Athletic Performance & Injury Screenings ///

ASSESSING & ENHANCING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

We help athletes reduce risk for serious injuries, better understand their movement profile and improve their self-care.

 

Every sport has different physical demands and each person’s anatomy is very unique. Athletes are prone to overuse injuries. Performance without movement literacy will lead to increased likelihood of injury. Our AAPT Athlete Screening and Assessment will identify dysfunctional movement patterns that could lead to injury in the future. 

Even though individuals are performing an activity or sport at a high level, it has been observed that many of these same individuals are limited in fundamental movement. This leads to the use of compensatory movements in order to achieve or maintain the level of performance needed for the activity. For example, a stuck ankle will take away from your ability to jump.  Catching problematic movement patterns or capacity deficiencies early on and correcting them with a personalized program is an effective way to reduce injury risk.  

​Our goal is to teach every athlete to have an increased awareness of their movement profile and with the knowledge to proceed in their sport with more effective practices for injury prevention, physical capacity and overall function.

What does an Athlete Performance Screen involve?

  • The DPT will spend 1 Hour one-on-one with each athlete

  • The DPT will perform movement tests to assess where the athlete demonstrates potential problems

  • The DPT will identify specific issues that need improvement, i.e. tissue extensibility dysfunction, motor control dysfunction 

  • The DPT will prescribe specific exercises that address these issues, making sure the athlete understands the areas of concern and the proper execution of the corrective exercises.

  • The DPT will also communicate with the athlete on a plan moving forward. For example, does the athlete need ongoing Physical Therapy treatment or further medical intervention.
