We help our clients improve flexibility, range of motion, mobility, recovery, enhance athletic performance, and decrease pain, soreness, and injury risk.

Pre/Post-Operative Rehabilitation

The Athletic Training Room is staffed with certified athletic trainers who specialize in rehabilitation of sports and activity related orthopedic injuries. We use an evidence-based approach to the rehabilitation of sports and orthopedic injuries by applying the most current research and working with your surgeon. We work with you before your surgery to enhance the outcomes and then develop your long-term rehabilitation program designed on an individual basis, to speed your recovery.

Concussions

A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by rapid movement of the brain against the internal wall of the skull. This can be caused by a direct blow to the head: by a ball, the ground, or another athlete. Or by a hit to the body, which causes rapid movement of the head and neck. Each concussion is unique and needs to be treated on an individual basis. Please follow the link below for more information on signs/symptoms, when additional medical care is needed, and how to handle a concussed athlete at home. Link to Concussion Home Care If you suspect that your son or daughter has a concussion, have them evaluated by a provider who specializes in concussion evaluation and management. Call us at 630-484-7818 to be evaluated and for an individualized plan to return your son or daughter back to participation.

Injury Prevention

The best way to keep an athlete on the field is to prevent the injury from occurring. One of the best tools to determine what is needed to prevent injury is to be tested using a Functional Movement Screen. A series of movement patterns are used to identify compensations that an athlete makes when performing these movements. Those compensations are evaluated and a program is designed for each individual athlete to correct muscular and structural imbalances, relax tight muscles, strengthen underused muscles, and improve muscular efficiency – thus, reducing injury risk. Call 630-484-7818 to schedule a 30 minute consult and Functional Movement Screen. We will provide you with individualized information to increase athletic performance and reduce injury risk.

Treatment of Acute Injury

If your son or daughter has experienced an injury call 630-484-7818 to schedule an orthopedic injury evaluation.
