Our group classes are uniquely designed program to provide athletes the ability to boost his or her fitness and health based upon the demands of specific sports or after sustaining an injury. This program has two distinct themes-sports specific and injury based.

 

The injury Based Theme

This provides vital assistance in bridging the gap between rehab and the athlete returning to sport. Upon discharge from physical therapy or medical care, our sports physical therapist will perform an individual assessment identifying factors to determine possible impairments that will prevent a safe return to sports. After the assessment, athletes are placed in a program based on their specific individual needs.

Injury based them options:

[accordion autoclose=false openfirst=false clicktoclose=true tag=div][accordion-item title=”Sports Ready Lower Extremity”]Sports Ready lower extremity is a uniquely designed program to provide athletes the ability to boost his or her fitness and health after sustaining an injury to the lower extremity. This program provides vital assistance in bridging the gap between rehab and the athlete returning to sport. Upon discharge from physical therapy or medical care our sports physical therapist will perform an individual assessment identifying factors to determine possible impairments that will prevent a safe return to sports. Our Sports Ready assessments combine the latest research and experience to recognize predisposing factors that can lead to injury such as deconditioning, muscle imbalance, fear/ anxiety and poor movement patterns with sports specific movements. After the assessment, athletes are placed in a safe but intense program designed to address the specific needs found during the assessment (I.e strength deficits, deconditioning, loss of range of motion/ flexibility). However, if an athlete passes the initial assessment without any impairments they will be cleared to participate in sports or can participate in our sports performance class.

Athletes, during the Sports Ready class, will perform plyometric exercises, sprinting, cutting and other sports specific activities under the close supervision of a physical therapist. Upon completion of the monthly class,each athlete will undergo another assessment to observe improvement and determine if the athlete is safe to return to sports or our sports performance class.

This class is ideal for athletes after:

  • ACL, meniscus, or any knee surgery

However, an athlete’s recovery and return to sport can be more complicated. The Sports Ready Concussion program is a systematic program based on the most recent research. With our evidence based approach each athlete will be monitored as there are gradual increases of demand on the brain and body If an athlete sustains a concussion he or she will now have more objective data to ensure safe return to play providing assurance to every athlete and his or her parent, by taking extra precautions and steps to improve the athlete’s health. After an athlete has completed physical therapy for a concussion or no longer has symptoms at rest the Sports Ready Concussion Program is a great option before athletes to return to play.

The sports specific program

This is designed based upon the demands of each sport, required movement patterns and preventative care from the common injuries sustained from each sport. In the sports specific program, each athlete will undergo an assessment before the program begins and a PostTest upon conclusion of the program.

Our Sports Ready assessments combine the latest research and experience to recognize predisposing factors that can lead to injury such as deconditioning, muscle imbalance, fear/ anxiety and poor movement patterns with sports specific movements.

Sports Ready is offered to athletes from age 12 and up 2x/week for a month under the direct supervision of a certified specialist and available in 3 options:

  • Train with us
    Individual athletes or the entire team comes to our facility to train.
  • We come to you
    A sports performance specialist will bring all the required training equipment with them and will take a team or group of athletes through proper training and conditioning during a scheduled practice.
  • Act as a consultant
    We can create a training program that a coach or team parent can conduct. As the coach takes the team through the training sessions we can provide consistent feedback as to improving sessions.
