Patients have access to a multidisciplinary team of sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, certified athletic trainers and strength and conditioning specialists.
We work to return athletes to their sport as quickly and safely as possible, through aggressive and innovative treatment and rehabilitation.
Sports physicals are offered in the spring and fall by a group of athletic trainers, physical therapists and local physicians at a reduced cost. A parent or guardian MUST accompany the athlete at the time of the physical. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made. Each athlete must complete the sports physical form prior to the physical and bring the completed form with you. You may obtain the form from your school. Appointments are available.

Sports Physical Therapy
Located within the state-of-the-art LifeStyleRx facility, sports-specific physical therapy by licensed therapists with extensive experience in the prevention and treatment of sports-related injuries is available.
Our program especially caters to pediatric and adolescent athletes who require a special level of care and attention due to various age-related concerns. Through experience and education in Pilates, plyometrics and sports-specific training, we can provide an accelerated rehabilitation program when appropriate. Access to the latest equipment at LifeStyleRx allows us to provide strength and endurance training as well. Regular contact with the athletic trainers at the local schools gives us the ability to quickly modify individual programs for a faster and safer return to the sport.
Our goal is to return the athlete to sport as quickly as possible and help avoid future injuries. An individual program will be designed for each athlete that most likely will include instruction in a home or gym program for strength and flexibility, as well as education about the injury and the biomechanics of movement in order to help avoid future injury.
Physician referral is required. Most insurance plans will cover physical and sports medicine services. ValleyCare accepts all PPOs, some HMOs and Medicare.
