Training Through Injuries: Our Approach

No matter your sport, there are going to be times where you get banged up. Without the proper guidance/knowledge, how should you know if it is ok to keep training or just let the injury heal? At Streamline, we understand that no two injuries are alike. When athletes and individuals come to us seeking physical therapy (PT) for injuries or other conditions, we prioritize understanding their unique goals, sports involvement, and training volume. By determining what truly matters to our patients, we can tailor their rehabilitation programs accordingly. Whether it's training for a specific sport or preparing for a competition, our PT experts take these factors into account to ensure the most effective and customized treatment plans.

The Role of Programming:

One of the key aspects of successful injury rehabilitation is proper programming. In our clinic, we emphasize the importance of knowing both the sport and the patient's specific injury. For example, Dr. Ryan Spencer, DPT brings a unique perspective as he has a background in Jiu Jitsu and powerlifting. This firsthand experience allows him to grasp the demands, vulnerabilities, and intricacies of these sports. By understanding the movements, positions, and training volumes associated with each sport, our team can develop comprehensive and targeted programming for optimal recovery.

Addressing Short Timelines:

Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts face the challenge of dealing with injuries and short timelines. When patients express the need to recover quickly for an upcoming event, we engage in open and honest conversations with them. Understanding their training regimen, competition schedule, and the nature of their injury enables us to devise appropriate strategies. For instance with Jiu Jitsu, during the early stages of injury, we encourage modified training methods such as flow rolling or technique drilling. We also emphasize the importance of selecting training partners wisely to ensure a safe and supportive environment.

Holistic Rehabilitation:

At Streamline, we strongly believe in taking a holistic approach to injury rehabilitation. We acknowledge that rehabilitating an injury requires more than just a set of exercises. Our PT’s recognize the importance of psychological readiness and keeping athletes engaged with their sport. By manipulating variables such as tempo, speed, range of motion, and plane of movement, we allow individuals to maintain their fitness levels while avoiding the deconditioning that often accompanies extended periods of inactivity. By empowering our patients to remain active and confident in their abilities, we help them reclaim their performance potential.

Expertise and Trust:

The combination of in-depth sports knowledge and expertise in programming sets Streamline Performance. Our PTs are not only skilled professionals but also individuals who actively participate in sports and understand the demands firsthand. This shared experience fosters trust and confidence in our patients, knowing they are in the hands of experts who truly comprehend their sport and the challenges they face. By incorporating our own experiences as athletes and fitness enthusiasts, we can create a sense of camaraderie and understanding, making the recovery journey a collaborative and successful one. We are passionate about helping athletes and fitness enthusiasts overcome injuries and reach new heights in their performance. Our personalized approach, combined with our extensive knowledge of sports and programming, ensures that patients receive the specialized care they need. Whether you are recovering from a shoulder injury or preparing for a competition, our team of dedicated professionals is here to support you.
