Orthopedic physical therapy focuses on the musculoskeletal system- muscle, tendon, ligament, and joint injuries. At Pure Sports we use a wide array of innovative techniques to facilitate recovery and decrease pain by restoring proper function and mobility of those injured regions.  Being located in a gym setting allows Pure Sports to achieve optimal results in achieving your individualized goals by utilizing state of the art equipment so that you can return to functional activities during and after your injury.

Pure Sports treats an array of musculoskeletal injuries, whether acute or chronic including, but not limited to:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Strained muscles
  • Muscle spasms

  • Herniated disc or disc bulges
  • Post-operative cases
  • Sport injuries
  • Rheumatological conditions with a musculoskeletal component
  • Arthritis
  • Postural Dysfunctions

Services provided at Pure Sports include:

Manual Therapy: Manual therapy is a clinical approach utilizing skilled, specific hands-on techniques. It is designed to give a therapeutic effect to facilitate appropriate motor control and movement patterns within the joints and soft tissue. This in turn will eliminate the inflammatory-pain response and restore normal body function.

Dry Needling: This is treatment for muscular tightness and spasm, known as a trigger point, which is often associated with an injury. An acupuncture needle is placed into the muscle at the trigger point, causing relaxation of the muscle. This will then create a proper muscular contraction, increase muscle flexibility, and decrease pain and symptoms. Dry Needling is useful for a variety of musculoskeletal injuries such as soft tissue and joint pain.

Therapeutic Exercise: The physical therapist will instruct and demonstrate clinical based exercises that help increase strength, joint mobility, ROM (range of motion), and flexibility of the injured and surrounding regions. All of which will lead to returned function and performance.

Home Exercise Program: A unique and tailored exercise program for each patient’s specific injury. It is essential to be compliant with the home program as it optimizes quick recovery and reinforces the manual therapy that is performed during treatment sessions.

Patient Education: Explaining the nature of the injury is crucial so that patients can gain knowledge of their injury and rehabilitation process. Patient education is an integral part of physical therapy and will be implemented during the initial evaluation and throughout each treatment session so the patient can avoid further injury and prevent future ones as well.

Modalities provided at Pure Sports include:

Laser: This laser is non-invasive and it lessens pain by using a laser diode and light emitting diodes (LEDs) that generate infrared energy to deliver a therapeutic effect.  The TQ Solo laser is FDA cleared for relief of muscle pain, joint pain, muscle spasm, relieving stiffness and promoting relaxation of muscle tissue, and increasing blood flow.

Ultrasound: This therapeutic modality uses ultrasonic sound waves that are absorbed by soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and scar tissue) using a transducer and gel. It is used for treating tendonitis, bursitis, muscle strains, ligament sprains, muscles spasms, bursitis, arthritis, etc. Benefits of ultrasound include increasing blood flow, pain control from reduction in swelling, and increased soft tissue mobility.

Electrical stimulation:  This modality helps to decrease pain and/or strengthen muscles using an electrical impulse that is delivered to the muscles via electrode placement.
