Helping you get faster: Speed training increases the athlete’s ability to move around the field of play. Through exercises and drills involving jumping, skipping or hopping motions, athletes gain experience and technique in motions that may take place during game and practice situations.
Running Evaluations: Running evaluations are performed using treadmill equipment to analyze a patients running gait. Each running evaluation includes an assessment of strength, ROM, functional abilities, balance etc.. A patient is observed while running on the treadmill; the information is then used to analyze the patient’s impairments during running. The rehab professional will also discuss proper shoe wear specific to each patient’s impairments and running needs.
Power Training: Power adds a time component to basic strength. Focus is on increasing the speed with which the body can move a force to help improve agility, speed, and vertical leap.
Resistance Exercises or PRE’s through weight training: A program of strengthening is developed and progressed by the rehab staff. Exercises are chosen to improve the muscles responsible for balancing the body against gravity.
FMS: A Functional Movement Screen can determine movement patterns and determine any asymmetry.
Core and Scapula Stability Exercises: Stabilization exercises help the body control it’s center of gravity over it’s base of support to improve agility and over all strength.
Therapy Balls: Performing exercises on an unstable surface helps to increase activation of the stabilizing muscles and improve on kenisthetic awareness.
Gait Training/Gait Analysis: By observing an individual’s walking pattern, problems with flexibility, strength, and posture can be identified and addressed to eliminate pain and restore normal movement.
