What is a Physical Therapist?

Physical therapists are experts trained in determining the causes of sports-related and orthopaedic injuries. They address these issues so the patient is able to return to sport as quickly and as safely as possible.

Our Unique Approach

Children’s physical therapists are experts in treating young athletes. Because we only work with kids, we recognize when they are ready to progress to the next level of treatment and know how to motivate them.

Many of our physical therapists have advanced certifications.

  • Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (O.C.S.): These physical therapists have advanced certification through the American Physical Therapy Association and have demonstrated specialized knowledge, skill and experience in orthopaedic care.
  • Strength and Conditioning Specialists (C.S.C.S.): These physical therapists are certified in the development and implementation of strength and conditioning programs for specific sports.
  • Sports Certified Specialist (S.C.S.): These physical therapists have advanced certification through the American Physical Therapy Association and are considered experts in athletic injury management, including acute care, treatment and rehabilitation, prevention and education.

We use special equipment and technology—like Dartfish video motion analysis—to find and correct sports techniques that may contribute to injuries or affect performance. All of our physical therapy clinics feature sport-specific resources like ballet barres, dance floors and mirrors, gymnastics mats, throwing nets, treadmills and more. We manage more than 47,000 patient visits each year, giving our therapists the experience needed to handle a wide array of athletes, from adolescent swimmers to high school football players.

Our physical therapists treat athletes at 14 convenient locations throughout metro Atlanta. If you think your child needs sports physical therapy, contact your pediatrician for a referral.
