Sports Rehabilitation

Get back to your activity faster, safer and better than before
Whether you’re a competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, soreness, pain and injury can quickly derail your efforts to reach your fullest potential. So when sports injuries happen, your goal is to heal quickly, safely, and get back to the top of your game with an eye toward preventing future injuries. That’s our goal, as well, at Move Strong Physical Therapy. As experts in movement, physical therapists serve as your first line of care when you experience pain, discomfort or injury while training or competing in your sport. A thorough evaluation from a physical therapist will determine what caused your injury, setting an optimal course for treatment, healing, prevention, and performance enhancement.

Commonly Treated Conditions

  • Sprains and strains
  • Muscle pain
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Dislocations and fractures
  • Knee injuries

A physical therapist will work to restore you to the competitive and fitness level you enjoyed prior to your injury, and teach you how to prevent the injury from reoccurring. Contact us to schedule a thorough assessment to determine the source of your injury, treatment options, and what you can do to prevent future issues.

Dear Patrons of Move Strong, 

Our physical location continues to be closed as the MJCC, the community center in which Move Strong is located, is closed. At this time, there is not an expected date for reopening, as they are listening to guidance from state and local authorities. They will not open as long as the “Stay Home” recommendation for Oregon is still in effect.

We are still trying to serve our patients the best we can by posting home strengthening videos on our website, www.movestrongpt.com  and on our Facebook page to keep people active while at home. Please follow us at @movestrongpt 

Remote visits (e-visits or telehealth) are also available to our established patients. At this time, United Health Care, Moda, Regence Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, Pacific Source and Medicare will cover remote visits by physical therapists. 

During a remote visit a therapist will use video chat to look at your movement, correct form if needed,  progress exercises and self help techniques, and provide patient education. Remote visits are available for our usual self pay rate if your insurance does not cover them. Please call us if you would like to schedule a remote visit with one of our therapists.

Please stay up to date with the developing situation by following the Oregon Health Authority locally or the CDC at https://www.oregon.gov/oha/pages/index.aspx and https://www.cdc.gov/ respectively.

Thank you for your patience during this stressful time. If you have questions for your therapist, feel free to email them directly. Please keep in mind we are all working remotely.

 

Be well, 

Ariel Z Salzman, DPT, OCS, CMPT
