The best way to treat an injury is to prevent it before it occurs. Before jumping into another sports season, make sure your body is ready for action with a sports injury prevention screening.
Prepare, Prevent, and Play
During the sports injury prevention screening, we perform a series of simple tests to identify your personal risk factors for a lower extremity injury.
A licensed physical therapist, physical therapist assistant, or certified athletic trainer will identify predispositions to injury by assessing the following aspects of your performance:
Mobility and Flexibility
Lower Extremity Strength
Dynamic Control and Mechanics
At your sports injury prevention screening, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss past injuries, go over suggested injury prevention strategies, and ask questions.
Most of the time, the recommendations you’ll receive during your sports injury prevention screening are simple self-treatments that can be easily incorporated into warm-up programs or regular workouts with a minimal time commitment.
