Sports Injuries Rehabilitation Services at MedStar National Rehabilitation Network

MedStar NRH offers a fully integrated, multidisciplinary approach sports injuries rehabilitation services for recreational and professional athletes. We are committed to the recovery and maintenance of health and well-being. A team of medical specialists, including physicians, sports physical therapists, occupational therapists, and certified athletic trainers (ATCs) is dedicated to helping you return to your desired level of activity as quickly and safely as possible.

Our goal is not simply to treat your injury, but to integrate the injured joint or muscle into the total performance of the body as we safely restore you to the highest possible level of activity. Emphasis is on early intervention, on techniques to avoid complications such as loss of endurance and muscle stiffness, and for maintaining good physical conditioning through alternate means during injury convalescence. We then provide you with training guidelines to promote performance and prevent reinjury.

We treat all types of injuries affecting athletes and active individuals, from tendinitis, sprains, muscle strains and carpal tunnel syndrome to myofascial, neck and back pain. We also provide comprehensive rehabilitation following surgical procedures:

  • Medical assessment and treatment (PT, OT and hand therapy)
  • Physical conditioning
  • Sport technique assessment using video and biofeedback
  • Movement re-education
  • Spine Care
  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment (physician)
  • Platelet-rich plasma treatments (physician)
  • Orthopedics
  • Psychological services for anxiety and stress management
  • Educational programs for coaches, parents and athletes
  • On-site personal training services

Sports Biomechanical Assessment

MedStar NRH is now offering PhysiMax, a cutting-edge, 3D-video technology that, until recently, was available to only elite military forces and professional sports teams.

This latest technological breakthrough in the field of sports medicine will provide you with a scientifically-tested movement score that our therapists and athletic trainers will use to analyze your dynamic leg-movement control, including two-leg and single-leg jump landing and take-off movement patterns.

As part of this evaluation session, you will receive a tailor-made corrective training recommendation for prolonging and enhancing your performance.
