Big improvements are the focus to improve overall performance in sports or daily life. This is a great place for clients who have been discharged from formal physical therapy or coming off an injury, but have not yet reached their goals. Return to Sport Evaluation: The Training Room has developed a return to sport testing protocol to assess an athlete’s readiness to return to sports participation following an ACL or other lower extremity injury. Our protocol is based on the most current scientific literature and has been part of a research study for validation. Single leg hopping, shuttle run drill, and The results of the RTS test are relayed to the physician and used for return to play decision making. Injury Prevention Training: All of our performance training whether it is for our athletes or our adult fitness clients are geared to injury prevention training. Specifically for ACL injury prevention, we address the known risk factors of knee injury including modifiable movement patterns: dynamic knee valgus (diving in at the knees), stiff landings, leg dominance and lack of core control. There is evidence that prevention programs have succeeded in reducing knee injuries by 27% and ACL injuries by 51%. So if you are participating in sports, specifically the higher risk sports including basketball, soccer, lacrosse and football, this is a great program for you to keep you healthy and in the game while also enhancing your overall performance. What Our Patients Have to Say: “It is so easy to pop online to and do our sessions. My trainer, Akil, explained the specific area where my pain was originating from on a shared screen with skeletal diagrams, and showed me the muscle groups we would work on strengthening. Due to current circumstances, I’m so grateful to still be able to access a physical trainer. I am perfectly able to see Akil model my assigned exercises and have him evaluate my posture/stance when copying the exercises. In just 3 weeks, my back is already feeling more mobility, less pain, and more stable than in the past two years. I am extremely happy that I decided to do PT at The Training Room. This is my new happy place!!” – A. K.

You will then be asked to go through various movements and actions so your physical therapist can evaluate your movement patterns and identify areas that need to be addressed. A large part of the first visit is education on how to reduce your pain/inflammation and make changes to your lifestyle to begin recovery for your injury/ condition.
