Access Sports Medicine’s Return to Play Program is designed for any athlete who has finished physical therapy and is looking to get back into sport-specific training to regain their pre-injury abilities. This program works with athletes of all ages who have suffered various injuries, from ACL tears to concussions and even simple sprains and strains.

How it Works

Once an athlete has finished physical therapy, they work with a Certified Athletic Trainer to resume their sport-specific training. The Athletic Trainer develops a custom program for the athlete that incorporates strength and conditioning methods with sport-specific drills that focus on the proper technique.

The Athletic Trainer also educates, demonstrates and supervises proper exercise with the ultimate goal of preventing and/or reducing sport-related injuries.
