What is Athletic or Sports Physical Therapy


Sports-specific therapy is advanced physical therapy that is targeted to a particular individual for a specific sport to improve their mobility, strength, and/or pain. Dr. Jennifer Stasko provides general orthopedic and sports rehabilitation services to patients of all ages and all fitness levels. Her background of being a collegiate athlete herself allows her to rehabilitate athletes more effectively and more efficiently. She continues to be active in her community and enjoys working in the advanced sports physical therapy Durham NC setting.  Dr. Jennifer Stasko can also perform Functional Movement Screens (FMS) to assess for any remaining asymmetries to optimize your biomechanics for your sport prior to discharge from physical therapy or returning back to athletics.
