Tennis Anyone?

I am an avid tennis player and over the years have enjoyed treating and advising all levels of tennis players, from hackers to professionals. Like dancers, tennis players get many unique injuries and ailments that are very specific to the biomechanics and demands of their sport. To get tennis players better, and keep them better and playing at their best, a thorough tennis related analysis and treatment plan is usually required. When my tennis players require therapy, I utilize the Premier Orthopaedic sites mentioned above and also:

Joseph Zarett, LPT

520 S. 19th St.

Philadelphia, PA , 19146

Phone: 215-731-1449

Rehab Specialists?

If you are in a sport or activity that requires a specialized knowledge and care, I would recommend doing some research in your area to find a physical therapist that best fits your needs. Often this can be accomplished by contacting local professional or collegiate teams to see who cares for their athletes. For dancers, it is best to contact some of the local professional dance companies or schools. Your personal physician or orthopaedic surgeon can also help steer you in the right direction.

Missing Ingredients

Time after time I have found that physical therapy and rehabilitation is usually the missing ingredient on the road to full recovery and peak performance after an injury or ailment strikes. Don’t let this happen to you. See a physical therapist or athletic trainer and maximize your recovery

Incomplete Rehab Syndrime

Quite often after an injury or surgery, athletes and active individuals do not return to their preinjury or presurgical level of functioning. In my experience, this is not because the injury has not healed, or that the surgery was not done properly but usually because the athlete has not maximized their rehabilitation effort. This is so common that we call it “Incomplete Rehabilitation Syndrome”. What is usually needed is a good course of physical therapy and rehabilitation and should include not only the injured or recovering body part but also a close look at the entire body to assure that other areas have not gotten into difficulty during the down time (or perhaps were not up to par even prior to the injury). For example, after a serious ankle sprain or knee injury the athlete may have also gotten out of shape from a cardiovascular and strength standpoint. Or after certain knee injuries, weakness can be identified in the pelvis, hip and calf area. Those of us who work with professional and Olympic caliber athletes know that there are creative ways to safely keep an athletes fit while their injury heals.
