Sports Therapy Q & A

Why do I need sports therapy?

Sports therapy is a type of rehabilitative program that’s catered to athletes and exercise enthusiasts. Treatments are targeted towards helping you recover from injuries, improve instability, and build up muscle strength to prevent further issues. You might need sports therapy if you have any of the following conditions.

  • Ankle sprain
  • Shin splints
  • Foot or ankle fractures
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Heel spurs

In some cases, sports therapy is essential if you have lingering foot pain from a previous injury. It’s never too late to get started on treatment.

What should I expect from sports therapy?

Whether you play a ball game, are an avid dancer, run long distances, or participate in any other type of sport, you can feel confident that the team at Town Center Foot & Ankle is going to help you get back to your activity as quickly as possible. Depending on your specific injury and if you have any pain or swelling during treatments, your sports therapy sessions can include:

  • Therapeutic massage
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Cryotherapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Ultrasound

Your practitioner also spends time teaching you exercises that are specifically designed to build strength, help tissues heal, improve joint mobility, and reduce pain. Expect to be in sports therapy sessions for 2-3 times per week, possibly for several months. But when complete, you should be stronger and more agile than you were in the first place.

How can I prevent sports injuries?

Once you’ve recovered from your current sports injury, the team at Town Center Foot & Ankle teaches you how to prevent further sports injuries, so you hopefully never have to miss another day on the field. Part of your preventive sports therapy plan can include:

  • Custom supportive orthotics
  • Detailed exercise plan
  • Taping or splinting


They can even spend time showing you proper warm-up and cool-down exercises you need to do each time you work out to prevent further issues.
