How is physical therapy used as sports injury treatment?

Whether as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with surgery, physical therapy has the potential to greatly benefit athletes with most types of musculoskeletal conditions. The goal of physical therapy for athletes is to enhance strength, maximize range of motion and facilitate healing following injury through a regimen of gentle exercises and other conservative techniques. The specifics of a physical therapy treatment plan will vary according to the condition at hand. For example, sports injuries can range from routine joint sprains and muscle strains to more complex issues like anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and bulging discs.
