At Rock Valley Physical Therapy, we believe in the team approach to sports medicine and sports injury physical therapy. This approach includes Certified Athletic Trainers, Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeons, coaches, and school personnel. Other specialists – including physical therapists, occupational therapists, strength and conditioning specialists, dentists, oral surgeons, and optometrists – are also included. The primary goal of each specialist is the athlete’s physical and mental health and safety. For athletes to receive optimal healthcare, individual specialists must work together as a team.
A team approach to sports medicine is imperative to effective, efficient treatment for sports-related injuries – returning the athlete to their sport as quickly and safely as possible. At Rock Valley, we are proud to have established a successful team approach to sports medicine, striving to stay on the cutting edge of care in our communities!
As a part of the sports medicine health care team, services provided by athletic trainers include primary care, injury and illness prevention, wellness promotion and education, emergent care, examination and clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation for injuries and medical conditions. Spending countless hours with their athletes, ATs facilitate the action of the sports medicine for the best interest of the athlete.
Rock Valley ATs strive to stay at the top of their game, utilizing hands-on skills, pursuing continued education opportunities, and employing unmatched technology. We are proud to have paired with ORA Orthopedics and PCI Orthopedics for exceptional hands-on care of our athletes, as well as C3Logix and Healthy Roster for prime concussion management.
