Sports injuries tend to be serious because of the amount of force and energy exerted at the time of impact. Since athletes are used to feeling aches, pains and other discomforts, they often let their injuries go untreated for longer than they should. This is why it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible following an injury.
The goal of the Rehabilitation Network of North Shore-LIJ Health System is to help you find pain relief and get moving again after an accident, illness, injury or surgery. We’re your partner in a safe, healthy, more rapid recovery.
