Get back in the game with experienced, one-on-one physical therapy.

Staying active is important for a well-balanced, healthy life. Yet every year, thousands of people suffer a variety of bone, muscle and joint injuries while participating in sports as well as seemingly harmless activities such as gardening and walking. If you’ve been sidelined by pain or injury, physical therapy can help you heal and get back to your favorite sport or activity. Our experienced licensed therapists specialize in treating:

  • Back & neck injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Fractures & dislocations
  • Repetitive-motion injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Torn ligaments & muscles
  • Shoulder, arm, wrist & hand pain
  • Leg, hip, knee, ankle & foot pain
  • Arthritis, bursitis & tendonitis

Sport-specific therapy that gets results.

Our experienced staff prescribes the right exercises and treatments for your condition and your particular sport. Clinical studies have shown that active manual physical therapy is highly effective for reducing pain and restoring function quickly after an injury. We use a range of proven, time-tested techniques and the most advanced manual therapy, including soft-tissue mobilization, myofascial release and more.

Our therapists also use the Nintendo® Wii™ for Wii Rehab, which challenges patients to move much like athletes playing sports such as baseball, bowling, boxing, golf and tennis. In addition to adding a fun and competitive element, “wiihab” games require body movements that help improve strength, flexibility, balance and cardiovascular condition. Wii Rehab is useful for a range of patients, from children to the elderly, and for such conditions as broken bones and postsurgical recovery as well as injury prevention.

Denton Sports & Physical Therapy Center is the only practice in the area to offer an aquatic therapy program. During aquatic therapy, the buoyancy of warm water allows patients to relax and perform therapeutic exercises that may be difficult or painful on land. The gentle resistance improves strength, endurance and range of motion.

Other treatments include:

LIDO testing & strengthening – An FDA-approved, noninvasive device to assess motor function.

Fluidotherapy – A dry heat therapy that can help relieve pain, improve range of motion, encourage healing and decrease swelling

Phonophoresis – Uses ultrasound to enhance the absorption of topically applied analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents

Iontophoresis – Uses a small electric charge to deliver a medicine or other chemical through the skin – an injection without the needle

Make injuries take a hike.

If you are looking to reduce your chance of injury, our trainers can show you how through proper stretching, strength training and flexibility exercises. In addition, our specialists can help athletes attain enhanced performance through correction of gait problems, balance, coordination and movement retraining. Runners, cyclists, triathletes, swimmers and more have all been able to reduce their risk of injury with sport-specific therapy techniques.

Sports injuries are common, but they don’t have to sideline you forever. To learn more about how we can help you resolve your sports injury pain or reduce your risk of injury, call Denton Sports & Physical Therapy Center at 940-566-5714 today.
