Physical Therapy for Injury Prevention-Is It Worth It?

Here at Cohen Health & Performance we help injured athletes get back in the game. “The game” could be the tennis court, running trail, weight room, lifting your kids or the ability to comfortably get off the ground (just to name a few). The majority of people we work with initially come in because they are in pain. However, what if you could address the reasons for your pain and resulting limitations before they happen? Addressing any movement compensations or risk factors for injury prior to the instance when pain occurs not only makes life more pleasant but saves time and money. We all develop compensations as a result of our daily lives. Perhaps we sit a great deal at work, have an old injury or haven’t spent enough time working on our own health/well-being. Many of these compensations are good as they help us handle our daily lives, however, some can result in pain when left unchecked. This can be further exacerbated when the intensity is increased with exercise. Exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, however, it can be difficult when injuries occur. So how do you know if an injury prevention screen is right for you? Let me answer that question with some questions! -Have you recently begun exercising after being much more sedentary? -Are you about to partake in a brand-new form of exercise? -Do you have a history of injuries in joints such as your shoulders, low back, hips, knees, or ankles? -Do you feel stiff or a lack of mobility? If you answered yes to any of these questions or are just curious if there is anything that you can do to improve your health and longevity, then you could greatly benefit from an injury prevention screen.
