Training provided by healthcare professionals

A licensed physical therapist assesses each athlete before his or her training sessions begin. With advanced knowledge of the body and how it moves, a licensed physical therapist evaluates each athlete’s movements and techniques to customize a training program that aims to correct improper movements, reduce the risk of many common sports injuries and maximize physical development.

A Functional Movement Screen (FMS©) allows the therapist to view where the athlete needs further development in areas of weakness and build on their athletic strengths. Athletes then train individual or a small group to meet their training goals.
