Sports Rehabilitation - All Clinic Locations

Injuries are part of sports, but with our dedicated team of physical therapists, athletes can return to competition in a safe and efficient manner.

We work with local athletes to not only help them recover from injuries by developing a custom rehabilitation program, but to help prevent future injuries. These programs will help you recover, but will also allow you to progress so you can to return to competition when you’re ready, not before.

We also provide progress reports for coaches and parents, as well as education for athletes so they understand their injuries.

Athletes may contact us to schedule a free injury evaluation:

  • During regular business hours at any Taylor Physical Therapy Location 
  • Stop in at our Saturday morning sports clinic in Waverly from 7:30 am to 10 am August 25th through October 20th .

 


Strength and Conditioning

Strength & Conditioning Programs - Parkersburg and Waverly Clinics

Taylor Physical Therapy can also help athletes reach their peak performance level with our sports performance training program. This program develops sports-specific, position-specific and age-specific skills over the course of six weeks with two to three sessions per week. This program is designed to emphasize sport specific training to maximize performance, identify potential weaknesses in individual athletes, and corrects them with specialized exercises designed to improve strength, balance and flexibility to maximize performance while reducing the risk of injury. Our program is led by our director of sports performance, who is both a certified athletic trainer and certified strength and conditioning specialist. This unique combination of knowledge allows him bridge the gap between rehabilitation and performance with our athletes as they either work to return to play following injury or strive to improve athletic performance and prevent injury.
