Why Is Physical Therapy So Important For Recovering From Sports Injuries?

The term “sports injury” covers many injuries during physical activity. Taking prompt action is crucial when faced with a sports injury, and physical therapy plays a vital role in the recovery process.

Whether it’s from lifting heavy weights at the gym, using improper running shoes, engaging in intense throwing, or suffering ankle injuries on the soccer field, our Telford physical therapy practice is here to provide the necessary assistance. Our skilled therapists will alleviate your pain and educate you on injury prevention techniques to safeguard against future incidents.

Since each injury and individual case is unique, the treatment plan and recovery time will vary based on factors like the injury’s severity, your medical history, and the potential need for surgical intervention. Rest assured, our physical therapy team can cater to your needs and facilitate a successful recovery.

Unlocking the Advantages of Physical Therapy for Sports Injuries

At our Telford clinic, our physical therapists are experts in movement, dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Following a comprehensive assessment of your condition, they will tailor an individualized treatment plan to expedite your return to the game!

Your personalized recovery plan may encompass various elements, such as manual therapy for targeted healing, stretching to enhance balance and mobility, and strengthening exercises to improve the affected area and its surroundings, enhancing your range of motion and reducing scar tissue.

During your Gear Up Physical Therapy and Wellness sessions, your physical therapist will conduct a series of tests and delve into your medical history, symptoms, and fitness objectives. Any relevant diagnostic tests, like X-rays, MRIs, or ultrasounds, will be meticulously reviewed.

Your injury’s core aspects, fitness level, and lifestyle, will all be considered when devising your treatment plan. The ultimate aim is to aid your current healing and fortify your body against future injuries that may arise in the aftermath of a sports injury. With our physical therapy, you can confidently move towards a healthier and more resilient athletic journey.

Typical Types of Sports Injuries

Engaging in athletic activities comes with the risk of various injuries. Among the most common sports injuries are:


A sprain occurs when a ligament connecting one bone to another is stretched beyond its normal range. Once a sprain happens, there is a higher likelihood of it recurring in the future.

Shin Splints:

Medial tibial stress syndrome, commonly known as shin splints, results from excessive stress on the shinbone and the underlying connective tissues. While shin splints can be painful and limiting, they can often be prevented by wearing appropriate footwear, warming up before exercise, and strengthening the leg and core muscles.

Knee Injuries:

The knee joint is one of the most complex and vulnerable areas in the body, making it susceptible to injury. Knee injuries may manifest as dull aches from the hip to the knee, pain during knee movement, or more severe conditions like an ACL tear.

Strain or “Pulled Muscle”:

A strain, also called a “pulled muscle,” occurs when a tendon that connects a muscle to a bone is stretched beyond its capacity. Once a tendon has been overextended, it becomes more prone to straining again in the future.

At Gear Up Physical Therapy and Wellness, we’ve created a 3 step process to get rid of your pain AND make sure it doesn’t come back again.

Step #1 - We Want To Listen To Your Story

Our medical system is frustrating. You wait weeks, sometimes months, for an appointment, only to get to talk to the doctors for 10 minutes before they have to run to the next patient and you’re left sitting there wondering, “What just happened?”

Even most physical therapy clinics operate this way. They’re not attentive, they’re fast-paced, and the therapist lacks the time to address the exact location of your pain.

This is why our first step is to listen to your story.

After working with lots of people with Sport/CrossFit/Functional Injuries we know that no two people are alike. Each person has a different body, a different history, and different types of pain. 

That is why our first step is to have an open conversation and time for you to tell your story. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life. 

Step #2 - Find Out WHY The Pain Started

Many people have a diagnosis, or medical term for what’s going on with their body. Maybe their doctor gave it to them, maybe tests showed the diagnosis, or maybe they found it online.

You could have been told that your only choice was to rest, take painkillers, or start thinking about surgery.

Sometimes, those things bring temporary relief, but they’re not addressing what CAUSED the problem in the first place.

Every person’s cause of pain is different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing as another person.

Our goal at Gear Up Physical Therapy and Wellness is to find that original cause of your pain, so not only does your pain go away, it STAYS AWAY! 

During the Sport/CrossFit/Functional Injury Assessment, you’ll find out what’s wrong, how long it’s going to take to fix it, and give you peace of mind that your problem can be fixed naturally!

Step #3 - Get Rid Of The Pain & Keep It From Coming Back

This is when the big transformation occurs. We develop a personalized plan that allows you to…

…Get back to your daily activities without fear of the pain coming back.
…Be able to get back to your favorite workouts, sports, activities
…Get back to feeling how you were pre-injury 

Our best clients are those who are motivated and ready to win back their active lifestyle. (Even if they feel stuck right now!)
