Sports Medicine & Sports Related Injuries


At Carolina Physical Therapy, sports medicine is a passion of ours. Our experienced physical therapists and athletic trainers will help you recover from any sports-related injuries. Whether you’re a “weekend warrior”,  a college student, or a professional athlete, we will work with you to provide you with the best program to get you back on the field.

Torn ACLs, rotator cuff/labral injuries, sprained ankles, concussions, and pulled hamstrings are just a few of the many common sports-related injuries that our sports medicine specialists treat every day. Whether you’ve experienced a simple strain or undergone a complicated surgical repair, we custom-tailor our programs to meet your specific needs. We pair exercises catered to your specific needs with therapy to reduce acute pain and swelling post-exercise, aiding in the recovery of full range of motion and strength.

We utilize sports medicine tape, called kinesio tape, as seen in the Olympics, to reduce stress on injured tissue. Kinesio tape can assist in obtaining support and relief when needed. We also provide activities that are done both in our clinic and at home to improve your performance in your specific sport.



Treating sports related concussions is a meticulous and personalized process. Our approach begins with a comprehensive evaluation to assess the severity of the concussion and its impact on cognitive and physical functions. We prioritize rest and gradual reintegration into activities to allow the brain to heal properly. Our specialized team utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, combining physical therapy techniques, cognitive exercises, and targeted rehabilitation protocols tailored to each individual’s unique symptoms and needs. Throughout the recovery journey, we closely monitor progress, ensuring a safe return to sports or daily activities while prioritizing the overall well-being and long-term health of our patients.

Our staff has more than 25 years of experience in working with athletes of all ages and skill levels and understands what is at stake for them. It is our personal attention, our state-of-the-art facilities, and the commitment we make to each one of our patients that make the difference. Schedule your appointment today.
