At On Track Physiotherapy Physical Therapy in Ann Arbor, our personalized sports rehab programs are designed to help athletes and weekend warriors like you recover from injury and regain your competitive edge.

Customized Recovery Roadmaps For Athletes

Our sports medicine team understands the mental anguish an injury can cause and how eager you are to get back on the field or court. We provide more than just exercises and modalities to treat your symptoms. Your customized sports rehab plan is a holistic injury recovery roadmap, combining:

  • Hands-on manual therapy to improve range of motion, reduce pain and swelling
  • Progressive strength training to rebuild stability around the injury
  • Dynamic movement pattern analysis to identify and address dysfunctions
  • Injury-specific protocols tailored to your sport’s demands
  • Guidance on proper nutrition to optimize healing
  • Mental training for confidence and resilience

This multidimensional approach helps you heal faster, perform better, and remain injury-free.

Faster, More Complete Healing For Your Goals

The big difference between basic physical therapy and dedicated sports rehab is the level of personalization and sport-specific detail. Dr. Morgan Kennedy and the On Track Physiotherapy team tailor the program not just to your injury but also your fitness level, position, and the biomechanical needs of your sport.

The goal isn’t just to get you back playing ASAP. It’s to help you recover to your peak potential so you come back stronger, faster, and more powerful than before your injury. Our patients are typically ready to return to competitive play 20-30% quicker thanks to these key advantages:

Target The True Cause, Not Just The Symptoms
Instead of a one-size-fits-all recovery template, your customized program addresses factors that contributed to the injury like strength imbalances, poor mechanics, overuse, and more. This precision rehab resolves the root issue so you heal correctly.

Prevent Reinjury Through Corrective Exercises
Getting back to competition quickly is great, but experienced athletes know a poorly healed injury can easily happen again. Your program will incorporate corrective exercises to resolve dysfunction, improve movement patterns, and build protective strength to keep you thriving on the field.

Enhance Performance With Sport-Specific Training
The final phase of the program focuses on power development, speed, agility, and other athletic components tailored to the sport at hand. So not only will you recover, but you can come back feeling like a better all-around athlete.

Sports Rehab FAQs

If you’re curious whether sports rehab is right for your injury recovery, here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

What Exactly Is Sports Medicine Rehab?
Sports rehab is a type of physical therapy specifically tailored to injuries affecting athletic performance. Treatments are designed around your sport’s specific demands to help you return safely and as quickly as possible. The focus is on complete recovery – not just symptom relief but restoring full mobility, and strength, and preventing future re-injury.

How Is This Different From Regular Physical Therapy?
While traditional physical therapy concentrates on pain relief and basic strength/mobility, sports therapy maximizes these while also focusing on power, agility, endurance, and other athletic markers relevant to your sport. The end goal is full capability so you can perform at your personal peak.

What Does Sports Injury Treatment Consist Of?
Your treatment plan will likely feature a combination of hands-on manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, sports-specific drills, injury education, home corrective plans, and mental strategies for confidence. The variety of techniques and areas addressed lead to quicker, more comprehensive recovery so you can get back out there at 100%.

I cannot recommend Greg enough! I came to him in crisis after developing an injury one month before my marathon, but he was able to work with me to safely get me back on the starting line for my race. As a runner, I am no stranger to injury and have seen a handful of PTs in my life, but I can confidently say that Greg’s knowledge, training, and skills are the best I’ve worked with! I now consider dry needling to be a crucial part of my running recovery.

Greg is remarkable. I am not an athlete but an active older woman. I had a very painful injury and Greg was able to get me back in shape. Unlike traditional physical therapy Greg himself treats you for your entire visit. He walks you through an exercise program and gives you instructions to follow at home. In my case he followed up with a dry needling and massage of the injured area which was very helpful. You never feel rushed. He listens to your concerns about your initial injury and any other ache or pain you might have. He’s very professional but also fun to chat with during your session. I look forward to my visits and will definitely call him again for treatment.
