Sports Medicine

Sports medicine involves a comprehensive team of healthcare professionals trained in a variety of backgrounds to include physicians, exercise physiologists, athletic trainers, biomechanists, nutritionists, and physical therapists. Our team emphasizes the prevention, identification, assessment, minimization, and correction of pain and disability associated with injuries sustained in athletic endeavors and problems that affect sports performance. 

The goal of treatment is to maximize participation and performance, so you can get back to the activities you love with confidence.

Your physical therapist can use a variety of interventions to prevent and treat sports-related injuries, which include, but are not limited to, video motion analysis to improve running and sports performance and reduce injuries, pre-participation screening, cardiovascular, resistance, endurance, and neuromuscular re-education exercise programs, taping and bracing, sports specific ergonomic and training regimens, manual physical therapy, and orthopaedic physical therapy. 

Can you benefit from physical therapy?

If your goal is to improve your performance while reducing your chance of injury, our sports physical therapy team can help you achieve your goals. Regardless of your sport, we can help you get to the top of your game!

At Colorado In Motion, we offer programs to people of all ages and fitness levels. From pre-participation screening, individualized, one-on-one training or rehabilitation, or performing a biomechanical analysis of your running technique or golf swing, we can meet the needs of any individual or group trying to improve their fitness level or athletic performance. 

In addition to working with recreational and more serious athletes, Dr. Flynn and Dr. Gebhardt are experienced marathon and ultra-marathon competitors who understand the demands of high-intensity training.

I am 100% cured. No more numbness in my fingers. I don’t even need to wear my brace at night anymore. Your recommended equipment and posture changes did the trick. Thanks so much!

I was referred to CIM for some calf and Achilles issues a few months after a bad strain. I had the pleasure of working with Derek Haverley to resolve it.

I worked with John Zapanta this fall for joint pain and had terrific results. I was often amazed with the progress made. John’s personality, talent and enthusiasm regarding my recovery made the process more enjoyable than I would have thought possible. I was impressed that he often would follow up with an e-mail with photos…

I was referred to Colorado Physical Therapy Specialists and saw John. He was very helpful in easing the pain in my shoulder and gave me exercises to do at home in short increments of time that would fit into my schedule, but would still accomplish the goal. He will listen to any concerns, is very…
