Sports Performance and Injury Reduction Program
The Armor Physical Therapy Sports P.A.I.R. Program is designed to partner or PAIR with our local high school teams and athletes to work in conjunction with the athletic department, coaches, athletic trainers, and parents to provide unique opportunities to facilitate success. For an athlete, improving their sports performance is first and foremost. In addition to performance, our priority is to assist in reducing the risk for injury and loss of playing time. There are different facets to our program that we feel can benefit any sports program or athlete sharing a common goal.
FREE INJURY SCREENS
Any of our Armor PT clinics will perform a free injury screen to assist in the proper course of care for the athlete, including self-treatment recommendations, communication to the high school AT-C or referral to a sports medicine physician.
VIDEOTAPED RUNNING GAIT ANALYSIS
This program utilizes state-of-the-art motion capturing software to allow an Armor PT specialist to analyze a running athlete’s form and biomechanics as it relates to their specific sport. Recommendations will be provided for appropriate strength, stretching or recruitment exercises, footwear, form, or the need for foot orthotics.
$65 for individuals or please inquire regarding a team rate.
