PRA has joined the STOP Sports Injuries campaign sponsored by the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine which is supported by the Sports Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. As a collaborating organization Professional Rehab Associates is proud to share media from the campaign which can be found by clicking on the attached PDF files. This information will also be shared in events around the community and within our clinic.
Our first formal event will be held at the Radford Recreation Center on April 10, 2013 at 7PM. We will be promoting injury risk reduction strategies for Radford Parks and Recreation Department Baseball and Softball participants.
Overuse injuries can be very painful and can limit how an athlete plays, if they are even able to play at all. Proper training and proper form and mechanics can significantly reduce the risk of injury. Reducing pitching and throwing volume and encouraging rest can help manage players’ symptoms.
