From the school and club athletes to the weekend warrior, we design a functional sport specific training regimen that challenges and meets the growing demands placed on kids and adults who compete.

Injury Assessment & Rehabilitation
In the event an athlete suffers an injury or is recovering from surgery, Northern Rehab's goal is to return that athlete to sports quickly and safely. We use a combination of gentle hands-on treatment, therapeutic exercise, and performance enhancement drills to improve strength and skill.

Sports Specific Video Analysis
A Northern Rehab therapist will record and analyze the athlete's walking / running gait, swinging, throwing or lifting form, with recommendations on ideal body mechanics.

Kinesiotape
At Northern Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Associates, kinesiotape is used as an adjunct to your physical therapy treatment. Kinesiotape is a treatment used by physical therapists to help decrease pain and swelling, improve the quality and quantity of range of motion to the area being addressed, and improve muscle recruitment with active motion. The special elastic qualities of kinesiotape applied over the skin assist and give support to the muscles or prevent over-contraction of the muscles. The kinesiotaping method has been around for over 30 years, but has been popularized by professional athletes use. Your specially trained physical therapist at Northern Rehab will determine if kinesiotape is appropriate for treating your injured area, or your doctor may order it specifically.

Individual Conditioning Programs
Northern Rehab conditions and improves an athlete's performance in their sport or activity.

Strength, flexibility, balance and power are evaluated by one of our trained physical therapists. We then design a functional exercise program including strength and cardiovascular training, stretching, and other performance enhancement techniques.

Athletes achieve their personal best with an individualized Northern Rehab training program and hands-on instruction.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
