Injury Prevention

We provide quality, comprehensive injury plans for every athlete to prevent injuries or suffering from any type of movement or function disorder.

Our movement specialists identify if the way your body moves or your strength levels are contributing to pain, putting you at an increased risk for suffering a shoulder injury, running injury or even a torn ACL that can hold you back from your highest level of athletic performance. 

Conditions we treat include but are not limited to: 

  • ACL-Tear Prevention
  • Shoulder Injury
  • Runner's Injury

Runner's Injury Prevention:

When it comes to running, that starts with a running analysis.

Our advanced technology gives incredible insight into how your body runs. We measure every movement your lower body makes when running, from your ankle all the way up to your hip.

This allows us to break down every aspect of your technique to determine what is holding you back from being your best, fastest, and most pain-free competitor. After that, we prescribe exercises to strengthen your running. 

The end result is you become a faster, safer runner, prolonging your running career and getting you better results along the way.

Whether you’re a cross country athlete, an adult competitive runner, or a weekend warrior, if you want to run faster or with less pain, you are in the right place. 

Shoulder Injury Prevention:

If you’re an overhead athlete who has ever worried about a shoulder injury like a rotator cuff or labrum tear, a Tommy John injury (which is almost always caused by a bad shoulder), or nerve damage like thoracic outlet syndrome that causes numbness and tingling pain down your arm and hand, and you want to do everything you can to make sure you have a long, injury-free career, you are in the right place.

Physical therapists are movement specialists that have doctorate-level training in assessing, analyzing, and treating movement disorders using the power of your own body.

By knowing exactly what to look for, and how to fix the problems found, pain and injury can be avoided altogether.

ACL Tear Prevention:

There are four key predictors for ACL-tears: strength and power, strength symmetry, and body control.

Strength and power are critical for both athletic performance and injury prevention.

Strength and power symmetry refers to how similar your strength and power levels are between legs. Nobody is 100% the same on both sides, but if one of your legs is significantly stronger or more powerful than the other, your body compensates in ways that put you at increased risk for getting hurt.

Body control is the most well known of these risk factors. Knees that cave in when you run, jump, and make cuts increase the likelihood of injury. 

Testing each of these factors gives you a clear idea of your strengths and weaknesses and highlights exactly what you need to work on to remove as much ACL-tear risk as possible.

If you want to know the truth about how your body works, and if you want to prevent a devastating, life-changing injury, this ACL-tear risk assessment is for you.
