TOA Franklin - Sports Performance Center
In the linked video, Dr. J. Bartley McGehee, III, covers some use cases for the sports performance center in Franklin, TN, and gives us a brief overview of what sports medicine is and how it can help athletes.
As stated by Dr. McGehee, Sports Medicine is a branch of Orthopedics that deals with active patients, whether attempting to overcome an injury derived from team sports or one incurred through a typical gym visit or other athletic activity. Sports medicine focuses on physical fitness and the treatment and prevention of sports and exercise-related injuries. Sports medicine is not just for professional athletes but can provide benefits to average, everyday people who have suffered an athletic injury.
Many people face different types of injuries that cause them to need orthopedic treatment ranging from overuse injuries to acute injuries. Many patients first come into our clinics after facing an injury, and we analyze their damage and create a tailored plan of treatment that can remedy their issue. Treatment may involve rehabilitation, physical therapy, medications, and in some instances, surgery. It all depends on the specific injury and scope of recovery determined to help our patient. Our physical therapists work with patients to recover their strength, range of motion, and flexibility back into an area where they discover a rejuvenated quality of life that allows them to move forward in life pain-free.
Our Franklin, TN location offers us the ability to provide those injured and in need of care a more specialized, tailored regimen to get them back on their feet and back to doing what they love. Beyond basic physical therapy, this facility is outfitted with the equipment and dedicated, knowledgeable personnel needed to help our patients thrive in their activity of choice. Through practicing functional exercises, our Franklin, TN location helps people prepare for the obstacles they will need to overcome post-recovery.
