Our physical therapists have specialized training in administering return to sport and injury prevention screening and testing. The information gathered from these series of screens and tests allows us to determine whether it’s safe for an athlete to return to sport after injury while also revealing current injury risk in currently non-injured athletes. Based on the information gathered from these tests, we can prescribe specific exercises to reduce your overall injury risk and facilitate a more rapid and safe return to sport.
This test is used to determine safe return to sport and activity by comparing balance, stability, and strength between the right and left side of your body. The test can be administered for the upper body (in a push-up position) and lower body (standing on the device).
Functional Movement Screen:
This screen consists of seven different movements including: trunk stability push-up, deep squat, hurdle step, shoulder mobility, inline lunge, rotational stability, and straight leg raise. This screen provides us with objective measurements and predictive data on current injury risk while also giving us insight into your current movement patterns allowing us to provide you with specific exercises to reduce your injury risk and improve movement efficiency (run faster, jump higher, squat deeper, etc.).
