What is an Injury Prevention Program?
We are committed to keeping you safe, optimizing your performance, and helping you recover from injury. Our clinics provide community-based instruction to athletes to reduce the risk of injury, particularly for the hips, knees, and ankles. Our clinicians are specially trained to understand what risk factors exist and how they can be addressed during warm-up, practices, and games.
In addition, injury prevention strategies and ergonomics can be provided to for employers looking to invest in the safety of their employees. This can include job specific stretching and strengthening, body mechanics analysis, and comprehensive training.
When implemented correctly, injury prevention programs have been shown to reduce the risk of injury and enhance athletic performance.

What to Expect
Every patient has a unique health history, diagnosis and personal goals. When you come for your first appointment, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
We work with most major insurance providers and do our best to help keep the paperwork pain-free. If you’d like to confirm your insurance coverage, please let us know and we can verify when you schedule. If your insurance provider requires a co-pay, we will ask for this payment at each visit. We accept payments by cash, check or credit card.
When to Arrive
On average, a patient’s first visit lasts about an hour. We typically ask patients to arrive 15 minutes early to sign-in, complete paperwork and/or change clothes.
What to Bring
On your first visit, you’ll need to bring your physician referral or prescription (if needed), your insurance card, your primary registration forms, your ID or driver’s license and your co-payment (as applicable). If desired, you may bring a change of clothing.
How it Works
During your first visit, your physical therapist will do an initial evaluation and discuss your plan of care. The therapist uses this information to set goals for your continued treatment. Physical therapy goals may include improved movement, strength, endurance and flexibility, as well as decreased pain. Your subsequent visits will focus on treatment that is based on your diagnosis and individualized goals.
