FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Naperville, IL) Over 2.6 million children under the age of 19 are seen in emergency departments around the nation each year for injuries related to sports and recreation. These shocking statistics don’t even account for those over the age of 19 suffering the same injuries. According to the CDC, the number of child-related sports injuries have increased five-fold in the past 10 years.
These injuries are leading to more and more complications and serious injuries later in life. In an effort to combat these long-lasting injuries that often take kids out of the game at an early age, Victory Rehab has launched a campaign to treat and help prevent further injuries. While the treatments offered work for kids, they are also ideal for adult athletes suffering from some of the most common sports-related injuries.
According to Dr. Thomas Campbell, “After an injury, patients need to schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible. The faster we can begin treating the injury and rehabilitating the affected muscle, the better equipped we will be to help prevent further injuries in the future.”
With the number of sports injuries increasing annually, the number of people – both adults and children – seeking physical therapy are increasing. Between 2000 and 2008 the numbers jumped from 1.2 million seeking these services around the nation daily to 1.6 million. In 2016, the numbers had jumped again by approximately 40 percent.
“If you were to visit our website at victoryrehab.com, you would quickly discover that our rehabilitation services are unique from other providers in the area,” continued Dr. Campbell. “When you put your care in our hands, we consider you part of the Victory family. Our goal is to put you on the path to recovery and help you get back to the activity you love while helping you avoid additional injuries down the road.”
While muscle strains, sprains, and other issues that require rehabilitation can occur at any time, while participating in virtually any activity, athletes tend to be the largest group of patients seen by physical therapists to date. The new efforts by are uniquely designed to help get patients back on the field and avoid the large number of re-injuries that occur among recreational, youth and professional athletes.
Athletes who want to quickly heal from existing injuries, while working to strengthen muscles to prevent future injuries have to be dedicated to a rehabilitation program. The latest efforts introduced to Naperville athletes can help them remain on the field and avoid being part of the growing statistics related to sports injuries.
