A complete testing system for the athlete requires an assessment of both the body’s hardware and software. To do this requires a combination of:
1) Clinical mastery of manual therapy for testing joints and tissues.
2) Standardized and predictive measurements and tests.
3) Computerized sensors and video.
PT Motion Lab uses a combination of these tests and measures specific to the individual athlete and their sport. Your physical therapist will help you to determine the best combination for your athletic assessment. Testing results require an analysis of the combined hardware and software function of your body.
What is my “Hardware” and “Software”?
Tissue Repair Training (TRT): The materials—improving strain and load qualities of collagen/tendon, bone, cartilage and discs for recovery and performance enhancement. After primary healing is over a transaction is made to Tissue Tolerance Training (T3) to make your tissue stronger than it was prior to injury.
Joint motion: The hinges—Prevention and performance through normalizing 3-dimensional joint motion, both locally and throughout the entire biomechanical chain.
Endurance: The plumbing—More than the heart, cardiovascular training also includes enhancing local vascular supply for muscle for improved performance, recovery and healing.
Strength: The Motor—building muscle with purpose.
Motor control: The Code—the neurological software behind normal muscle activation, timing and sequencing.
Balance: The Platform– balance and performance with synergistic integration of the vestibular system, ocular system, cervicogenic balance systems and lower extremity somatosensory systems.
Brain health: The Hard Drive—concussion rehab, sleep.
Coordination: The Patterns—Training for efficiency and precision.
Knowledge: The Information—Education to understand how to train for a lifetime of performance.
Psychology: The Edge—Understanding how pain actually works and what it means, performance visualization, performance enhancement.
