Olympic level athletes train, sacrifice and push for years to reach elite status. Even with athletic trainers, coaches and years of experience, injuries can still happen. An Olympic-level competitor can turn into a spectator with just one wrong move.

How do you know when your injury is serious and requires a visit to a physical therapist? When faced with the onset of any ache or pain, most people take a few days off from the rigorous activity that brought on the injury. Patients are advised to think of the RICE formula that stands for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation to speed up healing.
Doctor of Physical Therapy Jeff Sadaya and the team at Cross Bay Physical Therapy are excited to have the opportunity to educate our local senior community. The ability to stand and walk upright on two legs requires a great amount of balance. Older people typically experience loss of balance and are at a greater risk for falling.
