Young Hockey Goalie Goes Through Post-Op Rehabilitation for Hips
Ryan, a 16-year-old high school hockey goalie, had a history of hip pain while playing hockey.
After learning from doctors that he suffered from hip impingement and a labral tear, Ryan underwent arthroscopic surgery. After the surgery Ryan was using crutches, and suffered pain, limited strength and poor range of motion.
Ryan was referred to Accelerated Sports Therapy & Fitness for his post-operative rehabilitation.
At accelerated, Ryan completed the following treatments as part of his rehabilitation:
Modalities for swelling and pain control
Gentle stretching for improved range of motion
Manual therapy for soft tissue restrictions
Weight bearing and gait drills
Progressive strengthening and neuromuscular control for hip/core musculature
Hockey specific skating and goalie exercises
On-ice progression of skating and goalie drills
Upon completion of his treatment, Ryan was able to fully return to hockey as the starting goalie.
