Athletic Training Services

True experts in functional movement and performance enhancement, our athletic trainers offer:

  • Rehabilitation: We apply the same proven approaches used with elite athletes to your unique situation and goals. Our expertise includes post-operative rehab, as well as rehab for both chronic and acute injuries and conditions.
  • Return-to-Play Training: We offer evidence-based programs that may utilize force plates, biofeedback and running analysis to formulate your plan. Following a biomechanical screen and evaluation, we can problem-solve with you.
  • Injury Prevention: With proper training, we can help you reach your full potential and avoid certain types of injuries. We offer ACL screening, biomechanical screening, corrective exercise strategies, gait analysis, and strength and conditioning programming to help identify and address vulnerable areas.

Evaluations, Follow-Up Visits and Costs

Your first consult is usually a 50-minute evaluation, during which time a trainer will review your history and assess your injury or concern from an athletic training perspective. This visit may included biomechanical assessments and a plan for restoring performance.

Follow-up visits are 30 minutes.

We offer 30-minute appointments for manual therapy such as myofascial release, cupping therapy, and the Graston technique.

Athletic training is usually considered an out-of-pocket expense and is usually not covered by health insurance. We offer competitive pricing and cost-effective four-visit training packages.
