Though it’s meant to be a time of rest and relaxation, taking time off from training to recover from a sports-related injury is difficult for many athletes.
Sitting and waiting for your body to heal can feel like an endless endeavor, especially if your doctor isn’t giving you regular updates on how the recovery is proceeding. Thankfully, many people with sports injuries can take an active role in their recovery through physical therapy.
During physical therapy in Santa Clarita at Valencia Sports Medicine, you will work with a qualified physical therapist who will:
- Design a customized treatment plan for you
- Provide updates on your recovery progress throughout the rehabilitation
- Start strengthening the bones and muscles that were injured

How Often Will I Need Physical Therapy?
A professional at Valencia Sports Medicine will work with you to determine the frequency of physical therapy that is necessary for you. The average patient will most likely need to visit our facility for physical therapy between 1 and 3 times a week. The exact timeline will depend on the health of the patient and the severity of their condition.
How Long Does Physical Therapy Treatment Last?
The duration of physical therapy treatment can vary widely depending on the nature and severity of the condition, as well as individual factors. Some patients may see improvement within a few sessions, while others may require weeks or months of treatment. Your Santa Clarita physical therapist at Valencia Sports Medicine will provide a personalized treatment plan and can give you an estimated timeline based on your specific situation.
What Should I Do In Between Physical Therapy Sessions To Help With Pain?
It is important that you address any pain that may occur in between physical therapy sessions. Apply ice to any area of the body that is inflamed. It is also a good idea to keep yourself hydrated. Feel free to inform one of our specialists at Valencia Sports Medicine if pain persists.
