Sports Therapy

Sports Therapy is a great passion of the staff at Trinity Wellness Center. Many of our staff members have competed or worked with teams and athletes at some of the highest level in sports. Luke Buffum, the owner is a member of the NCSU Sports Medicine staff and tries to utilize his experiences to make Trinity the best provider for you returning to sport. Our core philosophy is that you should leave Trinity as an athlete who has not only overcome an injury but returns to your sport with better strength, stability, mobility, and balance than you had before your injury. We work hard to identify imbalances or improper training patterns so that you return with a substantially decreased risk for future injury. We look to tailor your rehab to include sport-specific exercises and try to utilize only the latest surgical protocols that are used at the highest levels of sport. Partnerships with NCSU Sportsmedicine, Raleigh School of Gymnastics, Sonshine Gymnastics and Triangle Volleyball allow for onsite services provided by our staff for return to play decisions coordinated with each athlete's coach.

Prior to discharge from our care, we look to use tests such as the Functional Movement Screen or other specific joint/motion tests to make sure we utilize objective data to base your return to sport on. This should minimize the risk of reinjury and avoid compensation of other joints that will predispose you to other injuries.
