RETURN TO PLAY
APS Return to Play program focus on athletes looking to return to their respective sport following an injury. In both an individual and small group setting, athletes are provided customized performance plans based on their personal goals and athletic requirements. This program works with athletes who have suffered various injuries from tears, sprains and strains.
Note: Prior to being admitted into the Return to Play program, each athlete must be cleared by their physician and their physical therapist or athletic trainer.
How it Works
Once an athlete has finished physical therapy, they work with a Kinesiologist to resume their sport-specific training. The Kinesiologist develops a custom program for the athlete that incorporates strength and conditioning methods with sport-specific drills that focus on the proper technique. The Kinesiologist also educates, demonstrates and supervises proper exercise with the ultimate goal of preventing and/or reducing sport-related injuries.
Facilitating the transition between rehabilitation and return to sport treatment.
How does the Return to Play Program differ from physical therapy?
The Return to Play Program is not covered by insurance. As opposed to physical therapy, it incorporates sport-specific techniques to help the athlete regain their pre-injury athletic abilities.
