Nothing can set an athlete back quite like an ACL injury. An abrupt cut, a sudden stop or even an awkward landing can put an end to your season in no time. Most ACL tears tend to occur away from contact, but the risk for this type of injury can be greatly reduced with proper movement training. However, if you do suffer an ACL tear or strain your sports career isn’t over. Physical therapy can help you bounce back. We have specialized therapy centers design for athletes. Our physical therapist will design a custom recovery plan for you and your injury so you can get back to the sport you love.
