Prevalence of Fall Sports Injuries – Get Back in the Game at JAG Physical Therapy
Well at this point, the summer vacations are a distant memory and the kids are back to school. This means we all get some normalcy to our schedules. STOP!!! NORMALCY??????? What’s normal about the fall sports season? Everyone is in full throttle and working hard each and every day. No matter what sport you or your child plays, everyone is training and playing hard but, the most important thing is to prevent an injury and stay on the field. Every year at JAG Physical Therapy we see an influx of sports injuries in the fall season. These injuries can occur from a collision, ramping up too quickly or simply from overuse. Although JAG Physical Therapy holds numerous prevention of injury clinics throughout the year, athletes still get hurt.
JAG Physical Therapy’s physical therapists, athletic trainers, exercise physiologists and nutritionists can assist you to get back on the field as quickly as possible. Many professional, semi professional, college and high school athletes from around the country have recovered from their injuries with the guidance of our staff.
