Pelham Medical Center Physical Therapy

With more than 50 years of experience, the Pelham Medical Center understands that each patient’s condition and needs are unique. The Physicians and staff at Pelham are committed and work closely together to help each individual reach their maximal potential. There are 6 experienced, licensed and dedicated physical therapists on site.

The physical therapists have specialized training in non-operative and post-operative orthopedic and sports-related care management. Our therapists have completed advanced educational degrees (DPT) and specialized certifications (OCS, SCS, PES, CES, FMS, SFMA, CEAS, and others).

Our staff continues to grow and challenge themselves educationally. The staff and physicians meet monthly to discuss current surgical procedures as well as surgical and non-surgical interventions. Currently, the physical therapy and sports medicine staff in collaboration with the University of South Carolina Upstate, Spartanburg Regional Family Medicine Residency and VCOM, are determining if the functional movement screen can predict injuries in college athletes. Additionally, our physical therapists and athletic trainers collaborate at local high schools and colleges to minimize lost playing time and maximize a safe return to sport.

Research

Can injuries in college athletes be predicted using the Functional Movement Screen and Y-Balance testing?

  • Spartanburg Regional Sports Medicine Program is a part of the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System (SRHS) and is affiliated with multiple athletic programs including University of South Carolina-Upstate (USC-U), Converse College, Spartanburg Methodist College and various area high schools.  Athletic trainers work closely with the student athletes at each of these sites providing acute musculoskeletal care and preventive care in conjunction with the team physicians.
  • At USC-U, there are approximately 240 student athletes spread over 17 sports to include basketball, volleyball, baseball and soccer.  Each student undergoes a routine physical at the beginning of the school year and can be seen for acute events throughout the sports season.  Injury patterns are closely followed by the trainers and mirror similar patterns seen at programs across the country.
