Meet Our Sports Injury Rehabilitation Team Serving Marco Island
Our sports injury rehabilitation program is a comprehensive collection of treatments and therapies aimed at helping athletes fully recover from an injury. It involves progressively restoring mobility, strength, and function in the affected body part utilizing techniques such as:
- Physical therapy exercises
- Manual tissue work
- Pain and swelling modulation
- Gradual activity reintroduction
The overall goal of sports injury rehabilitation is to ensure that the injured musculoskeletal structures heal completely so you can return to your previous activities. We curate a treatment plan based on your needs, accounting for the severity of your condition, the nature of your accident, and what other treatments you’ve already tried.
Specific Treatments Our Marco Island Team Uses for Sports Injury Rehabilitation
When you visit Naples Community Injury Center, you’ll be met with our experienced healthcare providers in one of our three offices in Naples, Marco Island, or Estero. Depending on the nature of your condition, we may prescribe:
Instrument-Assisted Soft-Tissue Mobilization
Soft-tissue mobilization therapy is performed by sports rehabilitation specialists who manually apply targeted pressure to damaged muscles and connective tissues. Using hands-on friction and pressure-and-release methods, your physician aims to break down internal scar tissue adhesions.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation Therapy (ESTIM)
Electrical muscle stimulation therapy (ESTIM) treats sports injuries by using small electrical impulses to contract muscles in a controlled, therapeutic manner. This reeducates your neuromuscular pathways and rebuilds lost strength after injury-induced immobility. Targeted ESTIM sessions can restore range of motion, improve blood flow, and reduce atrophy.
Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared light therapy involves exposing injured tissues to light waves that can accelerate healing. Specialized handheld devices non-invasively deliver concentrated packets of light energy directly into damaged muscles, joints, or ligaments. The light waves penetrate deeply, stimulating localized blood flow and enhancing tissue oxygenation.
Kinesio Taping Therapy
Kinesio taping therapy involves applying specialized elastic therapeutic tape over injured or inflamed muscles to facilitate healing. The tape gently lifts the skin, allowing better blood circulation while also providing targeted muscle and ligament support.
Muscle Strains Treatment
Many people write off muscle strains as minor, inconveniencing injuries. Yet, without medical attention, a sprain can worsen into an issue that affects your range of motion and mobility. To treat this ailment, we use targeted electrotherapy that can reduce spasms and pain sensitivity.
One or a combination of these treatments aims to help you manage your symptoms and move toward maximum medical improvement. During each phase of your treatment plan, our team monitors your healing and makes changes to your treatment plan as necessary.
