Return To Play

About Our Return To Play Program

The number one predictor of a future injury is a history of injury. At Baylor Scott & White Rehab, our sports medicine therapists are specially-trained in effective ways to help you get better faster and return to the sport you love. Our Return to Play Test was developed through the latest research and expert consensus, and is administered by our licensed specialists to help you and your doctor make an informed decision on the appropriate time to return to full competitive activities.

Return To Play Test

Our individualized, post-rehabilitation testing bridges the gap between physical therapy and return to sport. The session focuses on:

  • Psychosocial screening for mental preparedness
  • Isometric strength testing
  • Dynamic hop and jump tests for power and symmetry
  • Functional balance, movement and control
  • Biomechanical control under load
  • Sports specific agility testing


How Do I Start?

Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation - Outpatient Therapy offers multiple locations to best meet your needs for Return to Play Testing. Testing is generally performed between five to six months after surgery and repeated three to four months later. After reviewing the preliminary test results with you, your physical therapist will discuss the next appropriate steps that will help you prepare for the final test and ultimately return to full sports. Talk with your physician or physical therapist to determine the appropriate time frame for your needs.
