Improving Access to Healthcare Services for Student Athletes

Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy is proud to work with the Southwest Sports Wellness Foundation (SWSWF) to provide services to high school athletes throughout the area.

SWSWF was founded in 2010 with the goal of assisting under-served areas of the Chula Vista community. It offers a variety of services to the local community by partnering with doctors, physical therapists, and other professionals to improve access to healthcare services for student athletes.

Together with MOPT and other professionals throughout the area, SWSWF has screened, treated, and trained hundreds of athletes, while providing rehabilitation and guidance that would otherwise not be available to members of the community.

Helping Our Community

Through our partnership with SWSWF, MOPT is able to host injury clinics at our Eastlake office every Saturday morning during the football season. Services are provided at no cost to students of the Sweetwater Union High School District, enabling them to get quick, affordable access to quality healthcare.

Assessments are performed by an athletic trainer, physical therapist, and/or a physician with the goal of diagnosing and treating athletes so they can return to the field safely and in a timely manner.

In addition, annual pre-participation sports screening assessments and exams (PPE) are offered at a low cost to athletes in the Sweetwater Union High School District. With this exam, students are able to participate in sports and co-curricular activities throughout the school year.
Learn more about our partnership with the Southwest Sports Wellness Foundation, including specific PPE and injury clinic appointment times, by calling one of our offices today.

"The turning point came a few weeks after I started seeing physical therapist Curtis Hill at Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapy. Curtis was always pushing me to the limit and I came back stronger than ever."

Orthopedic physical therapy is both a science and an art that focuses on improving the function of the human body. Therapeutic techniques can target muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and ligaments, depending on the patient’s unique challenges. It nearly always includes manual, hands-on therapy from a licensed physical or occupational therapist, but a comprehensive approach, like the one offered at MOPT, also includes patient education and individualized therapeutic exercise programs that can be practiced at home. Treatment can also include therapies such as aquatic therapy, acupuncture, and AlterG therapy. When searching for “manual physical therapy near you,” your search starts and ends with MOPT! Allow our licensed physical and occupational therapists to help you improve function, restore flexibility, and enhance your mobility in a friendly and professional patient-centered atmosphere.
