If you’re an athlete or even a weekend warrior, an injury can be devastating. If you don’t receive the proper treatment and therapies, that injury could turn into a lifelong problem. When it comes to safe and quicker recovery, a physical therapy program can get you on the right track to healing.

Sports Med Utah has partnered with D1 Sports (which is an athletic-based training facility that provides athletes of all skill levels with the appropriate training techniques and therapy), to open a Sports Med Utah physical therapy clinic within the campus of the D1 facility in Midvale, Utah. The grand opening will be March 11. The specialists with Sports Med Utah blend high-quality care and therapy with long-term strength training and conditioning to get patients back into the sport of their choice.
