Athletes face all sorts of challenges on a daily basis.

Making your movements matter is vital for next level success and injury prevention. Our specialists help you train your body in the off-season to:
reduce your risk of injury

all to build you towards peak performance for the start of the season.
Here are a few guidelines to get you started. These are for information purposes only. Always, consult a medical professional for specific and personalized care planning.
Physical Therapy and Athletic Training
Our certified and licensed staff understands the demands that are placed on athletes to be healthy all year round. Being an athlete is a lifestyle, not just something that happens when the season begins. We help athletes train through the year with specific periodization for strength and conditioning, agility, injury prevention, recovery from injury or surgery, and safe return-to-sport practices.
Physical Therapy and Athletic Training: Our fully licensed staff provides one-on-one, customized therapeutic exercise sessions to help you recover from injury and improve your awareness to reduce risk of re-injury.
Performance Services: We help athletes evaluate their performance and body mechanics to aid in reducing injury risk and to rehabilitate following an injury. We introduce strength and conditioning, as well as sport-specific training, through the kinetic chain, to educate the athlete as to why each body part is important to their individual sport.
So, whether you are new to the world of athletics or a seasoned athlete, see what the team at South Texas Bone & Joint can do for you.

It is vital for athletes, parents and anyone working around athletes to understand the importance and affects of a concussion, also known as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The CDC’s "Heads Up" program has provided excellent resources for recognition and training to aid athletes affected by a concussion.
Our Board-Certified staff is on the sidelines as a first point of contact for athletes who might have suffered a concussion. Getting your student athlete timely assistance is vital for their recovery. The team at South Texas Bone & Joint is trained on recognizing signs and symptoms of a concussion, as well as management with post-injury recovery.
