Our physical therapy program can help patients return to their daily activities by focusing treatment on reducing pain and improving gross motor skills. A full evaluation will assess each patient's strength and endurance, and may include gait evaluation, balance assessment, or the need for orthotics, assistive devices or adapted equipment.
Akron General Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy provides a team of board-certified physicians, licensed physical therapists, licensed/certified athletic trainers, excercise physiologists and certified strength and conditioning specialists- the largest sports medicine staff in the area.
We specialize in the treatment of athletes of all ages, levels and sports. We understand that the rehabilitation of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injuries is only part of the recovery process. We know the special concerns of athletes and the importance of addressing the emotional and mental aspects of recovery, as well as the injury itself.
We also help arthritic patients function better and accident victims mend and strengthen injured bones, joints and muscles. Our special programs for the back and foot emphasize injury prevention and feature our team treatment approach.
We offer convenient locations in West Akron, Stow, Green, Tallmadge and Mogodore. See a full list of our locations.
