Extensive Skills and Knowledge
Our therapists have skills and knowledge that cover the whole spectrum of sports physical therapy needs. Our sports physical therapists are specialists in age-specific concerns that can arise in young athletes or following joint replacement in older individuals. We have specialists who focus on activity-specific populations, including baseball pitchers, dancers, runners, throwers, and tennis players. In addition, we have staff trained in advanced physical therapy treatments such as concussion treatment, aquatic therapy, and dry needling.
Certified and Licensed Athletic Trainers
Credentialing ensures your physical therapist has the advanced skills needed to treat your injury. While all of our physical therapists are licensed physical therapists, 60 percent of our staff are also certified and licensed athletic trainers.
Board-Certified in Sports Physical Therapy
Eighty percent of our eligible staff members are board-certified by the American Physical Therapy Association in sports physical therapy.
Our facilities contain the most advanced equipment, and our physical therapists are experts in the latest techniques and tools.
Our physical therapists are on the field and in the training rooms at high schools and colleges, youth soccer leagues, and gymnastic programs throughout the region. When an injury occurs, we provide care on-site and arrange for care at a nearby Duke clinic.
We also offer walk-in orthopedic urgent care seven days a week in Durham, Apex, and Wake Forest.
Research conducted on-site at Duke Sports Medicine and throughout Duke assists us in being able to provide the best possible care.
