Dynamix Physical Therapy offers incredible sports medicine programs with schools throughout the West Tennessee region. From practice and game day coverage to seeing athletes in one of the Dynamix clinics, the sports medicine team makes sure all athletes are well taken care of on and off the field.
All of our Athletic Trainers (ATCs) cover all sports, including football, basketball, softball, baseball, and other sports teams. Some of the highlights that these trainers focus on include:
Sport-specific rehabilitation When athletes become injured during their sport, Dynamix Physical Therapy ensures that rehabilitation promotes excellence in return to play.
On-site medical coverage for sporting events During sporting events, a sports medicine provider is present for each game. The role of this medical professional is to provide medical care for athletes and those in attendance of the sporting event.
Comprehensive injury management Athletes are monitored before injury, during the injury, and also during the rehabilitation process for return to play.
Communication with athletes, parents, coaches, and physicians Sports medicine professionals are in constant contact regularly with athletes, parents, physicians and coaches.
24 hr on-call access to professional staff Athletic Trainers and Physical Therapists at Dynamix are available 24 hours a day regarding the health of our patients. Parents and coaches are provided with personal phone numbers of the sports medicine team.
Conditioning and nutrition assistance The Dynamix Sports Medicine Team is able to assist coaches with recommendations for conditioning and exercises to prevent injury. Another important role of the sports medicine team is to provide advice regarding nutrition, such as pre-event meals.
Laser performance assessments Members of the Dynamix Sports Medicine team are able to recognize poor mechanics in sport. This assessment of performance can also target areas that could improve the health of our patients.
