine specialist observes the movements that athletes perform in their sport, identifies their musculoskeletal limitations, and gets them back to participating in the activities they enjoy. These therapists understand the demands of sports in both premiere and recreational activities and tailor the interventions to suit each athlete’s specific needs.
The therapist will begin by assessing body movement and mechanics for the athlete’s mobility, stability, and ability to generate speed and power for their specific sport. They will then create a comprehensive program at the athlete’s level of function to attain their sport specific goals.
You are all AMAZING!!! Amber and Jolene are the best! When Abbie became injured 1 1/2 years ago in dance- something she loved to do, she went through 3 doctors, another physical therapists, many painful procedures and finally found a Dr. Hedlund who sent us to Hulst Jepsen where she was blessed with 2 amazing therapist and their staff! Abbie thought she may never dance again! She had many ups and downs in her therapy but no one ever gave up on her. They always listened to her and helped her do her best! Now she has finished her therapy, is starting dance again in a few weeks, is auditioning for the Nutcracker and her dance team at school!!!Holly
