Sport Physical Therapy and Athletic Training

One unfortunate result of athletics involves injury to its participants. Research tells us the most common injuries that occur in athletic contests involve the ankle, knee and shoulder. We recognize the impact that injuries can play on athletes of all ages, so safe return to participation is our primary goal.

The St. Alexius Human Performance Center provides cutting edge Physical Therapy and Athletic Training services dedicated to serving the athletic participants of central North Dakota. Our Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers specialize in sports injury rehabilitation, biomechanical analysis, athletic injury prevention and sports medicine coverage.

Physical Therapy and Athletic Training intervention emphasizes evidence based practice to guide treatment protocol through the deliverance of therapeutic modalities, manual therapy technique, exercise and education to ensure the most rapid recovery possible. Some of the cutting edge technological advances that we use to rehabilitate and train athletes functionally include the Biodex Isokinetics, high speed treadmills and force plate technology, such as the 3PQ.

Our team of Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers have the opportunity to watch an athlete's injury progress on a day-to-day basis and are dedicated to returning the region's athletes to complete functional activity.

Some of our Athletic Training services include onsite practice coverage two to three days per week which include injury screening, taping, bracing, and return to sport planning between physician, athlete, coach, parents and the athletic trainer. In addition, the athletic training services provide sports medicine coverage for varsity sporting events which provides on-field assessment and management of all injuries occurring in the competition. Specific work has been done with a local high school to implement the IMPACT program for concussion management. Our Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers pride themselves on being personable, professional and available to all athletes participating in sports.
