WORKSHOPS FOR COACHES, ATHLETES and CLINICIANS

I provide educational and hands on workshops geared to your club’s coaches, to your athletes or for your athletic trainers and other rehab staff that work with your athletes. These workshops typically focus on being able to identify common risk factors for injuries that lead to time off the water for the athlete. Participants also learn mobility skills to address these issues, as well as an erg progression and rehab progression that I typically use with athletes.

SCREENINGS FOR YOUR CLUB

These screenings examine each athlete in your club. I look at overall mobility and strength issues that can lead to injuries. After each screening, I collect data and will provide you, as the coach, with scores for you to utilize as you progress your athletes through the season. I will also provide you with mobility and exercises you can add to your training sessions based on the results in the screenings.

EVALUATION AND TREATMENTS IN THE OFFICE

I evaluate and treat a wide variety of conditions and movement dysfunctions.  Some examples are listed below.  If you have a question regarding an injury you do not see here, please email or call and I can give you more information or help refer you to a practitioner that is appropriate.

My focus in treatment is a very hands-on approach.  I will spend much of the visit performing manual therapy, either soft tissue work on muscles, fascia and tendons or joint mobilization and functional mobilizations.  I will use modalities as needed and teach you exercises to do at home.  Much of the success of my clients comes from those that are self-motivated to do the work at home or at the gym to allow our visits to be spent getting the work done on your body that you cannot do yourself.  Here are some of the treatment techniques I use on a regular basis:

  • Joint mobilization

  • Myofascial release and soft-tissue mobilization

  • Functional Mobilizations

  • Preventative therapy and patient education programs

  • Neural tension testing and treatment

  • Kinesiotaping

  • Iontophoresis

  • Ultrasound

  • Neuromuscular muscle re-education

  • Spinal stabilization program

  • Biomechanical assessment

  • Electrotherapy including muscle re-education and interferential
