Reach your athletic potential
Our Return To Performance Program
Our Program Explained
This program is intended for athletes who have had an injury and train for a competitive or recreational sport or activity. This is a small group program that a certified athletic trainer (ATC) will be leading. The ATC will collaborate with your medical provider on your rehab program and the exercises that should be included to get you back to your sport. This is a fee-for-service program intended to bridge the gap between physical therapy and sports performance training, as well as to limit movement and muscle deficiencies, maximize performance, and reduce risk of reinjury.
RTP includes one-on-one or small group training and the following health care and performance services:
- Clinical and performance assessments
- Training specifically designed for safe return to sport, resilience against future injury, increased level of performance
- Therapeutic services
Phase 1: 1-on-1 training
This phase occurs concurrently with physical therapy/rehabilitation sessions. Training focuses include strengthening and motor patterning for the injured body part in addition to a full-body performance program to maintain and increase sports performance.
Phase 2: 1-on-1 training
A four-week phase including specific activities to increase motor control and continue to build on the strength developed during rehabilitation. Training will be focused on proprioception (i.e. landing mechanics, controlled medicine ball drills, etc.), controlled change of direction, and full body performance training.
Phase 3: Small group training
The final four-week phase is focused on preparing the athlete to return to normal sport and performance training. Training in this phase will progress athletes to high velocity and sport-specific movements (speed & agility, plyometrics, throwing, etc.) while increasing injury resilience, sport performance, and athlete confidence.
