Overlook Medical Center’s Physical Therapy Department provides several injury prevention services, including:
- Comprehensive injury prevention – Applies research-based injury prevention treatments to patients at risk for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, hamstring and groin injuries, and ankle sprains.
- Functional movement screen (FMS) – Accurately identifies a patient’s injury risks and helps physical therapists create customized, preventative exercise plans. Our therapists, certified in both FMS and Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) can evaluate and develop a corrective, injury prevention plan for any individual, team or organization.
- Kinesio Taping® – Provides support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting range of motion. Our physical therapists are certified in this technique.
- Prehab pre-joint replacement therapy program – Available to both individuals and groups, this therapy optimizes recovery by mentally and physically preparing patients for post-operation rehabilitation. Prehab is typically begun six weeks before surgery.
