ORTHOPEDIC & POST REHAB / LASER THERAPY
Injuries are part of our daily lives especially when we stay active. In sports, it’s not a matter of “if” but “when” the injury monster will attack. As an injured athlete or individual, the main goal is to return to playing the sport or activities that you enjoy doing.
As a former amateur athlete and soldier, I have experienced the pain and agony of being on the injured side. The rehabilitation process for an injured athlete is slightly different from that of a non-athlete. An injured athlete's long-range goal is to return to play whereas the non-athletes long-range goal is to return to normal daily living activities.
Choosing to work with a clinician who has both the knowledge of soft tissue repair coupled with the biomechanical background of the sport and its physical demands on the body is optimal. Basic rehabilitation to the injured site alone is inadequate to prepare the body (as a whole) for the vigorous pounding athletes sustain during their sporting activities. Here at Ultra Sports, we have some of the best clinicians who have a proven record of getting athletes back to play as quickly and safely as possible. Our team uses a diverse and dynamic approach to repairing soft tissue damage. Ultra-Sports is the “Rehab Joint” where all injured athletes should visit for treatment. Because we specialize in rehabilitating athletes, we are “second to none” in comparison to other rehabilitation clinics.
Laser therapy is a medical treatment that uses focused light to stimulate a process called photobiomodulation (PBM). During PBM, photons enter the tissue and interact with the cytochrome c complex within mitochondria. This interaction triggers a biological cascade of events that leads to an increase in cellular metabolism, decrease in pain, reduction in muscle spasm, and improved microcirculation to injured tissue. This treatment is FDA cleared and provides patients a non-invasive, non-pharmacological alternative for pain relief. When injuries happen, addressing the inflammation and speeding up recovery time is paramount. Non-invasive Deep Tissue Laser Therapy™ helps with both short-term pain blocking and improved long-term function. Treating pain and inflammation, while setting up patients for optimal tissue healing, is paramount to most plans of care.
