High-performance athletic rehabilitation

At Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center, our sports medicine team of occupational therapists, athletic trainers and performance specialists are dedicated to returning active patients to play.

We aim to help safely transition athletes from their post-surgical physical therapy to a higher-intensity regimen that will prepare them to return to competition.

Our high-performance athletic rehab program includes:

  • Individual treatment plans that are maintained and monitored by our physical therapists
  • Sport-specific techniques
  • Intense and competitive environment

Our research team works closely with the rehabilitation team to select or design effective treatment plans for specific diagnoses. Our care is always evolving and we are committed to providing you with the best techniques.
