Martial Arts Rehab
Athletes of the highest levels are found in this sport. Physical and mental stamina are regularly put to the test - and injuries can be commonplace. That's why physical therapy is such a vital link to your ongoing training. Whether you are a professional martial artist or simply trying to stay in shape, Yoshimoto Physical Therapy is the place to go when you are injured.
The physical requirements of martial arts are very demanding on the body of both the amateur and professional martial artist. Martial artists suffer from a variety of injuries including muscle and tendon strains, ligament sprains, spinal and joint misalignments, and hyperextension injuries of the joints.
We will rebuild your body from injury and successfully return you to practice and competition in a timely manner.
The therapists at Yoshimoto Physical Therapy have extensive backgrounds in a variety of martial arts. We understand the physical and mental demands needed in various martial art disciplines, and we understand what is required to return an injured warrior back to battle.
We provide a hands-on approach to your wellness. You may receive joint mobilization and manipulation of your extremities and spine, soft tissue mobilization, deep tissue and sport massages, and an exercise routine to rebuild your musculoskeletal system specific to your martial art.
