Athletic Injury Risk Screening
We don’t wait until someone has a heart attack to start checking blood pressure, right? Healthcare costs from the cardiovascular system costs more than any other system in the body…..However, the musculoskeletal system (INJURIES) cost more than DOUBLE that!! We haven’t had a standardized system of checks and balances for body movement, until recently.
The FMS (Functional Movement Screening) is what you can think of as your “athletic check-up.” This valuable pre-injury tool used by the military and many collegiate and professional sports teams. It identifies movement asymmetries and dysfunctions. By identifying and addressing non-optimal movement patterns, injury risk can be decreased and performance improved.
When you’re not hurt…yet, but you’re getting ready to ramp-up or begin a new training program. Or maybe you can feel something coming on that might turn into an injury if you’re not careful. This is the perfect time to get checked-out. We’ll look at strength, flexibility, and motor control based on any and all movements or activities you report difficulty with in order to provide you with a customized reconditioning program to augment your current training. Includes a standard functional movement screen and Y Balance testing.
Corrective Exercise Sessions
Treatments to include but not limited to: joint mobilizations, therapeutic exercise, functional myofascial taping, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM)
Investment: $125 per session
You must complete an initial evaluation before you can schedule a corrective exercise session.
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching techniques are commonly used to enhance both active and passive range of motion through activation of key mechanical receptors found in your own muscles and tendons.
Joint mobilization involves targeted passive movement of a joint. This technique causes physiological peripheral and central nervous system responses that can decrease pain, improve range of motion and increase circulation. There are different grades of amplitude and velocity that can be used depending on the purpose of treatment and desired therapeutic outcome.
