Return to Sport
Have you been out of your sport due to injury? Have you made an attempt to return to activity but find the nagging discomfort is still present? Caitlin has found returning to sport after injury isn’t as simple as an athlete simply taking time away then picking up where they left off. Instead, it takes a periodized approach to incorporate skill specific training back into one’s training regimen. This can safely be done once the area of limitation and weakness is addressed.
Whether it’s muscle or tendon pain, a joint sprain, lack of joint mobility, or poor flexibility these are all treatable pathologies that a Doctor of Physical Therapy can assist with. Through a consultation with Caitlin, via Skype or Facetime, she can devise a program to address your area of limitation while progressing back towards your sport of choice.
Caitlin understands that each athlete is very different and so her return to sport programs are all individual, not protocol driven. Depending upon your current status, return to sport time will differ between each individual. Each athlete will receive a strength and stabilization program with a progressive build and end goal of a full return to sport without discomfort.
