Sports and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

The Vail-Summit Physical Therapy sports and orthopaedic therapy specialists are here to help you recover from sports-related injuries and embark on your orthopaedic recovery with confidence. Sports and orthopaedic therapy is a personalized roadmap to recovery after an injury or surgery, which the therapists at VSPT tailor to your unique needs and return-to-activity goals. 

When Would I Need Sports and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation?

Sports and orthopaedic rehabilitation isn’t just for athletes. Any injury or condition that affects the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, tissue, and cartilage) can benefit from this type of program. This includes:


  • Joint Injuries: Herniated disks, knee pain, or shoulder dislocations

  • Ligament Injuries: ACL tears, meniscus tears, or rotator cuff injuries

  • Tendonitis 

  • Arthritis 

  • Athletic Injuries: Plantar fasciitis, runner’s near, or swimmer’s shoulder


Whether you're a weekend warrior, seasoned pro, or average Joe, our rehabilitation programs are crafted to help you achieve optimal results and make a triumphant return to the activities you're passionate about.


Benefits of Sports and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Sports and orthopaedic rehabilitation has a wide variety of benefits. These include:


  • Regaining strength

  • Improving flexibility

  • Increasing endurance

  • Reducing pain

  • Enhancing balance


For patients with conditions that limit their ability to perform everyday activities, orthopedic rehabilitation is one of the most effective ways to restore fuction. Athletes with injuries benefit from sports rehabilitation to treat sports-related injuries, regain strength, and return to spots at a high level while preventing reinjury.

VSPT treated me for chronic navicular tendinopathy, which was very painful. This was from a long term cycling injury. My therapist gave me a great exercise plan and treated me with dry needling. The dry needling really helped loosen up my tendon, and I am pain free now and have returned to all activities.
