We are happy to provide the following services at our clinic.  Please feel free to ask any of our therapists or staff if you have any questions. You may also contact us prior to your first visit if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. 


Orthopedic Physical Therapy IN KANSAS CITY

Although we put the word “Sports” in our company name when we opened our first physical therapy clinic more than 40 years ago, the vast majority of our patients come from general orthopedic injuries in Kansas City.  We use a team approach to rehabilitate anything from sprained ankles to broken bones, low back to joint replacements, and everything in between. We see a variety of ages and ability levels, and will tailor your treatment to your goals.   With each patient we create an individualized rehab program that may include, aquatic physical therapy, manual therapy (hands-on mobilizations to increase range of motion) and modalities.  Our emphasis throughout rehabilitation will be to engage each patient in functional exercises, so they can return to their activities in daily life.

Aquatic physical therapy IN KANSAS CITY

Sports Rehab is proud to provide aquatic therapy to our patients.  Our pool is located in Building II of the Corporate Medical Plaza in Overland Park.  If the evaluating therapist and physician decide aquatic therapy is appropriate for you as a patient, you will participate in 30 minutes of aquatic therapy in addition to your "land" therapy.  Aquatic therapy has been shown to accelerate the traditional rehab process, including increasing strength, range of motion, and endurance.  Common diagnoses benefiting from aquatic therapy include, but are not limited to, joint replacements, low back pain, muscle strains, and ACL reconstruction.  Please ask any one of our staff members if you have questions regarding aquatic physical therapy. 



Occupational and Hand Therapy

Our goal is to allow each patient to regain the maximum functional use of their hand.  To achieve this goal, our experienced Certified Hand Therapists incorporate individual care with manual therapy, exercises, custom static and dynamic splinting and home exercise programs. Common diagnosis that benefit from Hand Therapy include:

  • Cumulative trauma

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Arthritis

  • Fractures

  • Tendon lacerations

  • Nerve injuries

  • Burns

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Sports Rehab now offers vestibular rehabilitation. We provide treatment for vertigo, dizziness, balance disorders and for post concussion symptoms and management. We use a variety of techniques for your eyes, ears, brain and balance systems to help retrain them to fully alleviate or help reduce your symptoms so that you can return to sport, work and everyday function safely and quickly. Common conditions we are able to treat include BPPV, vestibular hypofunction, Meniere's disease and post-concussion syndrome among others.



Massage Therapy IN KANSAS CITY

We offer rehabilitative massage therapy to current patients and the public in the Kansas City area.  Michael Hill, PTA, LMT, CKTP  has been a nationally licensed massage therapist since 2004 specializing in pain management, sciatica, sports injuries, migraines, and back/neck pain. Massages are scheduled as thirty minute sessions focusing on specific problem areas. Conditions that may benefit from massage include sciatica, general back and neck pain, scar tissue, muscle pain, and more.  For current patients, massage will work in conjunction with your physical therapy treatments for the most optimal outcomes, but you do not have to be a patient at our facility to receive massage therapy.

Kansas city Sports Performance

Sports Rehab specializes in the care and treatment of athletes at every level in the Kansas City area. We will work with the athlete from initial injury through return to play, including strength, endurance, agility, and coordination drills. Our goal is to get the athlete back to their desired level of play as quickly and safely as possible.   




Back Pain

Physical therapy plays a significant role in the return to pain-free activities of daily living following back and neck pain.  We use our progressive functional approach with patients in the Kansas City area who are suffering from both long standing conditions such as a cervical strain, chronic low back pain or herniated disk, as well as more acute conditions such as whip lash.  Whether the patient is suffering from acute pain, chronic irritation, or post operative symptoms, our staff provides individualized rehabilitation emphasizing manual therapy and functional exercises.


worker's compensation

If you've been injured on the job in Kansas City, we are here to help.  After an evaluation and referral from your physician and case manager, we will work with you to get you back to your job as quickly and efficiently as possible.  We work with a variety of worker's compensation insurances and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. 



Pain in your foot, ankle, knee, hip or back may be the result of foot/ankle dysfunction.  Orthotics may decrease symptoms in any one of these areas by supporting the movement of the lower extremity through control of the foot.  Our staff is trained to look at the foot as an important component of the lower extremity rehab.  If an orthotic might assist your return to activity, your therapist will discuss the benefits of orthotics with both you and your physician.  Orthotic fabrication is available in our clinic in Overland Park.  Feel free to ask any of our therapists or staff if you have questions.
