After a sports injury or corrective surgery, sports physical therapists and kinesiologists at The Institute develop individualized recovery programs to address a host of orthopedic problems including those affecting the shoulder, back, neck, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle or foot.

- McKenzie method to reduce pain and restore function
- Aquatic therapy
- Isokinetic therapy
- Rehab for knee ligament reconstruction
- Postoperative therapy for total joint replacement
- Sport-specific rehab and performance improvement
