Sports medicine: Our approach
At Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, we take a creative approach to sports therapy. Our rehab team—comprised of rehabilitation doctors, physical therapists, board certified sports medicine specialists and strength & conditioning specialists—looks at the whole body so as not to just stop the pain, but address the underlying source of injury.

Sports therapy exercises may include:
- High level balance exercises
- Plyometric training
- High intensity interval training, power, agility, flexibility and speed activities
We treat patients of every skill level—from youth baseball players to amateur golfers to professional football players—and see every type of sports injury. For every patient, our goal is help them make a full recovery and prevent future instances of injury. Additionally, Bryn Mawr Rehab offers our medical expertise to both amateur and competitive athletes looking for injury prevention and performance tips and training.
