The Sports Plus Program is offered through the SOMC Outpatient Rehabalitation Services Department. This program features state-of-the-art equipment such as our new 1800 square foot area of astro turf and the new Biodex System 3 unit. Injury-specific rehabilitation protocols are used to maximize performance gains and minimize length of recovery. Slow motion video analysis may be utilized to further assess subtle variations in movement patterns. The purpose of the Sports Plus program is to help the athlete return to competitive sports faster and at a higher level of performance than with traditional rehab programs.
See our Aquatic Therapy section for more information on pre- and post-surgical rehabilitation.
