Sports Physical Therapy
Sports medicine involves a comprehensive team of health care professionals including physicians, exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, biomechanists, nutritionists, and physical therapists.
Sports physical therapy at ProRehab emphasizes the prevention, identification, assessment, minimization, and correction of pain and disability associated with athletic injuries. The goal of treatment is to maximize participation and performance.
A ProRehab physical therapist may use a variety of the following interventions to prevent and treat sports related injuries, including but not limited to:
- Pre-participation screening
- Cardiovascular, resistance, endurance and neuromuscular re-education exercise programs
- Taping and bracing
- Sports specific ergonomic and training regimens
- Manual physical therapy
- Orthopaedic physical therapy
In addition to prevention and recovery, the road to maximum performance includes a focus on improving speed, agility, explosiveness, balance and coordination.
ProRehab is also home to Kentucky’s only Sportsmetrics™ certified physical therapist, Dr. Patrick Myers. Sportsmetrics™ is the first and largest ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes. Developed by Dr. Frank Noyes and a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, Sportsmetrics™ is not just another plyometric training program – it reduces the athlete’s risk of injury AND enhances competitive athletic performance.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say
After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
Wonderful staff, very helpful, competent and professional. They listen to what I say and are working with me to meet my goal.
Amazing service. They have gone out of their way to call and follow up with me while doing my at-home exercises. Highly recommend.
My husband was skeptical of my choice to use physical therapy to treat my back pain instead of medications. After seeing my results from working with the ProRehab team, my husband is a believer now too.
I couldn’t have wished for a better place to go for my knee replacement therapy! They know what they are doing to get you back in the swing of things so you can go on with your life!
