Are You Skeptical About Sports Physical Therapy?

The last time you tried physical therapy, it was a waste of your time. You were doing exercises and stretches that felt way too easy and nothing truly got to the root of your problem.

You were given a handout of standard exercises and an ice pack. They offered you some resistance bands, which you thought might be a  joke.

Even with your injury, you’re still able to outperform the average Joe. Your time is valuable and you’re not interested in wasting any of it.

You’re thinking this sports physical therapy might be different but you’re hesitant, and we totally understand.

Sports Physical Therapy Tailored to You

Physical therapy (PT) has a poor reputation for being a place for cookie cutter exercises, ice, heat, TENS machines, and that’s about it. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get a ridiculously outdated exercise sheet of paper with basic movements you could do anywhere. 

Although there was a time when PT was primarily hands-off, we’ve come a long way in the field and now have decades of research to support a much improved rehabilitation experience.

Your ankle injury doesn’t just need “calf pumps”. And there are literally thousands of exercises to choose from. What do you actually need?

To be heard, for your provider to learn exactly how your injury occurred, and understand your specific goals.

A doctor who will critically think through your injury instead of generalizing a treatment plan for you.

A thorough explanation of what’s going on so you can properly treat it.

A treatment plan specific to you as a whole athlete, tailored to get you back to doing what you want.

Exercises to treat your exact injury, not just a bandage that will have you back in the clinic in a few short months.

At Mobility-Doc, our patients live active lifestyles. They either come to the clinic in-person or join our virtual community, MD Online, and do their exercises at home in their own gym. 

Either way, we treat sports medicine a bit differently here. No one gets a standard plan of care. Every single client we see as different and deserves customized care, which is exactly what we provide.

We will shift your perspective around sports medicine physical therapy and show you how impactful and successful you can be with the right doctors on your team.

Sports Physical Therapy Experts On a Mission

Here at Mobility-Doc, we took frustration and used it to fuel our passion for helping injured athletes. We saw firsthand how sports medicine physical therapy was failing active people daily.

We’re committed to changing the lazy culture in physical therapy and tackling athletic injuries head-on. We provide up-to-date evidence-based treatments and modalities proven to get you competing again as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Our unconventional approach is what sets us apart and is why active people from The Poconos, The Lehigh Valley, and virtually around the world know to come to us when they need help.

"I am a two-time Olympian and the American record holder in the hammer throw. In my six years as a professional athlete, I have had the privilege of working with many athletic trainers and chiropractors, and I can honestly say that Dr. John Giacalone is the best I have worked with. John works diligently to create treatment plans that accommodate my needs and address my issues. He is the first trainer I have worked with who has effectively diagnosed and treated injuries remotely through phone calls and video chats. John has also helped create a top-notch warmup routine that helps me feel prepared for training and competitions while also reducing the risk of injury. He is always open to feedback, and it is clear that his primary concern is the well-being of his patients. On top of his clinical abilities, he is a great person and it has been an absolute pleasure working with him."

We are zooming out to look at you, the entire person, not just your injured body part. Every part of your body is interconnected. We’re dedicated to finding the root cause of your current limitations and helping you learn how to move your body in the best ways to keep you healthy and strong for decades to come.

You’re More Than Just A Number When You Come to Mobility-Doc

When you decide to address your injury with Mobility-Doc, we are by your side the whole way through the healing process. Your experience here will not be anything like a traditional physical therapy clinic.

In the clinic, our first visit with you can last an hour or more so you can be heard. We want to know why you’re seeking sports physical therapy, how your injury occurred, and ultimately what your goals are so we can best assist you in reaching them.

You’ll leave your initial consultation knowing exactly what’s going on and why you’re having pain or limited performance. We conduct extensive diagnostic testing and record how your body responds to a host of range of motion, strength, and functional movement tests.

Then, we take our time to fully explain your diagnosis and resolve any confusion so you leave the clinic feeling confident about overcoming your injury.

Your in-clinic visits may be anywhere from 2-3 times a week to once or twice a month. We aren’t wasting your time — we spend your visits focused on either the hands-on treatments you can’t do at home, or making sure you’re crystal clear about your specific exercise form and technique.

We store all of your exercises in our YouTube library as well. Once we make sure you’re moving correctly, you’re sent home with video explanations so you don’t forget your home exercise program.

You will usually have about 30 minutes of hands-on time with your doctor, and the remainder of your appointment will be spent on custom exercises, using certain specialized equipment, or utilizing our recovery center.

You can always join our virtual community, MD Online, to continue your progress from home and ensure you successfully heal.

If you’re not local, no need to worry. We will do your initial consultation through our video platform and help you determine which MD Online program is the best fit for you. We have rehab programs specific to certain injuries we treat over and over again. We also create custom online programs tailored specifically to your unique situation. Just click “Make an Appointment” below and select “Video Consultation for Sports Med and Orthopedics Patients” when booking your appointment to experience the life-changing benefits of Mobility-Doc from the comfort of your own home.
