If you play sports or even watch them, you’re more than likely to see an injury occur during every single game or match. It’s simply the nature of sports. Even athletes in prime physical condition suffer injuries, some mild and some major.
In many sports, human bodies just aren’t designed to handle that kind of wear and tear or punishment, particularly in sports with heavy physical contact. Fortunately, there’s a way to take care of those injuries, work to prevent further injury, and get back on the field again…physical therapy.

Just about any! From minor muscle strains and pulls to ligament tears, compound fractures, and concussions, physical therapy can help nearly any injury sustained on the field of play. Here are some of the sports-related injuries we treat at Physical Therapy Now in Irving:

What Kind of Physical Therapy Is Used for Sports Injuries?
