Prior to starting Precision Movement Training the athlete must complete one of our testing services [link Testing]. This biomechanical analysis will assess common athletic movements and identify any potential impairments that can predispose one to injury and adversely affect performance. The data obtained provides measurable and visual evidence to athletes and guides the initial training program and goals.
PT Motion Lab specializes in return to sport/injury prevention assessment and training. Following the conclusion of formal rehabilitation with our colleagues at MTI Physical Therapy, and while the athlete is transitioning to practice and sport participation, an injury prevention and safe return to play program can improve your performance. The goal of the training and education for injury prevention is to ensure that the athlete is knowledgeable of, and prepared for, the demands of athletic competition to maximize safe performance. All training sessions are one-on-one between the athlete and a physical therapist, focusing on improving the training qualities associated with your sport and/or your tissue injury.
All training programs are not created equal, as no two athletes are the same in terms of needs and performance. Some programs focus on improving joint mobility, flexibility and building strength, while others include skill-specific training to maximize an athlete’s skill set. The Precise Movement Training approach is a movement-based training program designed to efficiently target the athlete’s specific weaknesses and maximize their sport-specific movement skill. The unique eye of a manual physical therapist training in TRT[link] and movement can fill the space between injury and athletics.
Exercise prescription cannot be generalized as each athlete’s goals, sport and biomechanics are unique. Based on your individual identified impairments and athletic needs, your programs may include the following:
- Tissue Repair and Soft Tissue Management
- Education on training safety modifications
- Strength Development
- Power Development
- Landing Mechanics
- Jumping Mechanics
- Running Mechanics
- Change of Direction Mechanics
- Linear Speed Development
- Agility and Lateral Speed Development
- To maximally prepare the athlete for the demands of athletic competition or leisure sport
- To optimize muscular strength, power, speed and agility in the context of an individual’s sport
- To reduce biomechanical risk factors that can negatively impact performance
- The athlete who is experiencing pain or symptoms during movements related to training for or participating in sport
- The proactive athlete who is looking to optimize their movement mechanics in their particular sport
