PREHAB & INJURY PREVENTION

"Weak glutes and tight hip flexors can lead to a lot of bad things."


 

At Embody PT, we are well versed in the treatment of common orthopedic injuries sustained by the endurance athlete.  As we ourselves are determined and motivated to participate in the sports we love; and with over 20+ years of experience in sports such as running and soccer, we are driven to help our patients stay at the top of their game! 


WHO SHOULD GET SCREENED...

  • Recurrent injuries

  • Pain

  • Recent surgery with needed instruction on safe return to sport

  • Injuries that occur as you attempt to ramp up mileage or get further into your season (soccer, cross country, etc)...overuse?

  • Trying to prevent ACL or acetabular tear

COMMON INJURIES TREATED... 

  • Shin splints

  • Bursitis

  • ITB Friction

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Low back pain

  • Glute, groin, hip pain


HOW DOES THIS WORK?

  • Health/sport assessment:  functional evaluation of the whole body to determine possible weakness and/or points susceptible to injury

  • SFMA assessment

  • Video gait analysis-assessing mechanics

  • Walking gait analysis for proper shoe fit to prevent injury

  • Developing a home exercise program to address and eliminate muscle imbalances resulting in pain and poor performance

The Athlete

Sometimes, it is difficult to find a therapist who "speaks your language."  At Embody PT, we have over 20+ years of experience in the performance arts.  We know what an "arabesque, cabriole, and fondu" are, and we are trained to look for movement dysfunction in the dancer.  

COMMON INJURIES TREATED... ​
Low back/groin/buttock pain, snapping hip syndrome, femoral acetabular impingement, acetabular labral tears​

Performance Artist

Yoga has proven to be a safe and effective way to alleviate and manage many forms of back pain and neck pain.  At Embody PT, we believe in the therapeutic benefits of yoga and utilize many poses/asana as a means of "exercise."  What is more, we have undergone teacher trainings, receiving designation as RYT 200 by Yoga Alliance, in asana and we are skilled at teaching simple postures for exercise or assisting yogis in returning to their practice safely after injury. 


If you are interested in the practice of yoga (beginner) or are recovering from an injury or illness and are not sure you are “ready” for a class setting, we offer a one-on-one "yoga" evaluation with specific direction for your practice.

Yoga Evaluation & beginning program :  Functional evaluation of the whole body to determine possible weakness and/or points susceptible to injury, establishment of individualized beginning program or postures to include or exclude from practice due to current/past injuries, follow-up sessions to review program and progressions; rate upon request
