Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Fox Physical Therapy Miami Sports Injury Rehabilitation program a is proud to offer specialized evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal disorders and injuries.

While we treat a large number of sports-related injuries, our rehabilitation services are not just for athletes, but for any active person with a musculoskeletal problem who wants to return to physical activity, including those who have undergone joint replacement surgery or have work-related overuse injuries. Our physical therapists serve a diverse patient population ranging in age from pre-teens to people in their sixties, seventies, eighties and beyond.

One of our major areas of focus is post-operative rehabilitation for patients who have conditions that require orthopaedic surgery, including:

  • ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) reconstruction
  • knee meniscus repair
  • hip and knee arthroscopy
  • foot and ankle surgery
  • rotator cuff repair
  • shoulder stabilization
  • shoulder arthroscopy
  • fracture repair
  • total joint replacement
  • spine surgery

The physical therapist will evaluate the patient post-operatively and develop a treatment plan. This typically involves two to three sessions per week at the start, eventually tapering to one session per week as the patient improves.

In addition, our physical therapists treat many patients for conditions that do not require surgery, with the goal of avoiding surgery if possible. These conditions include:

  • neck and low-back pain
  • arthritis
  • hip and knee injuries
  • foot and ankle disorders
  • muscle strains and tears
  • joint sprains
  • tendinitis, bursitis, and overuse injuries such as runner’s knee, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and ITB (ilio-tibial band) syndrome
  • shoulder impingement and instability
